July 14, 2021 - Las Vegas, NV
Voting here: https://www.wnba.com/players/

Voting for the AT&T WNBA All-Star 2021 will tip off on Tuesday, June 15 at 2 p.m. ET and conclude on Sunday, June 27 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Fans will be able to directly impact the on-court competition by voting for up to ten (four backcourt players and six front court players) of the WNBA’s top stars at WNBA.com/vote and the WNBA App. All current WNBA players will be eligible for selection. Two “2-for-1 Days” will allow fans to have their votes count twice on Sunday, June 20 and Sunday, June 27 through WNBA.com/vote and the WNBA App voting platforms. All “2-for-1 Days” will be designated from midnight ET – 11:59 p.m. ET.

The selection of the All-Stars will be conducted through a combination of voting by fans (50 percent of the vote), current WNBA players (25 percent) and a national panel of sportswriters and broadcasters (25 percent). The AT&T WNBA All-Star 2021 rosters will be announced on Wednesday, June 30.

Engelbert talked about the All Star Game 5 days ago, but I forgot to post it.

So......since we now know who is on the Olympic team, should we just vote for who we want on the All Star team but not any Olympians?

I was wondering that too. I saw some player repost an Insta post where a fan voted for them...but also voted for Olympians. I wondered why they started voting before the team was released, if they knew when it was going to be released that is.

Yes, don’t vote for the Olympians. It’ll be a wasted vote.

Right.. vote for the players/team you think can take them down.

BNot to be ugly but give them a challenge. Maybe the biggest they’ll face all summer if possible.

I was put off by needing to put name, email and DOB. That's too much info to throw around frivolously...especially DOB. And to what purpose? Can't be good.

Get a burner email and use a fake name and DOB. I used a protonmail address.

yeah I thought about it. But it's just so ridiculous I don't want to support that. I mean they could go ahead and ask mother's maiden name and password to your paypal account. Then somebody could have it all.

So it’s the Sun/Sky/Wings/Liberty/Dream vs. the Storm/Mercury/Lynx/Mystics. No representatives from the Sparks or Fever.

Perhaps ironically, the only W team with players on both All-Star teams is the “host” team, the Aces, with two selections on each team.

I’m curious why all the tear-shedding Ogwumike fans didn’t do the hard work to get her into the All Star game.

I could have swore Thibault said Australian players will miss one or two WNBA games to get ready for the Olympics. Will Cambage be committing to this All Star game anyway?

Well, first of all, I don't vote for Al-Star games, because I am philosophically opposed to the voting process. And, second of all, I never said that I am pro-Ogwumike, I am anti-Bird; those two things are not the same thing.

Quote:
Opals centre Liz Cambage has struck an agreement with national coach Sandy Brondello to break Olympic camp to play in the WNBA All-Star game.

Cambage has been named to partake in her fourth All-Star clash, which will be played in Las Vegas on July 14 at the same time as the Opals’ pre-Olympic camp in the same city.

Cambage wanted to play in the marquee WNBA match and Brondello will allow her to play if she controls her game minutes.

The WNBA All-Star game also coincides with a day off for the Opals in camp.

Where are the Opals training? Are they coming over here since half of their squad and the coach are already here?

Everyone's going to Vegas. Both the USA teams, the Opals, at least a couple of other men's teams preparing for the Olympics. It's why they're holding the All-Star Game there.

Because Olympic selections and All Star selections are very different things. No one is arguing that Nneka has been one of the top players in the WNBA this year--it's hard to argue that when she's only played 5 games. The same could be said of DT, who has only played 6 total games. If you were picking a true "All Star" team based on 2021 performance, neither of them should be on it.

(For that matter, All Stars are not usually the best 20-24 players in the league, because they are voted by fans, who are not quite impartial. This year I'd argue though they got it pretty close).

Now, I DO think Nneka should have been on the All Star team, if for no other reason than the WNBA should do it for the ratings and casual fan interest.

I'd love to see a 3x3 WNBA v. Team USA matchup as an added attraction to the ASG. Heck it is only 10 minutes long - they could do it at halftime. Would give them a reason to bring in a few other players.

Uh, the fans did everything they could to get Ogwumike into the all-star game anyway. She was in the pool of 36 that the coaches had to choose from, and they didn't pick her (quite rightly, obviously, since she's only played 5 games).
