Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers is fresh from an NBA Championship. Perhaps that high has gone a little bit too far that the way he is becoming delusional in some way. Chalmers was recently interviewed and was asked about Rajon Rondo’s claim of being the best point guard in the sport. Chalmers chimed in and confidently said,
He’s not the best, but he’s in the top five. There are a lot of great point guards in the league: Deron Williams, Chris Paul and Steve Nash. There are a lot of great guards in the NBA so for him to say he’s the best is a pretty bold statement. I’d say that I am on the front end of of the top 10.
Wait a minute. Did he just say that? Well, as a matter of fact, Mario Chalmers did say that he is a top 10 guard in the league. His bold claim is either for comedic purposes because there is no other way this basketball player is serious. He plays on a team with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. All he has to do is stand around and wait for his “Big 3″ teammates to get bored and pass to him, in which he can pass the ball back and fulfill the duties of being a point guard.
Perhaps I should list some names of guards, in no particular order, that rank way before Mario Chalmers. A list that could go a little something like this:
- Derrick Rose
- Chris Paul
- Deron Williams
- Steve Nash
- Kyrie Irving
- Tony Parker
- Jason Kidd
- Rajon Rondo
- Russell Westbrook
- John Wall
- Brandon Jennings
- Stephen Curry
I will give props to Mario Chalmers for being the starting point guard of the most recent NBA champs, but that is about all that I am going to give him.
