"Now is the time to support Alperen! Every vote we cast today could be as pivotal as a skillful 3-point shot," Askin emphasized, rallying enthusiasm for the campaign with the tweet, "All-Star is loading!@alperennsengun."

Fan votes play a crucial role in the selection of All-Star Game starters, accounting for 50% of the decision. The remaining 50% is equally divided between current NBA players and a media panel, each contributing 25%.

The All-Star Game is scheduled for February 18 at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. Fans can cast their votes through the NBA App and NBA.com until the January 20 deadline.
