A yearly tradition for players to etch their names in the history books – The All-Star voting for NBA 2020-2021 season has officially begun.
The All-Star game is usually seen as a casual gathering of all the best players in the league – What happens if LeBron James, Stephen Curry, and James Harden played on the same team? That will never happen (hopefully), but the All-star game is a small glimpse into that tiny possibility.
The All-Star is also a away to cement a player’s legacy. One common trait amongst the best players is that they have extremely long stretches of All-Star appearances, signifying their long-standing dominance in the league. For example, LeBron James has been an All-Star for 18 consecutive years.
The All-Star Vote is accessible from the NBA site. Simply click the link and select the guard position (Point & Shooting Guards) and backcourt position (Small Forward, Power Forward, Center) players for both conferences.
After selecting your players, simply click and submit! For the curious, here are the overall top voted All-Stars from the last season!
