NBA All-Star Game coaches

The coach of the team with the best record in the Eastern and Western Conferences earns the right to coach in the All-Star game, unless they did it the year before.

In 2024, Milwaukee Bucks head coach Doc Rivers coached the Eastern Conference and Minnesota Timberwovles head coach Chris Finch coached the Western Conference.

NBA All-Star voting

The NBA All-Star Game starters are chosen through a combination of three votes: fans, players, and media. Fan votes count for 50% of the final vote, while media and players each account for 25%.

Fan Vote: Fans can vote for their favorite players on the NBA app or NBA.com website. They can submit one ballot per day throughout the designated voting period. Fan votes account for the largest share (50%) of the overall vote.

Player Vote: All active NBA players have the opportunity to submit one ballot for their All-Star picks. Their votes consider individual merit, teammate impact, and overall value to the league. Player votes contribute 25% of the final tally.

Media Vote: A select group of media representatives also submit one ballot for each conference. They consider various factors like player performance, statistics, and overall impact on the game. Media votes make up the remaining 25% of the final vote.

Once the starters are announced, head coaches from each conference (excluding their own players) vote to select seven reserve players each. The reserves consist of two guards, three frontcourt players, and two wild cards (any position).

NBA All-Star Game format

For the 2024 NBA All-Star Game, the league brought back the classic East vs. West format, departing from the team captain draft format used in recent years.

The game will include four 12-minute quarters and traditional scoring, a shift from recent years in which the fourth quarter was untimed with both teams trying to reach a target score.
