Miami Heat rookie Tyler Herro is making noise in his debut season in the NBA. The 19-year-old shooting guard exploded with 29 points against the Atlanta Hawks. Jimmy Butler thinks that Herro is the real deal.

Butler was quoted by Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press as saying on Herro: “I doesn’t surprise me, and I don’t think it surprises anyone in this building anymore. It damn sure shouldn’t surprise anybody in the league. The guy’s a real player.”
