The 2014 NBA All-Star Game will be held in New Orleans, and the league is already prepping up for the Big Easy bash. The All-Star game ballot has been officially released, and you can head over here to cast your votes on three frontcourt players and two guards per conference.
Each conference has 60 players to choose from: 24 guards and 30 frontcourt players to sort through. You can also write in any of your favorites not on the ballot. The fans' votes decide the starting five for the West and East and the coaches select the reserves, as usual.
There are 67 days until the All-Star Game, however, and the NBA season is just two weeks old. Most teams haven't even played 10 games yet, so it may be best to hold out until closer to the Jan. 20 cutoff date.
It's not a bad idea to start tinkering with the possibilities in the meantime. I'll take the 8-0 Indiana Pacers' starting five out East over whatever Western Conference combination is out there.
