After a hard-fought playoff run, the Miami Heat are the latest team to enter the 2022 NBA offseason. They were eliminated after falling to the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Now, many are criticizing the team for falling just short of the NBA Finals for the second year in a row. Tyler Herro discussed his experience throughout the regular and postseason during his media availability on Tuesday. He acknowledged critics, reminding them that he is one of the younger players in the league.

Five Reasons Sports tweeted Herro's early offseason quote.

“First of all, this season was good, or great, as far as the experiences,” Herro said. “The playoffs were kind of a weird ride. But it was a learning curve for me. People forget I’m 22.”

The Sixth Man of the Year has a point. Herro was drafted in 2019 and just completed his second year in the league.

He has far less experience than other players. For example, Udonis Haslem is the oldest active player in the league at 41 years old. Other Heat players like Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry are also a lot more experienced, especially in the playoffs.

On the other side of things, other young players played extremely well in the postseason. For instance, Ja Morant is only a few months older than Herro. The Memphis Grizzlies star averaged 37.6 minutes a game in the postseason with 27.1 points, 9.8 assists, and eight rebounds. All of Morant's playoff statistics are roughly equal to or better than his regular season averages.

Meanwhile, Herro played an average of 25.4 minutes each game, putting up 12.6 points, 2.8 assists, and 3.9 rebounds. He averaged 20.7 points, four assists, and five rebounds in the regular season.
