Analysis

Dwight Howard, LeBron James and Kobe Bryant have received their due from fans, but NBA.com's John Schuhmann looks at some players deserving (yet lacking) in votes. Read Full Article

The 2009 NBA All-Star Balloting program, which also includes partner 2K Sports, allows fans around the world to vote daily for their favorite players as starters for the All-Star Game in a variety of ways, including: at each NBA arena; in 20 languages on NBA.com; and through mobile phones at t-zones® on T-Mobile phones or wap.nba.com for any wireless carrier. A T-Mobile-branded All-Star Balloting widget is available on NBA.com so that fans can "grab" the widget and place it on their blogs, social network pages, or personal websites allowing others to vote directly from the widget. Voting will continue through Jan. 11, for paper balloting and Jan. 19, for NBA.com and wireless balloting.

NBA All-Star 2009 is a week-long celebration that enables fans to experience the thrill of the world's greatest athletes playing the game they love and features a full slate of community-enhancing activities including the NBA Cares All-Star Day of Service and fan festivals such as NBA All-Star Jam Session.

One hundred twenty players -- 60 each from the Eastern and Western conferences -- are listed on the NBA All-Star ballot. Voters select two guards, two forwards and one center from each conference. The 120 players on the ballot were selected by a panel of media experts who regularly cover the NBA. This year's panel included Paul Coro (Arizona Republic), Ernie Johnson (TNT), Jack McCallum (Sports Illustrated), David Moore (Dallas Morning News), Marc Spears (Boston Globe) and Marc Stein (ESPN.com).

The final balloting update will be issued on Thursday, Jan. 8 and the announcement of the All-Star starters will take place on Thursday Jan. 22, prior to a TNT doubleheader. Following the completion of fan voting and the starting line-up announcement, the head coaches in each conference will vote to determine the remaining All-Stars in their respective conference, which will be announced Thursday, Jan. 29 prior to a TNT doubleheader.

As the presenting partner of the 2009 NBA All-Star Balloting program, and in support of the NBA's season-long effort to better the various communities in Phoenix, T-Mobile will donate $1 for every ballot cast on t-zones, T-Mobile's wireless Web portal, to help the youth of Phoenix. The week leading up to the 58th NBA All-Star Game will feature a full slate of community-enhancing activities and fan festivals, such as NBA All-Star Jam Session presented by adidas and the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge & Youth Jam on Friday, Feb. 13.

TD is DA MAN!!

But of course Timmy at the FIRST!!No question....

At Foward he is the one and only.
Not like last year the NBA people who put him at Center and lost him so many votes, as Yao is a vacum for all the Chinease votes....still TD was there last year thankfully...

Goddamn chinese.. Kind of useless question. Take a look at the voting list and you'll see Alston and Battier...

Artest, Scola and T-Mac deserve votes, but what Battier will do in an all-star game?

By the way Manu's got a good number of votes, altough, I think he won't be called by the coaches. Tony maybe, but I don't think so

T-Mac, Kobe, STAT, Duncan, Yao - CP3, Billups, Roy, Melo, Nowitzki, Gasol and Al Jefferson, maybe

I guess we are luck Jianlian doesnt play in the West otherwise he'd be starting at forward along with Tim.

Damn,I wonder if he will catch Garnett?


Oh and LOL at Bruce racking up the votes.Seventh among West forwards! Go Bruce!

just to be fair to the chinese, grant hill used to be voted in to play when he was injured. at least yi PLAYS. he's completely undeserving, and thankfully he's still behind kg and lebron. if he did start though, maybe it would do some good in altering the all-star game - could you imagine the backlash in voting in the most undeserving all-star ever?
