Wildcat NBA All-Star Voting Options

uklogo 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (1/8/14) – As the Jan. 20 deadline for NBA All-Star voting nears, UK fans have a multitude of options to vote for all the former UK players currently playing in the NBA, while three former Wildcats find themselves among the top vote-getters of their respective conference’s voting category, according to the latest NBA All-Star balloting returns.

For the second year in a row, NBA fans can vote via social media networks, including Facebook and Twitter, and Sina Weibo and Tencent Microblog in China. Twitter voting allows fans to tweet a vote for 10 unique players each day throughout the All-Star balloting period. The tweet must include the player’s first and last name, along with #NBABallot. Facebook voting allows fans to comment on official league, team or international NBA All-Star Facebook pages by commenting below the post with #NBABallot and the player’s first and last name. Voters can select 10 unique players per day.

This year, the NBA expanded social media voting to include Instagram. Fans can use Instagram to vote by posting an original photo, using #NBABallot and the player’s first and last name in the photo caption. Fans can vote for 10 unique players per day.

NBA fans can also access the ballot and vote through the NBA Game Time and NBA Game Time from Sprint applications, available on Android and iOS. Fans can fill out one full ballot per day through the NBA Game Time and NBA Game Time from Sprint application.

There are several other ways fans can cast their votes as part of this season’s all-digital program including: in 11 languages on www.NBA.com/asb, through SMS voting by texting the player's last name to 6-9-6-2-2 ("MYNBA") or by visiting www.NBA.com/asb on any wireless device. Fans can vote for 10 different players per day, per phone number, via SMS voting by sending 10 separate SMS messages, each one with a different player's last name. Message and data rates may apply. Voters can fill out one full ballot per day on www.NBA.com/asb from a desktop or mobile browser.

Balloting concludes on Monday, Jan. 20.

Washington Wizards guard John Wall sits in fourth place in the Eastern Conference backcourt, while Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins check in at seventh and 12th, respectively, in the Western Conference frontcourt.

The 2014 NBA All-Star game will be played in New Orleans and will air live on TNT on Feb. 16. at 8 p.m.
