Heat’s Chris Bosh speaks out on young stars Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro
Another player that has caught Bosh’s eye is Tyler Herro — who’s only 20 years old. Entering Sunday’s Game 6 of the Finals, Herro is averaging 16.4 points on 43.8 percent shooting, 5.2 rebounds, and 3.7 assists. Furthermore, Herro has broken numerous records this postseason, including becoming the first rookie in NBA history to reach double-digits in 20 consecutive playoff games.
“This dude has no fear,” Bosh said. “He has no fear — good shot, bad shot. He’s not afraid of that moment. That’s what I love about him, and he has been doing that all season. You can tell he’s one of those guys that he feels that he belongs there. He got snubbed for the All-Rookie First-Team. He’s one of those guys that plays with a chip on his shoulder. He plays like he has something to prove. Sometimes you need that. That can be a lost art sometimes.”
The Heat certainly have a bright future with Herro and Adebayo on their roster. It’s a surprise they’re even in the Finals, considering that they were the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference. Nevertheless, they’re only two wins away from winning the 2020 NBA Finals.
