Sign No.2 the Heat is secretly planning an assault on #SeventyTwo: The Mario Chalmers Message
At least half a dozen times this preseason I've listened to Erik Spoelstra utter some version of this message: Mario Chalmers is in the same shape right now as he was during the NBA Finals. What does this mean?
For the purposes of this blog, I take it to mean the Heat did everything it could this offseason to position itself for a run at 72 victories in the regular season. Yes, it's a contract year for Chalmers, but he has entered a contract year before with the Heat and never reported to training camp looking like this. Did Chalmers train this summer with Arctic commandos in Alaska?
