An NBA player with the Miami Heat, Tyler Herro is an American professional basketballer (NBA). He was a member of the Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball team for a year and played college basketball. NBA All-Rookie Second Team honors were bestowed to him in 2020 following his selection by the Miami Heat in the first round of the 2019 NBA draught.
Tyler Herro was the only player on the Kentucky Wildcats to start in all 37 games. He averaged 14.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists. On Feb 27, 2019, he scored a career-high 29 points and helped the Wildcats beat the Arkansas Razorbacks 70–66. He made 9 of 10 field goals and all 6 free throws.
Herro has won many awards, including being named to the All-Freshman First Team by Basketball Times and the SEC Rookie of the Year by Associated Press. On April 12, 2019, Herro announced that he would be entering the 2019 NBA draught. He gave up his last three years of university eligibility and hired an agent. Most mock draughts had him going in the middle of the first round.
Miami Heat picked Tyler Herro in the NBA draught with the 13th pick on June 20, 2019. Among the 2019 draught class, Herro was chosen as the top shooter by his teammates as their favorite rookie. Herro was signed by the Heat on July 10, 2019.
It was on October 23, 2019, that Herro made his NBA debut, beginning the season-opening game against the Memphis Grizzlies and ending the game with 14 points, 8 rebounds, 2 steals, and an assist. On October 29, Herro scored a career-high 29 points in a 112–97 victory over the Atlanta Hawks in his fourth game (and first non-start).
Due to an ankle injury, he was unable to participate in the Rising Stars game in 2020. In a 116–115 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on August 12, 2020, he scored a career-high 30 points.
Herro made NBA history on September 8, 2020, when the Miami Heat beat the Milwaukee Bucks inside the second round of the 2020 playoffs, becoming the first player born in the 2000s to play in an NBA Conference Final. He was chosen to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team on September 15, 2020.
To go along with his career-high 37 points in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, he’s now only the fourth player in playoff history to score 30+ points before turning 21. Only Magic Johnson had a higher scoring average at this age.
In addition, he became the Conference Finals’ youngest player to score 30 or more points (at the age of 20 years, 247 days) and the first rookie to score at least 100 points in a game. Herro became the first player from the 2000s to play in the NBA Finals after beating the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals.
His age (20 years, 256 days) made him eight days young than Magic Johnson in 1980 when he started Game 1 of the Lakers’ NBA Finals against the Philly 76ers as a 20-year-old rookie. It was in Game 4 of the same Finals series that he broke Matt Maloney’s 1997 NBA Playoffs record of 43 three-pointers made by a rookie, making 45 from beyond the arc.
