Andre Iguodala reveals key to Heat’s great chemistry
For NBA veteran and former NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala, the chip on the shoulders of several Miami Heat players is the key to their unparalleled chemistry.
Iguodala single out Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson, and Jae Crowder, particularly their different personalities. But more than this, Iguodala knows that all of the Heat players have gone through so much in their lives that has made them ripe for this moment.

Analysts and broadcasters have continuously narrated the personal histories of the likes of Butler, Robinson, and Herro. Butler’s story perhaps the most known among NBA diehards.
He was the 30th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft which basically means that scouts saw potential in him but did not expect him to go far. Of course, there’s his infamous stint with the Minnesota Timberwolves which painted him as a toxic locker room presence. But as the years went by, people finally understood Butler as someone who simply wants to win.
Robinson, for his part, entered the league as an undrafted prospect in 2018. He started out in the G League then quickly made the Heat roster. He swiftly entered the radar as one of the best shooters in the league. In the 2019-20 season, he made a total of 270 3-pointers for third-most (tied with Damian Lillard).
And finally, there’s Herro, who’s oozing confidence has wowed teammates and foes alike. But before entering the NBA, Herro was showered with hate when he de-committed from Wisconsin (his hometown) to play for the University of Kentucky.
