Vote, vote, vote. The NBA launched the NBA All-Star Voting 2016 on December 10 and there are multiple ways you can vote for the most deserving players. (Or just the ones you like the most.) Last year's leading vote-getter was Golden State's Steph Curry, who made the All-Star voters look extra smart by going on to win both the NBA Championship and the NBA MVP Award. LeBron James finished second in all three -- All-Star votes, MVP votes, and title hopes. Voting continues through January 18. This year's All-Star Weekend -- featuring the NBA's 65th All-Star Game -- is in Toronto, February 12-14.
Below are the 7 ways to vote. Using different methods you can vote for ten players a day -- multiple times. Every player in the league is eligible.
- NBA.com/vote: fill out a ballot, choosing five players from each conferene, two guards, three bigs
- Twitter: a little messier, but fans can tweet, retweet or reply with a player’s first and last name using the hashtag #NBAVOTE
- NBA App: works like NBA.com; just grab it at iTunes or Google Play
- Facebook: Use a player's name anywhere on Facebook with the hashtag #NBAVOTE and it counts. As elsewhere ten per day limit.
- Instagram: any photo will do, doesn't have to be of Riley Curry, but put the player's name and, yup, hashtag #NBAVOTE
- Text/SMS:: Text to 6-9-6-2-2 -- otherwise known as MYNBA, and say "Westbrook" or something like that. One different name per text, ten times a day. Watch your charges.
- Google Search: type NBA Vote All-Star, get results, do your thing.
See you on Valentine's Day. Give the NBA players some love.
