Instructions for how to select All-Star reserves were e-mailed to all 30 teams Friday, with the head coaches in each conference asked to vote for seven players -- but not their own -- by Tuesday at 3 p.m. Each coach's list of seven submissions for the Feb. 15 show in Phoenix must include two forwards, two guards, one center and two wild cards, with those picks to be ranked from 1 to 7 to give each vote a point value for tiebreaking purposes. To increase the likelihood that the seven guys having the best seasons are indeed selected, coaches are also invited to ignore the listings on the official All-Star ballot if they feel a player can play multiple positions.
