The NBA announced Thursday that voting for this year's All-Star Game is officially open. The 2021 NBA All-Star Weekend, initially scheduled for February 12 to 14 in Indianapolis, will reportedly be held in early March. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Atlanta has emerged as the likely site for the weekend.
In Boston, the Celtics have started their campaign for Kemba Walker, Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum.
Brown, who some felt was snubbed last year, recently broke an NBA record after scoring 33 points in 19 minutes. Meanwhile, Tatum looks to make his second All-Star Game appearance, averaging 26.8 points per game, 7 rebounds and 3.7 assists.
More on the Celtics
Four-time NBA All-Star Kemba Walker made his season debut on January 16th after missing 11 games due to a left knee injury. The Celtics announced Sunday that Smart was diagnosed with a Grade I tear of his right medial gastrocnemius after going down in fourth quarter against the Lakers.
