Heat’s Tyler Herro rips haters with IG post headed to Orlando ‘bubble’


Before heading to the Orlando bubble location for the 2019-20 season restart, Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro dropped the bomb on some of his haters with an Instagram post.

Herro had a firm message to his critics before the Heat headed to Orlando. He implied that during the three-month hiatus, he put in the work while his critics stayed at home and practically did nothing.

“I turned into a beast, while you stayed the same, I guess we ain’t the same.”

Tyler Herro, the 13th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, is considered among the top players of his decorated batch. In fact, he was initially in the race for top rookie honors. However, injuries prevented him from showcasing his skills. He missed five weeks (18 games) due to an injured ankle.

In 47 games (six starts), Herro averaged 12.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.9 assists across 27.2 minutes. He also shot 41.4 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from deep — a pretty impressive clip especially since he’s a rookie.

In a recent interview, Herro claimed that he’s molding his game after Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson and NBA legend Ray Allen. He particularly admires their catch-and-shoot proficiency.

“You know, Klay and Ray, they do the catch-and-shoot very well,” Herro said, per Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports. “So that’s the thing that I pay attention to when I’m watching them. But every player that I watch, or the coaches have me watch, I can dissect something new or something different from their game to try to add it to mine.”

In the NBA season restart, the Heat will first face off against the Denver Nuggets on August 1, followed by the Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns, and the Indiana Pacers.
