News On The Horizon 5/1/2013

Press Row’s Not Safe Podcast: Jimmy Lemke: 4/29--Press Row's Not Safe
I’ve noticed a lot of Oakland fans still skeptical about the news that the Golden Grizzlies will be jumping to the Horizon League in the immediate future.’s Jimmy Lemke, who has confirmed the news again and also broke other re-alignment news regarding the conference, joined me for a podcast today to relieve fans of their curiosity.

We also discussed the strengths of some of the other Horizon League sports as it pertains to Oakland, whether the jump will happen for the 2013-2014 academic year or not, and what other schools might the league be looking to add (an addition of Oakland puts the league at nine).

Consistency issues a thing of the past for Mario Chalmers--South Florida Sun Sentinel
"If you're going to talk about the Heat, you're always going to talk about the Big Three," Chalmers said. "What we do, me, UD [Udonis Haslem], [Norris] Cole and everybody else, we just fly under the radar and do what we can for the team."
The maturation in Chalmers is shown in his reaction to second-year guard Norris Cole's emergence in the first round against the Milwaukee Bucks. Cole played well enough to earn most of the fourth-quarter minutes.

The old Chalmers might have taken it as a threat to his playing time. The new Chalmers looks at it as preparing Cole if the team needs him during the playoff run.

"It's not motivation to me," Chalmers said. "I'm motivated through myself. It's a collective thing. It's all about the team. If [Cole] is playing good, that makes our team better. There's no pressure on me. You know me, I never show it even if I'm under pressure. I'm excited that he's playing good."

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said he will base the point guard minutes in the second round on a game-by-game basis. Having options is the reason they drafted Cole, adding him as a complement to Chalmers.
