Mario Chalmers is the starting point guard of the NBA Champion Miami Heat. But it's much more complex than that.

After wrapping up an interview with HEATV China during the 2012 Heat Media Day event held the day before training camp started, Dwyane Wade was given a fortune cookie.

"When angry count to ten before you speak," read Wade. "If very angry, count to one hundred."

Wade smiled as he scanned the main floor of AmericanAirlines Arena and found Chalmers who just happened to be standing nearby. He then walked over and threw his arms around his backcourt teammate and joked he'd attempt to use this piece of wisdom for the next season when dealing with playing the young man from Alaska. Chalmers couldn't help but take it, as he's done many times playing with the Big 3 and taking heaps of "advice" on the very same floor that Media Day was taking place.

The fifth-year guard from Kansas is now firmly entrenched as the starter of the Heat, a title he tenuously held the first few years since being drafted in the second round. Chalmers has the uncanny ability to cause any Heat fan (or teammate) to curse and praise his name, often during the course of a single game, quarter or even possession. It's these rare qualities that make Chalmers one of the more fascinating players of his team to watch. Will he improve on his best shooting season of his career and build on his better traits to help the Heat defend their title? Or will he regress?
