Kendrick Nunn Raves About Miami Heat Culture

2 Min Read

All offseason, Miami Heat fans had their eyes primarily fixed on newly acquired star Jimmy Butler and prized rookie Tyler Herro.

If Miami’s season opener against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night was any indication, fans’ eyes should have also been on undrafted rookie Kendrick Nunn.

Nunn exploded onto the scene during Summer League play, and his strong showings over the summer certainly continued into the regular season.

In his first meaningful NBA game, Nunn recorded 24 points, three assists, two rebounds and two steals.

Unsurprisingly, this diamond in the rough is already becoming a fan favorite in Miami. As it turns out, Nunn holds a similar affinity for the organization he is now suiting up for.

In an exclusive interview with, Nunn discussed what he loves most about the vaunted Heat culture.

“Just the mentality that goes into everything, hard work,” he said. “There’s great people in the organization. It’s a lot of love. The coaches are great. We work hard, do things the right way. I think we’re one of the best organizations in the league.”

So far, it seems the pairing of Nunn and the Heat is a match made in heaven.

With his NBA career off to a great start, it will be awesome to see what heights Nunn can reach in South Florida.
