Mario Chalmers invaded the airwaves during a post game interview following the Miami Heat’s 105-101 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers, leading the interviewer to throw in a subtle dig at Chalmers.
The Miami Heat finished up their regular season just one game out of the Eastern Conference, and yet given the opportunity of entering the top 10 of the upcoming draft. Their final win occurred against the rec-center All-Stars known as the Philadelphia 76ers, but despite the victory the Heat still made it into the top 10 of the draft.

In the victory, the Heat trotted out the starting lineup of Walker, James Ennis, Michael Beasley, Tyler Johnson and Zoran Dragic, and still found a way to wint he game. This allowed them to hold onto their first round pick that was set to be sent over to the Sixers, and gave Sixers
crazy basketball alchemist
general manager Sam Hinkie a few less believers.
Celebrating the victory at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Beasley took a break from disappointing the basketball world and gave an interview following the game. He was quickly and rudely interrupted by Mario Chalmers.
Oooh, that must sting.
This isn’t the first time Chalmers has been singled out during a celebration of the Heat’s success. He was dissed by executive order when the POTUS congratulated the Heat for their second championship victory.
Now, the yelling has just turned into gentle insults. Poor Rio just wanted to have a quiet night on the bench, just like he wanted to spend a quiet afternoon in the White House. Let Rio be the fragile wallflower he was meant to be.
