Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro wants to have a breakout year in the 2021-22 NBA season and did the job this summer by adding 10 pounds of muscle to his 6-foot-5 frame.

In conversation with Jeremy Tache about Bally Sports Florida Podcast, Herro made a bold statement about his level of talent and where he stands among other NBA players like Trae Young and Luka Doncic.

“I feel like I’m in the same conversation as these guys, the young people who move up in the league and one day can be all-stars, superstars,” said Herro. “You know, Luka, Trae, yes. Guys like that, I think my name should fall into that category too.

“I’ve put the work in and I’m getting better every day. So I set a lot of goals for myself to be an all-star one day and to keep pursuing my dreams. So I’m very excited to see where I can go. “

After the interview went live, Herro’s comments were rejected by analysts in several outlets. ESPNs sport Center Host Randy Scott tweeted, “How … alphabetically?”

Paul Kasabian of Bleacher Report headlined an article titled “Heats Tyler Herro Believes He’s on the Same Level as Luka Doncic, Trae Young, Ja Morant.”

Ernesto Soliven of the Basketball Network asked, “Tyler Herro thinks he’s an NBA superstar – can he back that up with his game?”

Herro is a solid player who averaged 15.1 points, five rebounds and 3.4 assists last season, but his stats pale compared to those of Doncic, Morant and Young.

Doncic, 22, is an absolute beast, a two-time All-NBA first-team superstar. Young, 23, averaged 25.3 points per game last season, while Morant, 22, averaged 19.1 points.

However, if Herro’s regular season stats reflect the level of performance he showed in the preseason, he could soon join this elite talent circle.

While being super confident is nothing new for the young “Boy Wonder”, his comments have been more ambitious than delusional. Herro wants to join the same conversation as Doncic, Morant, and Young, but the 21-year-old Kentucky alum knows he’s not there yet.

“What I mean by that is, I feel like these are the guys I’m chasing right now, not really the same players as them,” Herro told Sun Sentinel’s Ira Winderman on October 13, “but in to be able to follow them and be at the level they are. Of course they have their own teams and things like that. “

“For me, chasing her and trying to fall into the category like her, that’s definitely my opinion,” Herro continued. “I don’t think I should sell myself without something.”

During his rookie season, Herro averaged 13.5 points, 4.1 assists and 2.2 rebounds per game while shooting 38.9% from depth. Last year he averaged 15.1 points, five rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game, but his three-point average dropped to 36%.

Herro didn’t let the sophomore slump affect his off-court life, and his star power seemed to grow exponentially with just branded deals and referrals – accolades that didn’t go down well with his critics. On the media day, however, Herro’s coach and teammates stood up for him.

Heat All-Star Bam Adebayo said of Herro: “He sees a lot of doubt and hatred and wants to prove people are wrong. He’s starting the season with a bigger chip on his shoulder. “

Head coach Erik Spoelstra said it was wrong to see Herro’s second year in the NBA as a slump:
