On Christmas Day,
voting began for the 2022 NBA All-Star team. The captains and starting lineups for the annual NBA All-Star team are determined by a fan vote on the five Western Conference starters and five Eastern Conference starters. The reserves are then selected by NBA head coaches. Last season, LeBron James and Kevin Durant won the fan votes as the All-Star team captains in what was a very amusing All-Star draft. This season, all current NBA players are available for election. Who’s going to be selected this season? How to vote for the 2022 NBA All-Star Game?
