The intersection of sports and pop culture is unavoidable, but that doesn't mean the collision of those two worlds isn't without its surprises. According to Chris Chase of USA Today, the Heat's Mario Chalmers -- best known for his on-ball defense, three-point shooting and willingness to bear LeBron James and Dwyane Wade relentlessly yelling in his face -- has been named one of People magazine's sexiest men alive.

Kudos to Chalmers. It's not at all uncommon for athletes to find spots on People's list, but it's fairly rare for a non-star (in the non-Luke Walton division) to crash the party. I'll leave it to others to debate Chalmers' merits, but for now, I suppose this will have to be an adequate consolatory superlative for Chalmers, who once foolishly claimed to be one of the NBA's five best point guards. In his next round of outlandish declarations, Chalmers can instead assert -- with far greater technical accuracy -- to be one of the sexiest men alive. Enjoy the bragging rights, Mario.
