July 22, 2016 - The NBA announces that they are moving the 2017 All-Star Game from Charlotte, North Carolina, because of state legislation passed in March which limits anti-discrimination protections for LGBT people and demands that transgender people use the bathroom according to the gender on their birth certificate.

May 24, 2017 - The NBA announces the 2019 All-Star Game will be played in Charlotte, citing the partial repeal of the so-called bathroom bill, HB-2, as the reason for the change.

Selection Process:

Fans around the world vote for the starters for each team.

The 30 head coaches vote for the remaining members of the All-Star teams in their respective conferences. Coaches must vote for seven players in order of preference but are not allowed to vote for players from their team. The selections must include two guards, two forwards and a center. Two other players are chosen regardless of position.

If any player cannot participate in the All-Star game, the NBA Commissioner will select a replacement after the coaches select reserves.

Head coaches for the East and West All-Star teams are based on the teams with the best winning percentage in each conference following the Sunday games played two weeks prior to the NBA All-Star Game.
