The Heat’s Dwyane Wade (929,542) and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving (860,221) comprise the Eastern Conference’s starting backcourt.

2013 NBA ALL-STAR VOTING RESULTS

January 18, 2013

The Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant (1,591,437) edged the Miami Heat’s LeBron James (1,583,646) as this year’s leading vote-getter in the 2013 NBA All-Star voting, earning his record 15th consecutive All-Star nod. Bryant breaks a tie with Jerry West, Karl Malone, and Shaquille O’Neal for the most consecutive NBA All-Star selections. A four-time NBA All-Star MVP (2002, 2007, 2009, and 2011), Bryant holds the distinction as the youngest All-Star in NBA history (1998). In last year’s All-Star Game in Orlando, he passed Michael Jordan as the game’s all-time scoring leader.

The 62nd NBA All-Star Game will be played at the Toyota Center in Houston on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013 (8 p.m. ET), televised exclusively on TNT and broadcast exclusively on ESPN Radio in the U.S. The All-Star Game will reach fans in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 40 languages.

Bryant’s partner at the guard position in the Western Conference starting lineup is the Los Angeles Clippers’ Chris Paul (929,155). The West’s starting frontcourt features the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kevin Durant (1,504,047), the reigning NBA All-Star MVP, the Lakers’ Dwight Howard (922,070), and the Clippers’ Blake Griffin (863,832).

Joining James, a two-time NBA All-Star MVP (2006, 2008), in the Eastern Conference frontcourt are the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony (1,460,950) and the Boston Celtics’ Kevin Garnett (553,222), the 2003 NBA All-Star MVP. The East guards are the Heat’s Dwyane Wade (1,052,310), the 2010 NBA All-Star MVP, and the Celtics’ Rajon Rondo (924,180), who earns his first All-Star Game start. Garnett’s selection, his 15th, ties him with Bryant and O’Neal for the second-most All-Star Game nods in league annals. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was elected to 19 games.

The 2013 NBA All-Star voting, which concluded Jan. 14, gave fans around the world the opportunity to vote daily for their favorite players as starters for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game in Houston. For the first time, NBA fans were able to vote via social media networks, including Facebook and Twitter, and Sina Weibo and Tencent QQ in China.

In selecting the reserves, the 30 NBA head coaches must vote for seven players within their conference, including two guards, three frontcourt players and two players regardless of position. Coaches are not permitted to vote for players on their team. After the coaches select the reserves, if a player is unable to participate in the All-Star Game, NBA Commissioner David Stern will select a replacement. Reserves will be announced Jan. 24, on TNT.

The East and West All-Star coaches and coaching staffs will be determined by the best record in the conference through games played Feb. 3. Thunder coach Scott Brooks and the Chicago Bulls’ Tom Thibodeau, by virtue of having served as head coaches in the 2012 All-Star Game in Orlando, are not eligible to coach in this year’s game.

NBA All-Star 2013 in Houston will bring together some of the most talented and passionate players in the league’s history for a global celebration of the game. The 62nd NBA All-Star Game, which will take place on Sunday, Feb. 17 at Toyota Center, will reach fans in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 40 languages.

INSIDEHOOPS.COM EDITOR'S QUICK, UNEDITED REACTION TO THE VOTING

If the voting ended today, the starters would be: Wade, Iverson, LeBron, Garnett and Dwight Howard in the East, and Kobe, McGrady, Melo, Dirk and Amar'e in the West.

Let's start with the West. Kobe, Melo and Amar'e are good picks and sure things to make it. Dirk is also a good pick, and he has a decent but not massive lead over Tim Duncan, who is also worthy of starting. All good there. The problem remains McGrady having 746,625 votes, slightly ahead of Steve Nash's 744,250 and Chris Paul's 701,417. I'm really hoping Nash suddenly gets a big boost of support. And I'm sure I don't need to say this, but obviously I'm a fan of McGrady's like everyone else, but he clearly has no business getting votes like this right now. The logical assumption is that T-Mac continues to get votes from overseas fans who love Yao Ming and tend to support the best players around him.

In the East, Wade, LeBron, Garnett and Dwight have big leads they should all hold onto. Those are four worthy starters. Chris Bosh had been close to Garnett in past voting but KG has pulled away. I'm OK with that, though Bosh is having a great season, so he at least deserves a head-nod. But the issue in the is Allen Iverson (14.0 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 4.5 apg as of January 7) getting all these votes. He's played in just 13 games. And his stats on the 76ers aren't much better than they were in the three games he played for the Grizzlies.

Clearly, Iverson is getting the nostalgia vote. The guy is a legend. Former MVP. Trend-setter. Not a big fan of practice time. A scorer who didn't tend to make teammates better. But a former superstar who captivated fans. And earlier in the season it was looking like his career was over, before the 76ers reached out to bring him back to where it all started.

So, while I don't support Iverson getting to start, I'm not that mad about it. Because the other East guards really aren't so hot. Behind Iverson in the voting is Vince Carter, who is certainly having a much better season than Iverson but also doesn't really deserve to actually start in the big game either. I'd be more annoyed if Iverson was taking a spot away from a guy who absolutely, clearly deserved it, like votes for McGrady are doing to Nash or Paul.

Anyway, no matter what, it's going to be a fun game. If McGrady gets in, he probably won't play much, and even if he does he's apparently healthy now. And he's still Tracy friggin McGrady, a baller. And if Iverson gets in, which now appears likely, he too is more than capable of contributing to the game.

2008 NBA ALL-STAR VOTING RESULTS | JANUARY 24, 2008

Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett led all players in votes received in the NBA All-Star Balloting program that determines starters for the 2008 NBA All-Star Game. Garnett, who will be appearing in his 11th All-Star Game and was the MVP of the 2003 All-Star Game, received 2,399,148 votes, the sixth highest total in NBA All-Star Balloting history. Among active players, Garnett’s 11th All-Star selection ranks second to Miami Heat center Shaquille O’Neal (14).

Garnett edged last year’s top vote-getter and 2006 All-Star MVP LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who came in second overall with 2,108,831 votes. James will make his fourth career All-Star appearance, while Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard finished with the third most votes overall (2,066,991) and will make his first career start in his second career All-Star appearance.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant led the Western Conference, finishing with 2,004,940 votes. Bryant, who was the youngest All-Star in NBA history in 1998, will make his 10th All-Star trip. The reigning All-Star MVP, Bryant edged Denver Nuggets forward Carmelo Anthony as the top vote-getter in the West. Anthony will make his first career All-Star start after finishing with 1,723,701 votes.

Through the 2008 NBA All-Star Balloting program, fans worldwide were responsible for voting in the starters for the 57th NBA All-Star Game, which will be played in New Orleans on Sunday, Feb. 17. The game will air live on TNT, ESPN Radio and in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. Head coaches in each conference will vote to determine the remaining All-Stars in their respective conference, which will be announced Thursday, Jan. 31, on TNT.

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade (1,608,260), who will make his third consecutive All-Star start, and New Jersey Nets guard Jason Kidd (1,246,386), who was voted to his ninth appearance as an All-Star, join Garnett, James and Howard in the Eastern Conference starting lineup.

Joining Bryant and Anthony as part of the Western Conference starting lineup are the Houston Rockets’ Yao Ming at center (1,709,180), who was voted as a starter for the sixth straight year; the San Antonio Spurs’ Tim Duncan (1,712,800), who has been selected to every All-Star team since he entered the league in 1997, will start at forward; and Anthony’s teammate, two-time All-Star MVP (2001, 2004) Allen Iverson (1,203,152), who will make his ninth consecutive All-Star appearance starting at guard.

In selecting the reserves, the head coaches must vote for seven players within their conference, including two guards, two forwards, a center and two players regardless of position. Coaches are not permitted to vote for players on their team. After the coaches select the reserves, if a player is unable to participate in the All-Star Game, NBA Commissioner David Stern will select a replacement.

Boston Head Coach Doc Rivers and the Celtics coaching staff earned the honor to coach the Eastern Conference All-Stars by clinching the best winning percentage in the conference through games of Feb. 3. The Western Conference Coach is yet to be determined. Last year’s All-Star coaches – Phoenix’s Mike D’Antoni and Washington’s Eddie Jordan – are not eligible to coach this year.

The 2008 NBA All-Star uniforms were also unveiled today and were inspired by the uniqueness of New Orleans, the look and feel of the French Quarter, and the rod iron architecture that is unique to the city. The back of the jerseys are silver for the West and gold for the East to represent the conference colors.

FINAL 2006-07 NBA ALL-STAR VOTING RESULTS

JANUARY 25, 2007

FINAL RESULTS -- Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James led all players in votes received in the NBA All-Star Balloting program that determines starters for the 2007 NBA All-Star Game. James, who earned Most Valuable Player honors in last year’s midseason classic in Houston, received 2,516,049 votes, the second-highest total in history behind Yao Ming’s 2005 total of 2,558,278. This year, Yao finished second receiving 2,451,718 votes, the fourth-highest total ever.

The closest voting race in this year’s balloting was among Eastern Conference guards. Miami’s Dwyane Wade secured one starting spot with 2,029,591 votes and Washington’s Gilbert Arenas (1,454,166) edged New Jersey’s Vince Carter (1,451,156) by 3,010 votes in the closest race in 17 years since A.C. Green/Karl Malone (1,226 votes) and John Stockton/Derek Harper (2,562 votes), both in 1990.

Miami center Shaquille O’Neal (1,622,446) was selected to his 14th straight All-Star team, tying Lakers legend Jerry West (14; 1961-1974) and Utah great Karl Malone (14; 1988-2002) for the most consecutive selections. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar holds the record for most All-Star Game selections with 19.

Through the 2007 NBA All-Star Balloting program, which saw a 17 percent increase in votes cast over last year, fans worldwide were responsible for voting in the starters for the 56th NBA All-Star Game, which will be played in Las Vegas on Sunday, Feb. 18 at 8 p.m. ET. The game will air live on TNT, ESPN Radio and in more than 200 countries and territories. Head coaches in each conference will vote to determine the remaining All-Stars in their respective conference, which will be announced Thursday, Feb. 1, on TNT.

Joining Yao as part of the Western Conference starting lineup is his Rockets’ teammate Tracy McGrady (1,942,796), who will be appearing in his seventh All-Star Game. San Antonio’s Tim Duncan (1,436,584), who has been selected to every All-Star team since he entered the league in 1997, and Minnesota’s Kevin Garnett (1,616,575), who captured All-Star MVP honors in 2003, will be the starting forwards. L.A. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant (2,138,777), who was the youngest All-Star in NBA history in 1998, makes his ninth All-Star trip.

James will be joined in the Eastern Conference frontcourt by O’Neal and Toronto’s Chris Bosh (1,091,263), who will be making his first career All-Star start. Arenas also will make his first career All-Star start while Wade makes his second consecutive start and third straight appearance.

In selecting the reserves, the head coaches must vote for seven players, including two guards, two forwards, a center and two players regardless of position. Coaches are not permitted to vote for players on their team. After the coaches select the reserves, if a player is unable to participate in the All-Star Game, NBA Commissioner David Stern will select a replacement.

Phoenix head coach Mike D’Antoni and the Suns coaching staff earned the honor to coach the West as a result of their 112-107 win over New York last night combined with San Antonio’s 90-85 loss to Houston. The Suns (34-8, .800) have clinched the best winning percentage through games of Feb. 4 among eligible Western Conference teams for the All-Star coaching honors. The Eastern Conference Coach is yet to be determined. Last year’s All-Star coaches – Dallas’ Avery Johnson and Detroit’s Flip Saunders – are not eligible this year.

Through the Balloting program, which ran from Nov. 13, 2006 through Jan. 21, fans had the opportunity to vote at all NBA arenas, on the league's official website, and through other methods.

The leaders of both the Eastern and Western Conference players for the final returns of the 2007 NBA All-Star voting program are as follows:

Yao Ming of the Houston Rockets and Shaquille O’Neal of the Miami Heat both eclipsed the all-time single season record for votes received in the NBA All Star Balloting program that determines starters for the 2005 NBA All Star Game. Yao received the most votes (2,558,278) in NBA history while O’Neal collected the second-highest total with 2,488,089 votes as each earned the starting center spot in their respective conference.

Through the 2005 All-Star Balloting program, NBA fans from around the globe were responsible for voting in the starters for the 54th NBA All-Star Game, which will be played in Denver on Sunday, February 20 at Pepsi Center. More than six million ballots were cast, a 14 percent increase from last year’s totals.

The game will be broadcast live on TNT, Rogers Sportsnet, ESPN Radio and audio in several languages on NBA.com (http://nba.com) at 8 p.m. (EST).

Yao is joined in the Western Conference starting lineup by Minnesota’s Kevin Garnett (2,087,200) and San Antonio’s Tim Duncan (1,812,522) at forward and Rockets teammate Tracy McGrady (1,993,687) and Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant (1,815,952) at guard.

O’Neal is joined in the Eastern Conference starting lineup by New Jersey’s Vince Carter (1,803,529) and Orlando’s Grant Hill (1,497,489) at forward and by Cleveland’s LeBron James (1,661,204) and Philadelphia’s Allen Iverson (1,590,400) at guard.

O’Neal has been selected to his twelfth NBA All-Star Game; Garnett to his eighth; Bryant, Duncan and Hill to their seventh; Carter and Iverson to their sixth; McGrady to his fifth; Yao his third; and James will be making his first appearance.

The 30 head coaches will vote for the remaining members of the All-Star teams in their respective conferences, and their selections will be announced on Tuesday, February 8. Coaches must vote for seven players in order of preference but are not allowed to vote for players from their team. The selections must include two guards, two forwards and a center. Two other players are chosen regardless of position. Also, if any player cannot participate in the All-Star Game, NBA Commissioner David Stern will select a replacement after the coaches select reserves.

Stan Van Gundy of the Miami Heat will coach the Eastern Conference All-Stars and at this time the coach for the Western Conference All-Stars has not been determined. Head coaches for the East and West All-Star teams are based on teams with the best winning percentage in each conference following the Sunday games (February 6) played two weeks prior to the All-Star Game with San Antonio’s (37-10, .787) Gregg Popovich and Phoenix’s Mike D’Antoni (37-11, .771) the leading candidates.

For the third consecutive year, NBA All-Stars will wear uniforms created just for the game. This year’s All-Stars will be outfitted in new uniforms from Reebok which were inspired by the Denver Nuggets uniform design. The West will wear white jerseys and the East will wear blue while the shorts will feature a star encapsulated NBA logo on each side, a conference logo on the waistband and a “05DN” wordmark on the center back which represents 2005 Denver.

Through the 2005 NBA All-Star Balloting program, which ran from November 18, 2004 through January 23, 2005, fans had the opportunity to vote in more ways than ever. The balloting program expanded to include 19 languages on the NBA.com Network, downloadable ballots via Verizon Wireless and approximately 150 Loews Cineplex Entertainment movie theaters in the United States. This year, Twentieth Century Fox joined Sprite, America Online, Reebok and approximately 2,100 Foot Locker and Champs Sports stores in the United States and Canada as All-Star balloting partners. Ballots were also distributed in all 29 NBA arenas and all six NBDL arenas.
