Report: Fans Will No Longer Have Full Control Over NBA All-Star Voting
It’s about damn time.
It has been a topic of discussion for years, whether fans should be allowed to have full control over all-star voting. And every year some deserving players get snubbed because they aren’t a household name, big-time dunker, or all-around flashy player.
On Monday, the NBA officially changed the NBA voting process.
Fans will have 50% of the vote, media 25% and players 25%.
ESPN sources say the NBA is making All-Star balloting changes to give players (and media) a say in voting for starters alongside the fans.

The NBA had used fan voting to select the starters for its mid-season game since the 1974-75 season.
