Mario Chalmers is swapping jerseys in 2021, moving from the 3 Headed Monsters’ roster to 3’s Company, where he will join the team as co-captain.
Chalmers was the 22nd overall pick in the 2019 BIG3 draft. In his rookie season with the 3 Headed Monsters, he tied for second in most 4-pointers made and was among four players in the league to make more than one 4-point shot. Chalmers also led the 3 Headed Monsters in assists per turnovers with a ratio of 2.6.
Chalmers will forever be a part of the University of Kansas’ prestigious basketball lore. In the 2008 NCAA Championship, Chalmers hit the game-tying three against Memphis, sending the game into overtime.
Kansas went on to win the Championship, and Chalmers was named Most Outstanding Player of the tournament.
In his rookie year with the Miami Heat, Chalmers led all rookies in steals, averaging two a game, and set a franchise record for steals in a game with nine. That season Chalmers was named All-Rookie Second Team. The guard went on to play 7 seasons with the Heat, winning two NBA titles. Since he left the NBA, Chalmers has played overseas for Virtus Bologna.
