There are a lot of other ways to vote. Go here if you want to learn more. They have other things I’ve never heard of before. QO? Weibo? What are these things?

Is Book an All-Star? He’s averaging career highs in basically everything including 24.3 points per game. I’d urge you to vote for him whether or not you actually think he’s deserving. Let’s win something.

#BookEm Merry Christmas.
