The NBA released its ballot for the 2013 All-Star Game on Tuesday. Voting began this afternoon.
As it announced earlier, the center position no longer exists on the ballot. There are still 60 players from each conference, but instead of 24 guards, 24 forwards and 12 centers, there are 24 guards and 36 frontcourt players.
However, by our count there are 12 legitimate centers in the Eastern Conference frontcourt section: Andrew Bynum, Tyson Chandler, Samuel Dalembert, Spencer Hawes, Roy Hibbert, Al Horford, Brook Lopez, Greg Monroe, Nene, Joakim Noah, Emeka Okafor and Anderson Varejao.
