No "Center" on NBA All-Star Ballot

By October 24, 2012

Follow me on:

The NBA's all-star ballot will have a new look this year. The center position will no longer be listed separately; instead, fans will choose three frontcourt players and two guards.

The change addresses two significant trends. More and more teams are using non-traditional lineups with a natural power forward as the nominal center; Miami (Chris Bosh) and Boston (Kevin Garnett) are two of the most obvious examples. And there really aren't that many true centers that really deserve spots in the all-star starting lineup.

The 2013 NBA All-Star Ballot will be released on November 13. The game will be played on February 17 at the Toyota Center in Houston.
