Mark Cuban Says ‘No’ To Fans Voting For All-Star Games

Dallas Mavericks v Utah Jazz

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban thinks fans shouldn’t have a say anymore about which payers are going to be in the NBA All-Stars lineup, because not enough fans seem to care enough to vote, as reported by the Washington Times. Cuban pointed out that the mere 1.5 million votes given to Stephen Curry was so low it was “embarrassing.” He added, “Fans are allowed to vote more than once, right? That’s embarrassing. To think that we couldn’t get people to vote enough times. No one even tried to hack it. That’s how bored they are.”

If NBA fans were actually coming out in large numbers to vote, then Cuban thinks the situation would be different. In that case “the fans have spoken.” However, with so much apathy, Cuban says the “system is broken, absolutely broken.” An alternative he suggests is if the roster were expanded from 12 to 14 and coaches and general managers choose the teams. This system is partially in place, since coaches and managers choose reserves based on stats and overall performance, but it is the fans who still choose the starting lineup.

The NBA said the numbers seemed lower because for the first time, every player was put on the ballot, and that voting actually increased 28% over last year.
