01:57 PM ET 10.24 | The days of middling NBA centers making the All-Star team because the league required it are now over. The NBA will revise its all-star ballot so that fans would vote for two guards and three frontcourt players rather than two guards, two forwards and one center, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge. The change was made because several teams now play with much smaller lineups than they did in the past.

Makes sense since there are only a handful of "legit" All-Star centers....

This means the center position has been deprecated from the game. The game is slowly transforming from a physical tactical game to a ballerina.

the AS game is for the NBA's 12 year old fans anyway- they don't want to see low post moves and defense- they want dunks and 3's....so this move makes sense

It's become flashy lights....
