Friday Headlines: Former Cats in the NBA All-Star Voting Edition

Make sure you vote TODAY!

NBA: Miami Heat at Los Angeles Lakers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

As this year’s NFL season nears the end, the NBA season is just starting to ramp up. In fact, we’re just now to the point where fans can cast their votes for their favorite player(s).

Below is a list of each player (both Eastern and Western Conference) selected to their respective all-star team coming out of the gate. On these two lists are five former Kentucky Wildcats and each has made their case to be named an All-Star this season.

Check out the first round of results for the Eastern Conference, with Tyrese Maxey and Bam Adebayo making the initial list.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Anthony Davis, and De’Aaron Fox represent the Western Conference.

It’s probably a longshot for all five of the former Wildcats to make the final roster, but Kentucky fans are able to contribute at the click of a button.

Votes that are cast today will be worth THREE times as much as a vote cast any other day.

So, make sure to show your support for the former Wildcats in contention to make this year’s NBA All-Star game!
