26. Mario Chalmers, Miami Heat
2011-2012 Stats: 9.8 PPG 2.7 RPG 3.5 APG 1.5 SPG
2012-2013 Salary: $4 million
Chalmers put the clamps on Lin along with the entire Heat team, holding Jeremy to eight points during their February 23 matchup. Mario's defense also caused most of Lin's eight turnovers that night. He's not a pure point, but on a team with LeBron James and D-Wade, Mario just has to do what he does best and that's defend and hit the open three. So far, he has been doing a good job, often coming up big like he did in Game 4 of last year's Finals when he dropped 25 in a win. Top five though? FOH.
