NEW YORK (AP) – With the season just 11 days old, voting has begun for the NBA All-Star game.

The ballot was unveiled during an announcement Wednesday in Orlando, Fla., site of the game on Feb. 26.

Because the start of the season was delayed by the lockout, many teams have only played five games.

Fans can vote on www.NBA.com or by texting the player’s last name to 69622 (”MYNBA”) through Jan. 31, and can vote for 10 different players each day. There is no paper balloting this season for the first time.

Starters will be announced on Feb. 2 prior to a doubleheader on TNT.
