1956 NBA ALL STAR FINAL BALLOT RESULTS -  6 JANUARY

1956 NBA All-Star Game

The rosters were chosen by sportwriters and sportcasters. Until 1973, each NBA team had to be represented with at least 1 players, and a maximum of 3 players.
Since 1975 the NBA All-Star selections have been left to the fans who vote to determine the starting fives. NBA coaches complete the roster.

* I can't find any source which confirms that Bob Pettit started the game. I'll take nba.com as the right one for the line-ups.

This ballot is uncompleted. It's really difficult to track this old info that is not available on Internet. If you have some data available that could help from magazines, newspapers, etc. please contact me
