Well at least the Heat aren't lacking in confidence this week.  After Bosh and his (pretty realistic) assertion that he's a Hall of Famer, Mario Chalmers came out today to say that he's a top 10 point guard in the league.  "In the middle part" of the top 10.  Chalmers came through with some important, big games in the Heats' run to the title last year, but come on.  You reckon you're the 5th or 6th best PG?  Allow me to list (in no particular order) point guards you would take over Chalmers:
  • Chris Paul
  • Derrick Rose
  • Jrue Holiday
  • Kyrie Irving
  • Rajon Rondo
  • Russell Westbrook
  • Steph Curry
  • Steve Nash
  • Ricky Rubio
  • Deron Williams
  • Ty Lawson
  • Eric Bledsoe
  • Tony Parker
  • Jose Calderon
  • Greivis Vasquez
  • Damian Lillard
  • Eric Gordon
So I think Chalmers safely falls outside of the top 10.  He isn't a bad player, and obviously isn't going to shine on a team like that.  He has a role and he fills it.  I guess it's good that he's confident, but sometimes you need to take a realistic look at things.
