Miami Heat star Tyler Herro recently fielded media questions at NBA 2K23’s House of Greatness in Las Vegas. Herro answered a number of questions in reference to the new NBA 2K game, his clothing and musical preferences, and other entertainment-related inquiries. However, Herro also discussed what the next step is in his NBA career.
He first doubled down on his desire to join Miami’s starting lineup and then set forth an even bigger goal.
“I’m trying to be a starter in this league and then be an All-Star one day, so that’s the next step.”
Herro then commented on the potential fit in the Heat’s starting lineup with Jimmy Butler.
“I think it will look great. We will see what happens in training camp.”

Tyler Herro previously stated that he wants to be in the Heat’s starting lineup.
The reigning Sixth Man of the Year has steadily improved each season during his three-year career. Herro averaged 13.5 points in his rookie campaign, 15 points in his second year, and is fresh off of a 2021-2022 season that saw him post 20.7 points per game. Herro shot 40 percent from beyond the arc and 45 percent from the field as well. He was undeniably a key contributor for the team all season long.
But he clearly has bigger aspirations. Tyler Herro is ready to become a full-time NBA starter and an All-Star someday.
He is already a big name and marketable personality in the league. But he kept it humble when I asked him about becoming one of the faces of the NBA.
“It is what it is,” Herro said. “I’m just happy to be here man that’s all.”
