NBA All-Star voting 2022: How it works, fan vote end date, latest results & leaders

We’ve reached (roughly) the halfway point in the 2021-22 NBA season, and that means All-Star debates are about to start heating up.

Ahead of this year’s All-Star festivities, which will take place at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse in Cleveland, the league has started the voting process for basketball fans around the world. Which players will emerge as the leading vote-getters in each conference? Who could get the snub treatment this year?

How does the NBA All-Star voting process work?

The fan vote accounts for 50 percent of the total vote to determine the starters for the NBA All-Star Game. Current players and media members split the other 50 percent. Each ballot consists of two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference. Reserves are chosen by NBA head coaches, and league commissioner Adam Silver chooses injury replacements if necessary.

All-Star captains will then draft their teams from the eligible pool of players (starters in first round, reserves in second round). Captains will be selected based on which players earn the most fan votes in each conference. They are not required to draft based on conference affiliation or position.

How do you vote for the 2022 NBA All-Star starters?

Fans can vote for their favorite players through the NBA app and voting page. They can also vote on Twitter by tweeting, retweeting or replying with the hashtag of a player’s first and last name (#FirstNameLastName) or Twitter handle, along with the hashtag #NBAAllStar.
