Tyler Herro wants to show the Heat that he can matter
Barring a last-minute surprise, Tyler Herro will start the season in Miami after a summer filled with transfer rumors and trade offers. Instead of feeling resentful toward management for being positioned as a potential bargaining chip, the striker has turned the final few months of his career into motivation.
Herro is determined to show the Heat that keeping him on the team was the best possible decision. The desire for vindication has been accompanied by a high volume of scoring, as evidenced by the 22 points he scored against Charlotte or the 30 points he scored in Sunday’s win over Memphis.
“I am always ambitious,” Herro told the media. Miami Herald. “I’m driven by motivation, and that’s how I am. Always, every day. This year I don’t even consider it revenge or recovery. “It’s just a year to be myself, have fun and enjoy what I love to do, which is play basketball.”
After the Heat were unable to sign any superstar or elite player in the NBA, Herro will have great value on the team, especially in the offensive department. “Now he’s very effective,” teammate Bam Adebayo said. “His movements, his dribbles…he tries to do the right thing. He goes straight to areas where he knows he can score. He goes straight to his shooting areas.
