Chris Bosh Explains Why He Yelled at Mario Chalmers in Game 3

Joakim Noah got a huge kick out of watching Chris Bosh yell at Mario Chalmers in Game 3. According to Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra, those types of on-the-court conversations—which have become the norm, in good and bad times, between Chalmers and his much more heralded teammates—are good for his team. Per the Sun-Sentinel: “‘Those,’ coach Erik Spoelstra said Sunday, ‘are called, ‘Miami Heat huddles,’ ‘Miami Heat exchanges,’ ‘Miami Heat dialogue.’ I get much more concerned when our dialogue is not passionate. That was a healthy conversation that was very demonstrative and animated,’ Spoelstra said. ‘But it was very specific and detailed to our spacing. I actually very much like that dialogue.’ The dialogue was followed up by a 34-point Heat fourth quarter. ‘We had a specific game plan that we talked about,’ Bosh explained. ‘I made a play and he didn’t follow that game plan. I was going to be in a specific place and he thought I was going to be in another place. And I had to talk about it. We got over it. We talked about it. And we ironed it out and that was it after that.’ Typically, LeBron James or Dwyane Wade are the ones admonishing Chalmers. But Bosh thought it was a moment that required immediate attention. ‘We were in a desperate situation and that’s how bad I want to win the game,’ Bosh said. ‘But after that, we leave it where it is and we move on. It’s the playoffs and when you’re in a must-win situation, the attitude is always going to be a little bit different than the regular season.’ As with the moments with James and Wade that have become less frequent, Chalmers said he did not take umbrage. ‘That was a conversation Chris and I were having and we were trying to figure out something,’ he said. ‘I wasn’t worried about what Joakim was doing.’”

    the thing about chalmers is that believes hes part of the miami big dogs, almost with a irreplaceable vibe when in reality norris cole is out ballling him so much more

    Norris Cole is just on fire right now.
    Chalmers was big for them during the 27 win streak and last years finals.


    cole hit 8 of 8 from deep this series. His D on nate has been amazing as well.

  • airs

    is it because he’s Mario Chalmers? cuz i totally understand

  • joe

    Mario thinks he is one of the best. That’s why he performs well in clutch situations. He can take the yelling, because in his mind they are peers. It’s hilariously awesome. The guy has 300 pound brass balls.

  • roscoe

    put the heat cool aid down.

  • jonathanhakim

    Michael Jordan is a horrendous evaluater of talent, as has been significantly proven.

  • Lloyd

    Real talk, it’s ideal to be on the Heat for championship reasons, but it seems like Rio has an ego. Dudes who have big egos like that can only take being treated like crap for so long. I can see him leaving Miami if this kind of stuff keeps going down and if he can get a bigger pay cheque/role on another team.
