MIAMI (AP) - Mario Chalmers says he's already moved on to getting ready for next season, when he expects the Miami Heat will have more than a few challenges in the Eastern Conference.
The Heat point guard says that between Brooklyn, Chicago and Indiana, he thinks the East ``will be a beast'' every night this coming season.
Chalmers spoke Monday during a break from hosting his annual golf tournament in Kansas that serves as a fundraiser for breast cancer research and other charitable causes. He also recently held a basketball camp where he sponsored some at-risk children from the inner Kansas City area.
Chalmers will be entering his sixth NBA season, all with the Heat.
