The point guard rotation for the Heat is crystal-clear, with Mario Chalmers as the definite starter and Norris Cole as his backup.
Chalmers had arguably his best season as a pro in 2011-12, setting career bests in two areas the Heat needed him to: field goal percentage (44.8) and three-point percentage (38.8).
While the Heat would be more than pleased if Chalmers matched those percentages this season, they need even more for him to cut down on his turnovers (2.2 per game last season).
As for Cole, his rookie season was filled with ups and downs. He started off hot, highlighted by him scoring 20 points and coming up huge down the stretch against the Boston Celtics in just his second game.
But as the season went along, his deficiencies became clearer, such as his poor shooting and propensity to turn the ball over, and his role declined.
Still, at just 23 years old, Cole is very young and showed flashes in his rookie year of him being a solid-rotation player.
