The Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler shared his thoughts about his fellow teammate Tyler Herro winning the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award:

“He deserves that, he’s been a huge part of our success. He works so incredibly hard … He’s going to be a big reason why we end up winning it this year.”

In his 2021-22 season, Herro has put up 20.7 PPG, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists per game, all off the bench. The 22-year-old has played in 66 total games this season, out of 82.
