No one was harder on himself throughout last postseason than Mario Chalmers. Every interview, he talked about how he was disappointed in his play. His shooting. His defense. He was down on his entire game. A month later, Chalmers is back to his confident self. He has lots of reason to smile, mostly because the Heat re-signed him after many felt he was no longer wanted. So how he played in the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs is a thing of the past. "I'm past the Finals," Chalmers said, speaking at his basketball camp at Miami-Dade Boys & Girls Club. "Over and done with." Chalmers has moved on from his nightmarish performance in the Finals. He averaged just 4.4 points and shot 33 percent in the Heat's 4-1 series loss, ending the Big Three era. The low point came when Chalmers was benched in Game 5, with coach Erik Spoelstra going without a point guard in the starting lineup.
