NBA All-Star Ballot Includes Four Orlando Magic Players

The NBA unveiled the ballot for the 2011 NBA All-Star Game today, and the four players who represented the Orlando Magic last year reprise their role this year. The ballot includes Jameer Nelson and Vince Carter among the Eastern Conference's 24 guards, Rashard Lewis among the East's 24 forwards, and Dwight Howard among the East's 12 centers.

The coaches voted Nelson and Lewis onto the 2009 roster, while the fans have voted Howard as the East's starting center in each of the last three seasons; he made his debut as a reserve in the 2006/07 season.

Carter didn't make the team in his first season with the Magic, but has eight All-Star appearances in 12 seasons. Though he hasn't posted eye-popping per game stats this season, his far improved field-goal percentage, and his status as a key player on a contending team, could earn him some favor with the coaches. He stands little chance of earning the fans' vote.

Los Angeles will host this year's All-Star Game on Saturday, February 20th 2011. Earlier this year, the NBA designated Orlando as the host city for the 2012 event.
