They would vote for players from each conference to represent that conference in the All-Star Game, 5 starters and 7 reserves per team. As Zillgitt notes, the game does not have to be played with the competitiveness of a Finals game, but in recent years, the exhibition had become listless, with little defense or energy.
The NBA All-Star Game will air live on TNT on February 18 at 8 p.m. ET. And with the 2017 season fast approaching, the excitetement to see this new re-vamped All-Star game will only grow higher.
Players will still be voted in the same way, with weighted votes from fans, media, and other players.
The NBA All-Star game, which normally highlights All-Star weekend, has received nearly a complete makeover. He was snubbed from last year's All-Star game in New Orleans. Coaches still select the 14 other reserves who play on the team after the starters are selected. Let's just hope whoever is their All-Star game coach runs the triangle.
Most notably, the two conferences will not compete against one another beginning with this season's All-Star game in Los Angeles. If LeBron James were to win the fan vote and received the No. 1 overall pick the draft, who would he take?
