With the announcement of the All Star reserves scheduled for Thursday, today is a Theme Day around the NBA blogs of SB Nation. Everyone is posting on the All Star theme, with a particular emphasis on making the case for All Star reserves. The Clippers already have two starters in the game, and they happen to be the team's two best players, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. But the organization is also promoting a third All Star selection: super sub Jamal Crawford.

This post isn't going to be a cliff hanger. I'll end the suspense now. Jamal Crawford is not going to be selected as an All Star reserve. However, having said that, I will admit that he is much closer to being in the conversation than I at first suspected.
