When you look back on the memories from the 2018-19 season, one of them is definitely going to be Tyler Herro saying he is a bucket. During the Arkansas game, Herro’s trash talk with a friend on Arkansas’ squad launched a thousand memes, t-shirts, and signs:
Today on KSR, Herro admitted he didn’t expect the bucket nickname to take off like it did.
“I didn’t expect it anything from it because I say that a lot. That wasn’t the first time I said it.”
Herro’s teammates prefer to call him “Boy Wonder,” but whatever the nickname, there’s no denying Herro gave us some great memories, especially when Kentucky was on the road. We’ve heard him say it before, but Herro emphasized that he loves playing the villain.
“Like you said, from being in high school, everybody booing me, I kind of just live for that moment. I just like being the villain on the road…I like going into other teams’ arenas and ruining their weekends.”
Here’s where you can meet Tyler on his signing tour, which will definitely make your week, not ruin it.
