Miami Heat: You all forced Tyler Herro to fade the Braids

Miami Heat stud rookie Tyler Herro was recently all over the news for deciding on a new look. Just a week or so later, the rookie is back to the basics.

When the Miami Heat took Tyler Herro in the NBA Draft, no one thought that the sharpshooter out of Kentucky was the right pick there. None of us imagined that down at 13 and in the form of a slinky guard out of Kentucky, the Miami Heat might find one of their next great talents.

While the jury is still out on his greatness or lack thereof, there is one thing that can be said for sure. He has the potential to one day be that way if his performances and numbers from over his first season mean anything. In just 27 minutes per contest, he’s averaged 12.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.1 blocks on 41.4 percent shooting from the floor and 39.1 percent from three.

All besides being injured for 18 out of a possible 65 games played, which he has no control over, he has been nearly flawless for the Miami Heat this year. What he can control and where he hasn’t been flawless though is when the matter concerns his appearance. Well, specifically in Herro’s case, his hairstyle.

The Miami Heat rook recently made the headlines for dawing a new look, one that mainly focused on his hair. Tyler Herro nearly broke the internet in recent weeks after his barber posted a photo of the three-point threat with braids in his hair.

To be clear and concise, the reactions were swift and ranged from everything you probably are thinking they did. What we weren’t so sure of though, is how the Miami Heat rookie would react to it all. Well, we now have our answer, courtesy of his barber once again.

While he was only spotted with his long hair out, not in braids, days after the initial outrage, he’s now fully done away with the notion by cutting his hair totally off. You guys made him do it. That’s what I believe and my opinion can’t be changed.

Well, it is what is. As we’ve maintained, he can do what he wants to his hair, as long as that jump shot stays in rhythm. Do you Tyler Herro, besides, it’s rather hard to do anyone else.
