Mario Chalmers Makes People Magazine's 'Sexy' Issue (PHOTOS)

People magazine's highly anticipated Sexiest Man Alive issue went online Wednesday -- and Miami Heat's favorite little brother made the cut.

Representing his home state of Alaska, point guard Mario Chalmers made the mag's "United States of Sexy" series, in which he points out there's more to The Last Frontier than meets the eye.

(Lest the Heat win everything this year, Channing Tatum of "Magic Mike" and "21 Jump Street" fame got the top spot of Sexiest Man Alive.)

Chalmers, 26, played basketball through his local YMCA and youth leagues before making the varsity team in high school. Now, he's an NBA champion -- the first in Alaska -- and officially one of the most attractive!
