WNBA All-Star Game
The Women's National Basketball Association All-Star Game is a basketball friendship game of the best and most popular players in the North American professional league Women's National Basketball Association . It takes place after half of the regular season games have been played.
Like the NBA All-Star Game , the competition mode was changed in 2018. Instead of representatives from the two conferences, two teams, elected by the two players with the most votes, have since competed against each other. The fans (40%), the players and head coach of the WNBA and representatives of the media (20% each) are entitled to vote.
Previously, the first five players per team to open the game had been chosen by the fans. The remaining players per team were selected by the coaches of the two conferences.
Before the actual All-Star Game, certain competitions take place in which the various skills of the players present are demonstrated.
