With the No. 13 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, the Miami Heat will select Tyler Herro out of the University of Kentucky.

“It’s a dream come true,” Herro said on ESPN. “Not too many kids make it from where I’m from… I’m just happy I’m here.”

Herro averaged 14.0 points and 4.5 rebounds per game as Wildcat and also finished with the highest free-throw shooting percentage in program history.

As for his outfit, Herro said he had the “best drip here”.


The former Cat gets picked just one spot after his teammate, P.J. Washington.

Congrats to Herro. Now we wait to hear where Keldon Johnson lands.

      Has anyone noticed that only a KY player has even mentioned their coach? That says a lot.

    Sucks I knew that was going to happen. Was hoping Celtics would get him.

    The way his voice cracked when he said “I got the best drop here” was pretty funny. Proud of him and PJ, as I am with every UK kid. Let’s get Kelvin off this board!

      Cut him some slack, it’s probably auto correct.

      I was texting my nephew and it changed Keldon to Weldon.

      100% auto correct… my phone first tried to change it to Nelson then after deleting it changed it to Kelvin.

      Sorry dude, autocorrect is a thing. I’ll try not to make such a pathetic mistake again. My only hope is that you forgive me and that my lapse in judgement doesn’t deeply effect your life in more ways than it obviously already has. Moving forward, I’m going to quadruple proofread every comment I make in order to satisfy your standards. That is, of course, if I can find the strength in my pathetic life to carry on after upsetting you so.

    There’s no way Herro comes back & gets drafted higher than 13 next season. Kid made the best decision for him. Keldon on the other hand..

      Agreed.

      Also… if he had went to another school he probably would’ve even had been a one and done.

    What the hell? KSR announced Keldon to Cavs by Zack Gohagen then took it down.

      WTF was that all about?

      I saw that. I’m streaming the draft so it’s a little late, was confused when they announced the 26th pick.

      Agree. I was told if it’s on the internet it has to be true

      they are doing secret trades between picks and KSR is in on the phone calls via conference call. exclusive coverage. deal on, deal off.

      It was probably a rough draft in case Johnson went to Cleveland. I saw a sentence that was not even finished.

    Good for Herro a decent fit. Not surprised Pat Riley would go after him he reminds me of a younger Pat Riley/Rex Chapman.

    I honestly think Keldon ended up in the best situation of the three UK draft picks tonight.
