Did you know….2020 NBA All-Star game will be held at United Center, Chicago, Illinois, United States on Sunday, February 16. That’s not that far away.
As per usual, the NBA fans will get a chance to vote for their favourite starters to start the game. I believe NBA fans vote has a 50% weight and the other 50% will be determined by the NBA coaches.
As always, it’s Team East vs Team West. In my opinion, there are so many deserving players who should be participating at the all-star game but as we all know, there are always going to be snubs since there are limited spots to the all-star roster. I personally think fans votes are very subjective. To me, there is no right or wrong picks. Some pick certain players coz they grew up watching them play. Some just love certain players coz they have good looks or fashion sense. Some prefers to pick players based on the players’ consistent years of productivity. Meanwhile, some just picks players who are having a great season and deserves to be there based on their excellent season.
For me, it’s a bit of everything. I like to pick players who are my favourite players watching them play for many many years. Meanwhile, I will also pick some players who excel and have an excellent season so far. Overall, I like to pick players who I like to watch but also have a good season. I won’t pick a player that I like but have a poor season as I don’t think it’s fair for other players who are having a great season and working their butts off.
