NBA teams started campaigning for their players to get retweets on Twitter as each retweet counts as an early vote from the fans, per NBA.com.
Simmons Racking Up the Votes
With each retweet counting as a vote, Klutch Sports has garnered over 13,000 retweets when they mentioned Simmons with the official All-Star voting hashtag. To compare, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James is the first player to trail Simmons in votes from the Klutch account by roughly 10,000 votes.
While most of Simmons’ “Votes” are likely frustrated Philly fans that quote tweeted Klutch’s tweet, the numbers still count for the disgruntled guard.
