1966 NBA ALL STAR FINAL BALLOT RESULTS - 30 DECEMBER 1965

1966 NBA All-Star Game

The starting five and three bench players (one per position) were chosen by sportwriters and sportcasters. NBA coaches chose the rest of the bench players. 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.

* Red Auerbach (Eastern team coach) decided to include Wilt Chamberlain on the starting five instead of Bill Russell. Both players were unanimous choices by the sportwriters. The day before the game Auerbach joked about flipping a coin before the game to determine which of the superstars would be in the starting line-up... who knows? Maybe he did it.
