“Boost Mobile WNBA All-Star 2013 is a celebration of the greatest women’s basketball players in the world and a showcase event for fans of the WNBA,” said WNBA President Laurel J. Richie. “I can’t think of a better way to engage with our fans than to have them select the All-Star starting lineups.”
“Boost Mobile is excited to partner with the WNBA on the selection process for the Boost Mobile WNBA All-Star Game,” said Steve Gaffney, vice president-Corporate Marketing, and Boost Mobile. “We encourage all fans to get out there and cast a vote for their favorite players.”
New York Liberty fans can select from the following players for this year’s squad:
Essence Carson was also on the ballot, but will not be able to play due to tearing her anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee. The Liberty made this announcement known prior to playing the Atlanta Dream on June 9.
There will be 60 players representing all 12 WNBA Teams, as voters can chose daily for their favorite players. One will have to vote in two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference, with a write-in option also available.
Fans can cast their vote in a variety of ways including on www.wnba.com on mobile devices, by visiting www.wnba.com/asb on any wireless carrier and on the WNBA Center Court which is presented by the Boost Mobile App. Voting will end at midnight eastern time on July 14.
