(CBS) It may seem early, but the 2012 NBA All-Star Ballot has been announced.
Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer and Richard Hamilton have been selected to represent the Bulls on this year’s ballot for the All Star game to be played in Orlando.
Fans can vote daily for their favorite Bulls players at Bulls.com/VoteBulls and through their mobile phones by texting the player’s last name (ROSE, NOAH, DENG, BOOZER or HAMILTON) to 6-9-6-2-2 (“MYNBA”) or by visiting m.NBA.com on any wireless carrier. Message and data rates may apply.
2012 NBA All-Star Balloting also includes expanded SMS voting. Fans can now vote for 10 different players per day, per phone number, via SMS voting by sending 10 separate SMS messages, each one with a different player’s last name. Fans can vote for All-Stars via SMS at any time by texting from their mobile phones. Previously, fans could cast one SMS vote for one player per day.
Fans can vote directly on Bulls.com/VoteBulls or use their Facebook profile information to help create an NBA.com All-Access account, which enables them to complete a ballot. After submitting their All-Star selections, fans will have the ability to share them with their friends on Facebook and followers on Twitter, and encourage others to cast their ballots.
