NBA All-Star Weekend is just around the corner and All-Star voting is the new trend around the internet. Along with the preparation of the biggest annual event of the NBA, the organization has revealed the details regarding the first fan returns of All-Star ballots which highlight LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. In addition, NBA has released the All-Star jerseys that are to be featured during the All-Star game that will be held in New Orleans.
According to the report from The Bitbag, NBA and 2K Sports decided to release these official jerseys last week after several players have uploaded their own customized jerseys. The announcement of these All-Star jerseys were made through their official Facebook account along with the reminders on voting their favorite player using the hashtag NBAVote.
Based on the report, the 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend is scheduled on Feb. 17, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Meanwhile, numerous fans around the globe are now starting to vote using the #NBAVote method. In addition, aside from NBA's official website, several social media platforms have also been actively promoting this campaign, as International Business Times reported.
On the other hand, 2K Sports has announced the NBA 2K17 All-Star tournament last New Year's eve. Apparently, it shares the same format to NBA 2K16 Road to the Finals which was held last season. However, this year's tournament will enable both PS4 and Xbox One players to form their own Pro-Am teams. This was originally made by various online gamers who played against each other in different in-game events.
Meanwhile, those from the winning squads earn points for their overall scores. These are also showcased on the game's official leaderboard. Overall, a package worth $250,000 will be awarded to the team who will bag the championship title. Additionally, all members of the team will receive a trip-of-a-lifetime privilege to the upcoming 2017 NBA All-Star Game.
