Miami Heat youngster Tyler Herro recently called out several ESPN analysts who questioned his effort last season.
Herro has been at the center of many NBA debates over the past year. After an outstanding rookie campaign, he showed some signs of regression during the 2020-21 season.
Herro averaged 15.1 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game in his sophomore campaign. He made 43.9 percent of his shots from the field and 36.0 percent of his shots from 3-point land.
Young players typically make a big jump between their first and second seasons, but Herro’s growth largely remained the same.
Some folks have speculated about Herro’s future in Miami, though it does not seem like a trade is in the works right now. He has been very outspoken about his desire to stay with the team.
The Heat have had a wild offseason so far. Most notably, the team added star point guard Kyle Lowry in a sign-and-trade deal. The 2021-22 season is shaping up to be an exciting one for Miami.
