Here are two things you definitely know about Mario Chalmers regarding this season’s playoffs: 1) he had an amazing Game 4 that will definitely get a featured moment on a championship DVD if the Heat win the title and 2) everybody on the Heat yells at him all the time. Even when he’s not the one actively messing up, if he’s involved in a busted play, he’s the guy that gets screamed at. There are GIFs to prove it and GIFs don’t lie.

It happens so often, in fact, that ESPN did a whole article explaining the various reasons why all the Heat yell at him for everything. Whether it be because they think he doesn’t listen, that he thinks he’s a lot better than he really is or just because everyone else is doing it, they all have their reasons and they’re all what you’d expect. But buried in the article is this little nugget about how LeBron deals with Mario Chalmers, which is sure to make you giggle.

Privately, LeBron jokingly mocks Chalmers for everything from his sneakers — Chalmers has a deal with Spalding, which is apparently making shoes now and not just basketballs (who knew?) — to his taste in food.

To be fair, Mario Chalmers does get paid to wear Spalding basketball shoes, which is admittedly hilarious since this isn’t the 1990′s. Having a Spalding shoe deal in 2012 is pretty funny, especially when you consider their other two endorsers are Jimmer Fredette and Chris Singleton. Plus, Alaskans legitimately eat reindeer sausage, which is, again, hilarious. Have to say LeBron James is really nailing his Mario Chalmers zings.

And hey, if Mario can take it like LeBron says he can — “Rio’s one of the toughest guys. He’s got a hard shell, so he doesn’t let much get to him.” — then the Heat might as well keep yelling at him and making fun of him. I don’t want to overstep my bounds, but I’d offer up his terrible goatee as the next target on LeBron’s list. Seems like there’s potential for some good material there, and if it’s going to lead to another 25-point outburst in the NBA Finals, then they should definitely mention that he looks like a 14-year-old who just found out about peach fuzz.

  1. I’m pretty good at reading lips, guys.

    GIF 1:
    Chris Bosh “Get off my back! How the f*** am I supposed to hit him!?”

    GIF 2:
    LeBron: “You don’t bullshit with me! You go get that something something off ”

    So in conclusion, Mario Chalmers is definitely the provacateur.

    • Impressive! Wish #2 was slower.

      • It is very easy to see why they yell at him………..they are jealous because he is a better and more popular player than them. Without Mario, these bozos would not have come anywhere close to the championship let alone win it.

    • I am legit impressed with your lip reading skills.

  2. Repeatedly making fun of someone or giving them a hard time is not cool. Lebron repeatedly doing it is not something that makes him look good… it makes Lebron look like a follower….sigh…

  3. one day Chalmers will lose his shit and everyone on that team would regret the times they have treaten him like that!

  4. I love that second GIF. After LeBron yells at him, it looks like the crowd cheers for the chewing out. LOL.

    • And if the crowd did that, they are idiot too. but I think the crowd was cheering for mario as he was pointing at the crowd to get them to cheer!!

  5. They are idiots………I personally think he’s better than all of them — as a person and basketball player. I mean it — Mario is a future All Star.

  6. I have seen these idiots…………yelling at him after they mess up the play themselves. bunch of losers.

  7. It is very easy to see why they yell at him………..they are jealous because he is a better and more popular player than them. Without Mario, these bozos would not have come anywhere close to the championship let alone win it.

  8. I just love the PGA
