The history of the NBA All Star Game dates back to the year 1951 when the best players were featured in a tournament on March the second. It was held in Massachusetts at Boston gardens. Even though it is not clear whether it was original meant to be an annual event, it has remained so ever since.
Each year, the National Basketball Association matches its finest players from the eastern conference against its finest from the western conference. It has grown to be the platform of showcasing both old and new talent especially during the 82 game seasons.
The selection of participants is usually structures and somewhat rigorous. Fans are allowed to vote their best players as per the different positions. Judges are then allowed to arrive on a decision on which player qualifies best for a certain position basing on the votes that the fans give as well as other parameters like past performance and skill.
If a player is allocated a spot and he can not make it due to an injury or any other reason, the commissioner will be mandated wit the task of picking a replacement. For the purposes of avoiding any form of bias, coaches are not allowed to vote for players.
Selection of coaches is somewhat different. Selection is usually based on the performance of ones team in their respective conference in the two weeks prior to the competition. When all is said and done, only the best performing players as well as the best performing coaches are chosen.
However, the history of the NBA All Star Game shows that a team could have consecutive best performances two years or even more in a row. In such scenarios, the rule of coach selection changes and the one with the second best team will be picked. This way, bias will be avoided.
