Tyler Herro thinks he’s an NBA superstar - can he back it up with his game?

Tyler-Herro

When listing the future superstars of the NBA, Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro thinks you shouldn't leave him out. Does he have the game to back up his claims? What does he need to do to get to the next level?

Herro thinks he’s on par with Doncic, Young, Morant

Herro thinks he’s on the same level with Luka Doncic, Trae Young, and Ja Morant. He’s a decent player, but Tyler is not on that level yet. Doncic is a 2-time First-Team All-NBA member, while Young is the future of the Atlanta Hawks who came close to making the Finals. Herro’s advantage is he has played on the grandest stage under the brightest lights. However, his performances dipped, and to make it to the next level, he knows he needs to work harder.

“I feel like I’m in the same conversation as those guys, the young guys coming up in the league who can be All-Stars, superstars one day. You know, Luka [Doncic], Trae [Young], Ja [Morant], those guys like that. I feel like my name should be in that category, too. I’ll put the work in and continue to get better every single day.”

Tyler does not lack confidence, which is good news for the Heat fans. Herro knows he might not be on that level, yet, but he is willing to put in the work to get there. The sweet-shooting guard averaged 15.1 points in the regular season but only tallied 9.3 points in the postseason. Call it a learning curve or a sophomore slump as an excuse, but the fans knew if the Miami Heat were to go deeper in the playoffs, they need Tyler Herro to have a breakout year. 

What Tyler Herro needs to improve on?

His role on the roster is a floor spacer as the 4th or 5th options on offense behind Jimmy Butler, Kyle Lowry, Bam Adebayo. He is expected to fill in the spots of Goran Dragic and Kendrick Nunn, who got traded in the offseason. Herro's game is similar to Joe Harris, but he needs to become the Klay Thompson type. Being a two-way player will give Coach Erik Spoelstra plenty of defense on the wing position. Tyler can also lead the bench and give meaningful minutes while the starters are resting, as noted by Sideline Sources

Herro needs to bulk up to get that confidence to attack the basket and score despite the contacts and bumps against bigger defenders. He is quick and long and can take advantage of smaller defenders or slower forwards on the perimeter. Right now, what he can do best are outside sniping and instant offense. If Herro can do it more consistently and in the postseason, the best is yet to come for him and the Miami Heat.
