2019 NBA All-Star Game: Fan voting opens, includes '2-for-1 Days' when ballots count double

Fan voting for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game is open ahead of five Christmas Day matchups, the league announced Tuesday.

Voting concludes on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, Jan. 21, at 11:59 p.m. ET. 

The 68th NBA All-Star Game will be played at 8 p.m. ET Sunday, Feb. 17,  in Charlotte with TV coverage on TNT.

Five “2-for-1 Days” will allow fans to have their votes count twice on Jan. 3, Jan. 4, Jan. 10, Jan. 11 and Jan. 21 through all voting platforms.  All “2-for-1 Days” will be designated midnight-11:59 p.m. ET.

TNT will reveal the All-Star starters, including the two captains, on Jan. 24 during TNT NBA Tip-Off.  The network will announce the reserves, as selected by NBA head coaches, on Jan. 31 during TNT NBA Tip-Off.

The All-Star Game will follow last year’s format, with the two team captains drafting rosters from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves and making their picks regardless of conference affiliation. The captains will be the All-Star starter from each conference who receives the most fan votes in his conference. 

Details about the NBA All-Star Draft will be announced at a later date.

For the third consecutive year, NBA players and media will join fans in selecting the NBA All-Star Game starters.  Fans will account for 50 percent of the vote, while all current players and a media panel will account for 25 percent each.

Throughout the voting period, fans may submit one full ballot each day through the NBA App and NBA.com, as well as on Google and through the Google Assistant.  All current NBA players will be available for selection.

Fan voting updates will be shared on Jan. 3, 10 and 17.
