3. Tyler Herro
Tyler Herro has been cooking this year. He has been shooting the ball a lot for the Miami Heat but scoring many points. Averaging 22.9 points in the first eight games of the season and leading the Heat in scoring in five, Herro has taken the mantle of the go-to guy in the regular season.
Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo are the usual All-Star selections to represent Miami, but what Herro has been doing this season is hard to ignore. He is 23rd in the league in scoring while averaging 4.6 assists and five rebounds per game.
It’ll be interesting to see if Herro continues to lead his team in assists, but with Butler most likely waiting to turn it on toward playoff time, Herro will be the lead scorer for the majority of the regular season. Bam and Butler have Herro beat on name value, but his numbers this season should earn him some recognition. The only issue for Herro is he suffered a recent injury that will keep him sidelined for at least a couple weeks.
