"It's great to have Mario back," said Miami Heat president Pat Riley after the Heat re-signed point guard Mario Chalmers. The move made zero sense, though. Chalmers is Riley's new John Starks, and here are five reasons why.
LeBron James has returned home to Cleveland! Now Chalmers can return to being a mediocre player.
Chalmers has gotten into physical altercations on the court. A nuisance, Chalmers has even got into it with LeBron James. Really, who does Chalmers think he is?
Chalmers completely disappeared in the NBA Finals when his teammates needed just a little something from him. Eventually, he found his way to the bench. The Heat didn't bring back Mike Bibby after 2011, did they?
Chalmers is an old 28. Point guards don't last that long to begin with, so the Heat were crazy to believe there's still potential there.
Sure, the Heat probably weren't going to get Eric Bledsoe, but Isaiah Thomas could have been the new Tim Hardaway (the Heat legend, not the kid on the Knicks) in Miami. Instead, Riley stuck with Chalmers. Even Maurice Williams, who won't sign for much more than the minimum, would have been a way better fit than the terrible Chalmers.
