NBA All-Star voting presented by AT&T kicks off December 20

The National Basketball Association (NBA) All-Star Voting presented by AT&T, the Official 5G Wireless Network of the NBA, will kick off on Tuesday, December 20 at 11 a.m. ET to end on Saturday, January 21 at 11:59 p.m. ET, giving fans the opportunity to vote for the 2023 NBA All-Star Game starters via the new NBA App and NBA.com.

The 72nd NBA All-Star Game will take place on Sunday, February 19 at 8 p.m. ET in Salt Lake City, airing on TNT in the United States and reaching fans in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 50 languages.

Fans voting on the NBA App or NBA.com for the first time can sign up for an NBA ID, the league’s new global membership program, and voters in the United States and Canada will be entered for a chance to win a trip to NBA All-Star 2023. Additionally, fans with an NBA ID travelling to Salt Lake City for NBA All-Star 2023 can unlock in-venue seat upgrades, member-only entrances and more. NBA ID, which offers fans benefits and rewards from the league, teams and its partners, is free to join here (https://on.nba.com/3jb0t4A).

Throughout the four-week voting period, fans with NBA ID may submit one full ballot each day via the NBA App and NBA.com. One full ballot comprises three frontcourt players and two guards from both the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference. All current NBA players will be available for selection.

Fans will have six days where their vote will count three times on special “3-for-1 Days,” with the first day taking place on Christmas Day (Sunday, December 25) from 12:01 a.m. ET – 11:59 p.m. ET. Additional 3-for-1 Days will be available on Sunday, January 1, Friday, January 6, Friday, January 13, Monday, January 16 and Friday, January 20 from 12:01 a.m. ET – 11:59 p.m. ET.

NBA players and media will continue to join fans in selecting the NBA All-Star Game starters. Fans will account for 50 per cent of the vote, while all current players and a media panel will account for 25 per cent each. Players and media will be able to complete one ballot.

Fan voting updates will be shared on the first three Thursdays in January (January 5, 12 and 19). TNT will reveal the NBA All-Star Game starters, including the two team captains, on Thursday, January 26 during TNT NBA Tip-Off presented by CarMax. TNT will also announce the reserves, as selected by NBA head coaches, on Thursday, February 2 during TNT NBA Tip-Off.

After all votes are tallied, players will be ranked in each conference by position (guard and frontcourt) within each of the three voting groups – fan votes, player votes and media votes. Each player’s score will be calculated by averaging his weighted rank from the fan votes, the player votes and the media votes. The two guards and three frontcourt players with the best score in each conference will be named NBA All-Star Game starters. Fan voting will serve as the tiebreaker for players in a position group with the same score.

How Fans Can Vote:

NBA App: Access the ballot and vote through the NBA App, which is available on Android and iPhone. Fans can fill out one full ballot per day (per day is defined as once every 24 hours) by selecting up to two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference.
