Scouting Report on Mario Chalmers

by Jerry Meyer - 08/24/2004
Chalmers can both shoot it and pass it although his primary intention is to create a shot, which he is very good at doing. He can score from deep, at the basket, and anywhere between, but he does not get much lift on his outside jumper. He is also a very good defender on the ball and off the ball, specializing in getting steals with his long reach and quick hands. He has a good upside in that he will only get better as he gets stronger.

Jerry Meyer serves as a national scout and recruiting analyst for Rivals.com. He played at Lipscomb University where be became college basketball's all-time career assist leader. Meyer earned Mr. Basketball honors in the state of Tennessee as a high school junior and senior. He has served as an assistant coach at Vanderbilt and also co-authored the book, "Basketball Skills and Drills."
