The NBA officially released their All-Star Ballot for the 2014 NBA All-Star Game, and sure enough, Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Brook Lopez are all listed on the ballot.

The five have 35 combined NBA All-Star appearances, with Garnett leading the way with 15. Lopez earned his first All-Star appearance last season as a replacement for the injured Rajon Rondo. Each conference has 60 names listed, chosen by Greg Anthony (NBA Digital), Mary Schmitt Boyer (Cleveland Plain Dealer/PBWA), Zach Lowe (Grantland), and John Reid (New Orleans Times Picayune). Anthony was color commentator for the Nets last season on YES Network.

The Nets also had all five starters on the ballot last season.

There are numerous ways to vote for players. On Twitter, you can vote for up to 10 players per day with the hashtag #NBABallot and the player’s first and last name. You can do the same on Facebook by commenting on any official NBA team or league page. If social media isn’t your thing, firstly, congratulations; secondly, you can vote with the NBA Game Time App on Android or iOS phones, or text your vote to 69622 (MYNBA) up to ten times per day.

You can also vote online — here.
