The best and worst of 2023 NBA All-Star fan voting so far
The fans no longer have all the power in determining the starters for the NBA All-Star Game, but their vote is still the biggest piece of the pie in selecting the five players from each conference who will begin the game. The first round of fan voting results are in for the 2023 NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 18 at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, and like always, the fans got some things right, and some things wrong.
The NBA All-Star starters are determined by 50 percent fan voting, 25 percent media voting, and 25 percent player voting. Two backcourt players and three frontcourt players are selected to start the game from each conference. The league determines the positions, and it’s created some really tough choices for the fans this year. 메이저놀이터
Because of the positional breakdown, one of the following players will have to come off the bench in the East this year: Kevin Durant, Joel Embiid, Jayson Tatum, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. We had all four of those players in our top-six of MVP voting so far, but none of them are eligible for a backcourt spot. It’s past time for the league to just eliminate positions altogether for the All-Star Game, but until that happens, a couple players will always be unhappy.
