Less than two weeks after the beginning of the NBA season, the league has opened 2012 NBA All-Star Balloting.
The New York Knicks are represented on the ballot by their frontcourt of force. Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire are listed as forwards on the ballot and Tyson Chandler is a center. None of New York's guards were chosen for the ballot.
Fans can vote on NBA.com, through SMS messaging by texting the player's last name to 6-9-6-2-2, or by creating an All-Access account on NBA.com, which allows them to complete a ballot. The league expanded SMS voting this season; fans are now allowed to text as many as 10 separate messages per day containing a player's last name.
The balloting will conclude on Jan. 31, All-Star starters will be announced on Feb. 2 and the All-Star Game will be held on Feb. 26, 2012 in Orlando at the Amway Center.
