Miami Heat and Erik Spoelstra Playing a Deadly Game With Mario Chalmers

The Miami Heat organization and its head coach Erik Spoelstra is playing a deadly game with its point guard position. It is a situation that may very well come back to bite them in their rear end.

In the previous two season Chalmers had opened the season as the Heat’s starter at the point position. He lost his starting job last season not because of his play, but because he showed up late to a shoot around for a December game against Toronto.

Spoelstra would lend these comments on the matter, "Mario was late for shoot-around. My point guard is going to be the example to the team. But we're moving on. It was a one-time deal."

Chalmers would even play more minutes then Carlos Arroyo that game and finished with eight assist and one turnover. Arroyo would finish with three assist while playing six fewer minutes than Chalmers.

The move was perceived as just being a one game affair as Chalmers had clearly out played Arroyo for the duration of the season at that point. However, Chalmers would remain on the bench for the remainder of the season.
