Mario Chalmers is sometimes frustrating to watch, but he has a chance to be a part of a Big 4 in Miami if he continues to develop.
Mario Chalmers waved to the crowd in the third quarter of Miami's Game 5 win, but LeBron told him to stop.
This was after Chalmers' Game 4 of 25 points, including 12 in the fourth quarter, which included missing a few open shots early.
Chalmers' inconsistency and lack of control may finally disappear this offseason, as he was pushed hard by rookie Norris Cole early this season.
A full offseason as the No.1 point guard, along with a championship ring, will give him the confidence to play his game without worrying about playoff time.
Though he may make some mistakes from trying too hard, Chalmers appears to have the full confidence from the rest of the veterans and the Big Three. Cole hit arguably the two biggest shots of Game 4 with two quick three-pointers that helped lead a 19-2 rally for Miami to tie Oklahoma City after a quick deficit.
Both guys are very good defenders with underrated shooting abilities and have a lot of room to develop. While neither is depended on as a pure point guard, they both can set the offense.
Chalmers has the ability to add to the Heat's Big Three as a fourth scorer in a similar way to Rajon Rondo did for Boston's Big Three.
Cole and Chalmers could, and should, be the best young point guard combination in the NBA next season. Their now more consistent abilities will give Miami it's fourth option on offense.
With a deep draft this year, if Miami can get another player like Cole or have a talented player like Jared Sullinger, Tony Wroten, Draymond Green or Royce White drop to them, Miami's window could possibly increase for a year or two while also making Miami a little younger and more athletic.
