Stories of Herro:
1.Made 95 3s in 5 minutes in a shooting drill
Today, we do a five-minute shooting drill. For a while, the most anybody made ... I think Kyle Wiltjer made 73 one time. But the last couple times Coach [Tony] Barbee, stood next to Tyler so they kept throwing Tony the ball and he would throw it to him and he'd shoot and shoot and shoot so he was getting off 18-20 more shots. So the normal 65 to 67 ... he made 83 before Florida in five minutes. Can you imagine? Threes. Today, he made 95. Ninety five shots made in five minutes. Probably shoot 100 shots and missed five.
2.Made 80 3s out of 100 in a Celtics workout.
3.Did something in a Heat shooting drill that no other guard prospect brought in by the Heat has ever come close to doing.
“He shot the ball extremely well,” Riley said of Herro’s workout at AmericanAirlines Arena. “But I think he shot the ball extremely well in most of his workouts. But in one of our workouts, we have one particular shooting drill that not one of our guards in all the years that we brought them in for workouts even came close to what he did. It usually takes the Ray Allens of the world and the Wayne Ellingtons of the world to really, it’s a challenging three-point shooting drill, and he just buried it.”
