The captains and starting lineups for the 2022 NBA All-Star team are determined by a fan vote, which tips off on Christmas Day.
Last year, we saw LeBron James and Kevin Durant win the fan vote to captain the All-Star teams, and it made for a very entertaining All-Star draft.
Who will be selected as captains this year? That could be determined by you, so don’t forget to make your submissions and vote for your favorite players!
