NBA To Eliminate Center Position From All-Star Ballot

The NBA is eliminating the center position from the All-Star ballot, allowing fans to vote for three "frontcourt" players.

"It makes sense," Stu Jackson said. "It made sense to our Competition Committee. Having a center is the only specific position that was singled out on the ballot. It just seemed a little outdated and didn't represent the way our game has evolved. By the same token, it also affords the same opportunity, if you have two good centers in a given year, pick 'em both. They both can be selected. Which is impossible right now."

The definition of the center position has become difficult in recent seasons.
