Hawks, Warriors look to get out All-Star votes

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — In case you missed the news, voting for the 2015 NBA All-Star game began yesterday. The 64th annual game, which will take place here in New York City on February 15, takes it starting line-up from fan voting. That’s nothing new, but the new wrinkle this year is that thanks to the online voting, every NBA player is eligible to be voted for. You want to vote? You can do so right here.

To help get out the vote, teams have started releasing videos designed to raise awareness about the voting process. In Atlanta, for instance, we see Hawks players Mike Muscala and Kent Bazemore discussing how they want to vote and #which #hashtags #they #might #use in the process.

Meanwhile in Golden State, the Warriors have released a video demonstrating just how easy it is to vote, even to a collection of NBA legends like Jerry West, Al Attles, Nate Thurmond and Jim Barnett. It’s so easy, in fact, even a couple of kids can do it…

NBA Style: Early Sideline Style

NBA Style

What’s going on ya’ll? It’s your boy, BD. The folks at NBA Style asked me to step in and write a piece for the blog, so here I am!

So much has been made of NBA player’s style over the years: What we wear pregame, as we walk through the tunnel, post-game, at the podium…pretty much everywhere. For this post, I decided to run a counter and turn the spotlight on the guys who roam the sidelines and make the adjustments: the coaches.

Just as player style has evolved season-to-season and decade-to-decade, so has that of the League’s coaches. You better believe that like us, some of them have had some style hits and style misses, so there was a lot out there to work with. Let’s take a look through the years: Sideline Style Part 1: The Early Days.

Coach Larry Brown: Mad scientist…only a basketball genius can pull this off.
