Need another reminder of Tyler Herro being a “bucket”? He gave the world another one this evening.

During Miami’s preseason matchup tonight against the Atlanta Hawks, the former Kentucky guard absolutely torched the nets right from the tip.

In the first four-and-a-half minutes of the game, Herro scored the team’s first 14 (FOURTEEN) points on 5-5 shooting and 4-4 from three. At one point, the former Wildcat hit three 3-pointers on three consecutive possessions.

Check out the ridiculous highlights below:

Through two quarters, Herro is now up to 20 points on 8-11 shooting (4-6 from three) to go with four rebounds and one assist.

In two preseason games for the Heat, the former Wildcat is averaging 13 points (47.4% shooting overall and 37.5% from three), 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 0.5 blocks per contest.

As ESPN’s Brian Windhorst put it this evening, whoever put money down on Tyler Herro for Rookie of the Year is going to be very happy at the conclusion of the 2019-20 season.



Weird or Wonderful? LeBron James, Anthony Davis as giraffes…

Basically, the account LeRaffe James takes all of LeBron James’ Instagram photos and transforms them into giraffes. How do people come up with stuff like this? Also, how long does this take?!

THAT’S the power of the internet.

If you were wondering, the answer is yes: former Cat and current Laker Anthony Davis has even made a few appearances on the account. How does The Brow look in animal form?
