As the Miami Heat prepare to embark upon their coming season, they, first, had to take care of a bit of in-house business. One of the biggest pieces of that business was getting Tyler Herro locked into a deal that keeps him in Miami, hopefully, for the foreseeable future.

Getting him inked to a four-year pact that will pay him $130 million dollars across the life of the deal, you can, very much so, say that they got it done. But with his new deal in tow, now comes the delivering on said deal part.

That leads to the biggest question for Tyler Herro entering the 2022-23 season.

Biggest Question For Tyler Herro: Can It Consistently Translate Into Postseason?

Tyler Herro has shown that he is one of the best young players that the NBA game has to offer today. That is a fact.

The Miami Heat and Tyler Herro are finally on one accord, money-wise. Now, one accord must be found and maintained when it comes to his production.

Heck, even beyond just the “young players” label of it all, he’s shown that he’s one of the elite regular season scoreres that the game has to offer, at any age or level of experience. His residence in the top 25 scorers in the league for much of last season is proof positive of that.

However and besides his first season, one where the numbers are heavily skewed by his big time couple of showings against Boston in the Bubble, he hasn’t really shown up in the playoffs. And in fact, his numbers have tailed off in the postseaon.

One former Miami Heat champion and NBA legend, Shaquille O’Neal or The Diesel, has a theory that for the best players, numbers like your socring figures should rise, at least, three points in the playoffs. Everyone knows that they defintely shouldn’t drop off, in the slightest, staying even at the very worsst.

That’s why this is his biggest question heading into this season. And though they have to emerge successful in the regular season in order for this even to be an issue—the Miami Heat play for titles, so you assume they’ll be there when the music stops on the regular year.

Next. Will Tyler Herro’s deal be a ‘good’ one in 2024?. dark

And if they want to dance happy dances and sing happy songs all the way until June, then Tyler Herro will have to continue to be what he has been during the regular seasons of his career in the postseason.
