The Miami Heat have enough talent to go around with two-time MVP LeBron James at small forward, All-Star regular Chris Bosh, and of course former NBA Final’s MVP Dwyane Wade. With Joel Anthony at the five spot, the Heat probably won’t get much scoring, but they will have a hard nosed defender who has established himself as a quality shot blocker at three per 36 minutes last season.

There is only one position on the court that has been criticized as the team’s weakest link and that is the point guard spot where Mario Chalmers has been listed as the starter. Carlos Arroyo, Eddie House, Patrick Beverley and Kenny Hasbrouck are the listed back-up’s. There has been talk of James’ possibly starting at point and Mike Miller taking over at small forward in his place. Still, with no confirmation of that happening at the moment, we will act as if Chalmers will be the starter come October 26.

    I don’t know if Mario can be the next Rondo, because Rondo has turned Boston’s Big 3 into the Big 4. Still Chalmers can be a Derek Fisher or Ron Harper like point guard on a championship team. He has the skills to be much better then he showed last year and there is def a reason why Riley and the Heat chose to keep him on board.

    naw chalmers will get better playin with them and he can shoot the ball well but to go as far as the next rondo? idk bout all that. rondo has a style of playin the point like nobody in the nba. he sees the floor better than anyone in the league and he can anticipate wat someone is goin to do like hes already seen it. chalmers just isnt that same guy rondos got more talent, hell be good but i think eddie house will have to be the point gaurd to really step up. dont really matter though, i could run point and the heat would still be baller hahaha
