Mario Chalmers has been a productive NBA point guard for the Miami Heat since entering the league in 2008. He is best known for his game-tying three point dagger against Memphis in the 2008 NCAA National Title Game. He has his nights where he puts up twenty but has more nights where he just disappears altogether. However, even on those twenty-point nights you wouldn’t say Mario is a top ten point guard.

In an interview with Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida, Chalmers was asked where he ranks himself among point guards in the NBA. He told Tomasson, “I’d say top 10…I’m not in the lower part (of the top 10), I’m in the middle part. I just have confidence in myself. I think I can compete with the best of them.”
Unfortunately for Chalmers, confidence isn’t weighed when ranking the best point guards. This season, his fifth, proves he is definitely in the bottom 10 of starting NBA point guards. He is averaging just 7.7 points and 3.4 assists in 26 minutes a game. Put it this way, if you are losing significant minutes to Norris Cole, then you are not a top ten point guard.
Mario Chalmers joins Joe Flacco and many others in the club of athletes who think they are much better than they truly are.

[Mario Chalmers] believes he belongs in a listing of the top point guards in the NBA.
“I’d say top 10,’’ the Miami Heat fifth-year man said of where he ranks. “I’m not in the lower part (of the top 10), I’m in the middle part. I just have confidence in myself. I think I can compete with the best of them.’’
All of this is coming from a guy averaging 7.7 points and...
When a player receives a 10-day contract from an NBA team, they generally want to get on the floor as much as possible and prove that they are worth signing for the rest of the season. This is true of Jarvis Varnado, but it appears his lack of playing time has not discouraged the Miami Heat. They are working on a contract to sign Varnado for the remainder of the season.According...
Are you such a huge fan of Dwyane Wade that you are willing to drop $25,000 on his autographed 2005 Range Rover? Yes? That must be a miserable life. However, it’s your lucky day. Some guy is selling Wade’s old ride, but it comes with a very cool piece of memorabilia.
Wade autographed the driver’s side visor. Are you a little fat and have been striking out with the ladies...
Joe Johnson puts Chris Bosh on skates as he hits him with a nasty crossover and drills the mid-ranger:
The 2012 Miami Heat team was honored today by President Barack Obama at the White House and there were plenty of great photos taken, but one in particular took the cake. Chris Bosh, who is known to photobomb from time to time took the opportunity to unleash one of his most daring attempts to date. Check out the absolutely brilliant photo featuring LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and...
LeBron James was finally able to get the monkey off his back last year by winning an NBA championship with the Miami Heat. He will never silence all of his critics, but there is much less to rag on LeBron for now than there was seven months ago. However, Brooklyn Nets forward Reggie Evans still feels that LeBron has yet to accomplish much. Why? Because of the lockout. “It doesn’t...
After LeBron James went out with a whimper in the 2011 NBA Finals against the Dallas Mavericks, the media launched another spring time assault on the “disappearance” of King James. That 2010-11 season was the first of the Big Three era in South Beach, yet James, who was in his eighth season, had lost his second Finals series, and was being questioned for the second playoffs in...

Tweet The Miami Heat visited the White House on Monday to be honored by President Barack Obama after winning the 2011-2012 NBA Championship. Winning that championship silenced many of LeBron James’ critics and, at least somewhat, validated much of his career. Upon meeting the President though, LeBron seemed to still be basking in the championship [...]
