Chalmers: “I Never Thought Anybody Would Want To Leave Miami For Cleveland”

Mario Chalmers

Mario Chalmers was often the on-court whipping boy of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh over the past few years, but the Miami Heat’s Big Three were always quick to dismiss those many disagreements as nothing more than typical familial strife.
