He is a fantastic college guard. Hes a good shooter, good ball handler, and he is a flat out thief on defense. That said, he won't be a good pro IMO. He is known as a great defender but its more of him attacking the passing lanes than his on ball defense skills. At his size (6-1') he has to prove he can be a PG and not a 2 guard that he plays now. Last year he started out at PG and he was awful. His assist/TO ratio was horrible and he is much more comfortable playing off the ball. He will get drafted at some point, probably 2nd round of his senior year but I can't imagine him contributing to any NBA team, unless he improves his PG skills over the next two years.

I agree with everything King said. That's a pretty spot-on evaluation of Chalmers.

You've obviously never seen a game in Allen Fieldhouse. Lawrence, Ks is a great college town. The basketball players are worshipped, and the university's basketball program has a great deal of tradition. Have you seen a Kansas game this year? Who wouldn't wanna play on this team?
