With the short season, All-Star voting has crept up on us faster than ever.
As a result, there are some names on the ballots that we would have never predicted to be on there at the beginning of the season.
Because some of these players have gotten off to good starts, they are presented with the opportunity to campaign and make a case for their spot on the All-Star team in February.
Voting ends on January 31, starters will be named on February 2 and reserves will be named February 9.
Try not to let your jaw drop as you click through the slideshow and see the name of some players you didn't even know saw the court.
There will not be a team in the NBA that has played more than 20 games by the time the All-Star game comes around, so don't be surprised if you see some players make their first appearance in the All-Star game this year.
