The 2014 NBA All-Star Ballot features three members of the Sacramento Kings.  The NBA opened up balloting for this year’s All-Star Game and fans will have an opportunity to vote for Isaiah Thomas, Greivis Vasquez and DeMarcus Cousins to start on the Western Conference squad.

The All-Star ballot features 120 players total, 60 players both the Western and Eastern conferences.  There are 36 frontcourt players and 24 backcourt players for each conference that make up the ballot.  Fans are allowed to select three frontcourt and two backcourt players from both conferences.  A media panel featuring Greg Anthony (NBA Digital), Mary Schmitt Boyer (Cleveland Plain Dealer/PBWA), Zach Lowe (Grantland), and John Reid (New Orleans Times Picayune) selected this year’s ballot.

Voting will end on Monday, Jan. 20 and the starting lineups for both teams will be announced three days later on TNT.  The All-Star special, which will feature Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Kings minority owner Shaquille O’Neal, will air before TNT’s weekly Thursday doubleheader.

The 63rd annual NBA All-Star Game takes place in New Orleans on Feb. 16, 2014. See the entire list of eligible players on this year’s ballot below.
