    NBA ALL STAR VOTING RESULTS 1978 – ATLANTA

    • Randy Smith (Buf), Walter Davis (Pho) and Bob Lanier (Det) played as reserves despite not being listed in the Top 10/Top 5 voting for their positions.
    • John Havlicek started the game because Pete Maravich was injured.
    • Since 1975, the NBA All-Star selections have been left to the fans who vote to determine the starting five for each team. NBA coaches complete the rosters.
    • Until 1974, the starters per team and three bench players were chosen by sport writers and sport casters.
    • Until 1973, each NBA team had to be represented with at least 1 player and a maximum of 3 players.
