      This is funny.

      Mario Chalmers: “Rondo’s not the best [PG in the NBA] but he’s in the top five. There are a lot of great point guards in the league, Deron Williams, Chris Paul and Steve Nash. There are a lot of great guards in the NBA so for him to say he’s the best is a pretty bold statement. I’d say that I am in the front end of the top 10.”

      You know it’s a slow NBA news day when the only article Mike posts is “Elizabeth Cambage will not return to Tulsa Shock”

      Yawn, wake me up when training camp starts.

      Chalmers is actually pretty underrated, especially considering his role on the Heat, but he doesn’t crack the top 15 lol

      I agree it’s unfair when people disparage Chalmers’ game as just getting the leftovers and opportunities made available by Lebron and James being on the court. I’m more amused by his statement than making fun of him; many players prolly think their the absolute shit but don’t say it publicly.
      Maybe I’d feel differently if I had watched more of pre-injury CP3 play, but for me Rondo is the most exciting PG to watch, because of his unusual athletic gifts and how he can make a play materialize nearly instantly on every possession.

      Mario Chalmers should thank God everyday he plays on the Heat. Nobody would put him in the top 10 PGs even by mistake. When starting that discussion, here are some names that come to mind (in no particular order):

      CP3
      Rondo
      DWill
      Nash
      Parker
      Westbrook
      Rose
      Irvin
      Curry
      Jennings
      Lawson

      That’s 11 names before I even think of including Chalmers. Even then, I’d have to consider him in this group:

      Rubio
      Lin
      Dragic
      Wall
      Nelson
      Holiday
      Hill
      Teague
      Conley
      Calderon

      And there’s no guarantee that he is at the top of that group.
