Tyler Herro’s awesome gift to rapper Jack Harlow, who named song after Miami star
The trend of NBA players giving game-worn jerseys to musicians continues, as Miami Heat sharpshooter Tyler Herro turned over his jersey to Jack Harlow. This was done after Miami’s win over the hometown New York Knicks, 98-88, on Monday.

Harlow released the song “Tyler Herro” last year and it has over 43 million views on his official YouTube channel. If Harlow sounds familiar to Heat fans and NBA fans, it is probably because he was a part of the All-Star festivities, particularly the 2v2 celebrity game.
Heat fans might know that the duo of Harlow and Quavo came away with the win over 2 Chainz and Lil Baby. It must be noted though that Quavo did the heavy lifting as he put up 17 points, 14 rebounds, and four blocks in a format where the first team to reach 21 won.
The winning team gets to select which HBCU will be the recipient of a $500,000 donation, which in this case was to Kentucky State University, and Simmons College of Kentucky. Harlow was born in Kentucky, where Herro played college basketball before being taken by the Heat in the draft.
Herro had a good outing in total against the Knicks on Monday: He had 18 points, three boards, four dimes, and a steal while going 44.4% from deep for the Heat. However, he did shoot 37.5% from the field. He has been one of the more promising players in the 2019 draft class that was headlined by Zion Williamson and Ja Morant.
Herro is clearly in the Heat’s plans moving forward as even rumors of him during the trade deadline did not pick up much steam.
With a 23-24 record, Miami is in the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference. Should the Heat avoid sustaining any major injuries in the remaining weeks of the regular season, they are very likely to be in the playoffs and might even score some upsets again.
