The Miami Heat Are Concerned About Tyler Herro Acting Like A Celebrity


The Miami Heat enjoyed a ton of success last season when they surprisingly made their way into the NBA Finals. Two of the many heroes of the NBA playoffs for the Heat were Duncan Robinson and Tyler Herro.

Ever since the two players emerged as significant pieces to Miami’s success, Herro and Robinson found their names in a number of trade rumors since the start of the offseason until the recent trade deadline. However, no trade scenario involving the two players ever fell through.

In terms of Herro though, he’s been majorly struggling as of late and the Miami Heat are worried that his subpar performances go hand in hand with his emerging off-court celebrity status.

Heat beat writers Ethan Skolnick and Ira Winderman touched base on this topic on their “Inside the Paint” podcast:


Ira Winderman: Tyler Herro chose to become a celebrity,” “He chose to become something outside the game, as is his right. With his breakfast cereal, and his Tyler Tuesdays, and his Chipotle Bowl and that’s all well and good. But you know what? Other players when they see a player doing that before they’ve truly reached it. I don’t know if I want to say there’s a jealousy. … They sort of take a scant view of the guy and say, ‘Wait a minute buddy. You haven’t done anything yet

Ethan Skolnick: “Ultimately, the team starts to get a certain level of concern,” “In this particular case, the team has been concerned now for months.”
