Erik Spoelstra: “I would really like to see Tyler Herro become an All-Star”

Tyler Herro is having a breakout season this year. The 22-year-old point guard is averaging 20.3 points per game which is 5 points more than last year, despite the fact that he is coming off the bench.

According to the Miami Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra, Herro deserves to become an All-Star for his impact on the team’s winning even if he is not a starter. Miami is currently in the second place in the Eastern Conference, just behind the Chicago Bulls

“I would really like to see Tyler Herro become an All-Star,” Spoelstra said. “I think he’s had an All-Star year. I think it would be great for the narrative of that you can still accomplish individual goals if the team is successful and even if you’re coming off the bench. There’s a lot of strong opinions and narratives out there that you have to be X, Y, Z to be considered a great player. I just think it’s a bunch of BS. It’s about impacting winning. Tyler’s been able to do that and we view him as our sixth starter anyway.”

Despite coming off the bench, Herro is the Heat’s second top scorer behind Jimmy Butler (22 points per game).
