Mario Chalmers has organized an exhibition basketball game to be played in his native Anchorage, Alaska, on Dec. In other words, MARIO CHALMERS has organized, arguably, the most logistically challenging exhibition game of this long offseason.

Riley has always had a clear affinity for the seasoned veteran versus the inexperienced rookie.
