    We said, Cal! I’m sure, Cal knows all about Rex, but I highly doubt he’s studied and watched hours upon hours, of Rex, playing on film! Smh…You think someone, asked this question because Herro’s “white?”

      You know you don’t have to use quotes when it’s a true statement, right? Like, he is actually white. That’s not just a popular opinion ?

      Thanks, for the lesson on quotations! Most ppl on here never saw, Rex play or was born, lol. I’m 39 and vaguely remember seeing people, wearing I heart Rex T-shirts. I just find it funny people compare this kid to another WHITE guy, that played at UK 30yrs. ago! Hell, I’m sure we could go back to 60’s & 70’s and compare him to, a Pat Riley. *PS- Not trying to make this a “Racist”, quote. I’m just a fat old white guy! Did I, use the quotation marks correctly this time?

      No it’s not an opinion that he’s white, but have you heard anyone compare him to Doron Lamb? Derrick Miller? Why do YOU think he’s being compared to Rex and not some of the other shooting guards who have played here and are similar?

    Because not a lot of white boys are very very good at basketball in comparison to the African-American kids that come through statistically it’s obvious he’s a very talented athlete and is comparable to a previous talented athlete Rex Chatman that is also white it’s just a fact and everybody knows it

      Stop living life concerned about skin color…heaven forbid someone compared Hero to someone else…Kenny Skywalker, Teyshawn Prince, Jeff Brassow, Jeff Sheppard…!

    Probably not fair to Herro to compare him to Rex at this point, and that’s what Cal was probably getting at.
    But, I found the similarities uncanny…the quick, high elevation on the jump shots and the ability to just pull up and shoot over the defender; sounds like Chapman has noticed the resemblance, too.

    Herro is the best on the team hands down.

      He certainly looks the most ready to compete if the season started today. I think he can be a great player. Like Devin Booker, but with the ability to play defense.

    Whoah…Hero is not a Rex Chapman! He is a replica of Jeff Sheppard with Chapman’s shot/touch. WOW
