NBA.com is reporting that the league will announce a change to its All-Star ballot on Wednesday, removing the centre position. Fans will be required to vote for three frontcourt players, instead of two forwards and a centre.
The change makes sense with fewer teams relying on a traditional centre anymore. Tim Duncan has long played as the Spurs' centre even though he's listed as a forward on the Western Conference ballot, and the Miami Heat won the championship last season with forward Chris Bosh playing as their centre.
The All-Star game is Feb. 17 in Houston.Suggest a correction
