On Thursday, the NBA released its final results for 2020 NBA All-Star starter voting. As expected, Bradley Beal finished ninth among Eastern Conference guards in fan returns, but this only counted toward half of his score. However, he ranked second among Eastern Conference guards in player voting, fifth in media voting and eighth overall once all scores were taken into account.

Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks and Kemba Walker of the Boston Celtics were the top two guards in the Eastern Conference after all returns were taken into account and will start in the All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 16 in Chicago.

Beal will still have a chance to make the All-Star Game as a reserve after the NBA’s head coaches make their picks. That announcement will take place on Thursday, Jan. 30.
