Video: Jack Harlow releases ‘Tyler Herro’ in honor of Heat guard
It is not uncommon to hear rappers and famous musicians name-drop famous athletes in their songs. After all, there is a clear intersection between sports and music culture. Still, Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro might not have expected to have a song named after him just one year into his NBA career.
Rapper and Kentucky native Jack Harlow honored Herro on Thursday by dropping a title track with Herro’s name. Check it out:

Tyler Herro emerged as a steady offensive option and late-game playmaker for the Heat throughout the regular season. He elevated his game to another level in the playoffs.
The former Kentucky Wildcat averaged 16.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.7 assists during Miami’s run to the NBA Finals, routinely dazzling with his shotmaking and knack for hitting clutch shots. His biggest moment came when he scored 37 points against the Boston Celtics in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Plus, who can forget his snarl in the Game 3 win over the Los Angeles Lakers in the NBA Finals?
It is possible another star has been birthed in South Beach, from both a cultural and basketball standpoint. Tyler Herro is just getting started.
