The NBA lost its mind and left Tyler Herro off the All-Summer League Team

The NBA announced two five-man All-Summer League teams Monday night and neither included Tyler Herro.

Instead of properly honoring Herro, here’s who made the cut:

First Team

  • Pelicans Point Guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker
  • Heat Guard Kendrick Nunn
  • Grizzlies Forward Brandon Clarke (MVP)
  • Nets Forward Jarrett Allen
  • Knicks Center Mitchell Robinson

Second Team

  • Trail Blazers Point Guard Anfernee Simons
  • Spurs Wing Lonnie Walker
  • Wizards Forward Rui Hachimura
  • Raptors Forward Chris Boucher
  • Pelicans Center Jaxson Hayes

The former UK shooting guard was a one-man wrecking crew for the Miami Heat, averaging 19.8 points (42.8% FG) 4.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. Those are just his numbers though four games in Vegas. He was the second-leading scorer at the California Classic a week earlier, averaging 19 points a contest.

If that wasn’t enough evidence to put Herro on the All-Summer League team, this should do the trick.

    What were the stats of those who made the team? Maybe that’s important to report, for context.

    How was his D?

    Team spirit?

    I assume he was awesome. But we lack info.

      I see a few people who didn’t actually watch the games and are now talking out of their asses. He played well and deserved a spot on the team.

      Lol just cause you play well doesn’t mean you make the All summer league team. It’s pointless so I’m not gonna argue but don’t say everyone is talking out of their asses cause you’re apparently the only one who watched the games because if you did, you would know some guys had better summer leagues and that’s fine, not a knock against Herro

    The actual reason is likely because Miami held him out of a couple of games, including their last one when they lost in the quarter finals. All the other guys made it further and played more.

      He should be use to it by now he has always seemed snubbed. I think it has something to do with being well…….

    It has to be an omission when considering his strong play in the summer league. SI has him listed as one of the best summer players. Interestingly, SI’s evaluation contained the following comment: “Herro has already begun to showcase more of his creative off-the-dribble game that was more often than not limited based on the way he was used at Kentucky. He’s quite obviously further along in that area than anticipated, and handed in some great performances for Miami that displayed his full range of offensive skills.” The article went on to say that Kentucky wasn’t holding him back–he improved while at Kentucky–but the creativity that he displayed in high school essentially re-emerged at the pro level. An interesting take.

    Zion nor Ja Morant made it either. It was lack of PT



    • Tango98

      It wasn’t lack of PT, i watched every game. They only held him out of one game. He played 4 of 5 games in Vegas and averaged 30 minutes per game (only 40 minute games). Definite oversight, stupidity or just outright disrespect.

      He didnt play in 2 games for sure.

      Pretty sure they only count Las Vegas league for these awards as that’s the only one that all NBA teams participate.

      Ja didn’t play at all and Zion only played a few minutes.

    9:12 pm July 15, 2019 Permalink

    Maybe it’s because he only played in 4 games



    • Tango98
      9:24 pm July 15, 2019 Permalink

      Over half the guys on the list played 4 games or less. Two guys played 3 games and Lonnie Walker only played 2!

    If this were done by ESPN Zion and RJ Barrett would have been first team despite Zion not playing but a few minutes and RJ having one good game.

    Go look at the other four guards who made it. I love Herro but their numbers were just better. Atleast post all the info before making an article complaining about it.

      LOL, Don’t expect any facts on here, just want they want to post to make their point. They won’t show any stats or facts that may hurt their case. Plus who cares, the play I saw was terrible and why 85% of the players will never make the NBA. But just like those already complaining about where we are ranked today for next season, gives them something totally meaningless to bitch about.



    • KayutsBy90

      Mash talks about facts then states that 85% of the summer league players will never play in the NBA. I think that percentage is a bit inflated.

    Easy, his points, assists, and rebounds, were all second on his own team. That guy Nunn was on the first team. He played great but not enough spots.
