“I know I’ll be on a team next year. I’m not worried about that part,” Chalmers said. “I am still going, waiting on a contract right now. I’m right here, handling my event this time of year. I’ll figure my next move after that. It’s just a matter of time. They (NBA teams) are getting all the young guys, all the big free agents out of the way now. I’m just waiting my turn.”
Since the end of that 2017-18 campaign, one in which he averaged 21.5 minutes per game, the 6-foot-2, 190-pound Chalmers has been competing in pro-am leagues in both Miami and Houston. The Grizzlies recently renounced his rights, meaning he is a free agent. “I’m very proud. A lot of people don’t really come back from that injury,” Chalmers said Friday at Lawrence’s Schwegler Elementary School where his Mario V. Chalmers Foundation sponsored a “field day” for the Boys and Girls Club of Lawrence.
Mario Chalmers: “Now it (recovering from Achilles tear) is more common. More people are doing it now. They can look at me for inspiration, see how I came back, look at Kobe (Bryant), how he came back. Players are proving they can come back from that injury.”
Gustavo Zermeno, a lifelong Lakers fan who put up the mural, said its message was that James was coming to the Lakers with respect and understanding of the legends he is following. With the image of James looking up to former Lakers stars, Zermeno hoped the message of the art would keep vandals and haters from hitting it.
“I am surprised,” Zermeno told ESPN about his art being vandalized. “This is the most positive move for the Lakers in the past five or six years. It is really a surprise that people are upset about LeBron. I don’t understand it. [The message of the mural was to] just show LeBron paying homage to not only past Lakers legends but the whole organization. Him showing up to the Lakers and knowing he has some big shoes to fill.””
