With the NBA preseason wrapping up, the Miami Heat are preparing for the regular season and in hopes of making a deep playoff run this year. Overall, they’ve had a very successful preseason.

It was very impressive that the Heat could accumulate a winning record over the course of the preseason, but what matters more is how players look. And some of them look incredible.

One player that has particularly shined bright for Miami has been Tyler Herro. He has led the team in minutes and scoring during the preseason.

Obviously, his role will look different heading into the regular season, but Herro has shown signs that he could make a tremendous leap this year. After a surprising rookie postseason that showed sparks of greatness and a solid but quiet sophomore year, Tyler Herro looks to be ready to take his game to the next level.

He was recently quoted saying that he believes he should be in the same conversation as young rising stars such as Luka Doncic, Trae Young, and Ja Morant. Is it realistic for him to be thinking like this?

Based on his career so far, probably not, but it shows the confidence he has in himself. If he can play like he did in the preseason, his comment might not look as astonishing.

Is that possible? Of course it is and here is why.
