Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro is arguably one of the team’s top internet stars.
From birthday surprises for his girlfriend to boxing videos to fashion photoshoots, Herro is getting the clicks. When he was named the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year, sports website The Score once again gave Herro the pageviews.
The website recreated a scene from the popular Foo Fighters hit, “There Goes My Hero.” The band members were replaced by Jimmy Butler, PJ Tucker, Kyle Lowry, Bam Adebayo and, of course, Herro.
Herro has certainly been a hero for the Heat this season. He became the first player in franchise history to win this award. Herro has led all reserves in scoring this season and is coming off a 25-point effort against the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
Herro learned he had won the award after practice on Tuesday. The team congratulated him and posted a video on the Heat’s official Twitter account. Udonis Haslem presented the trophy to Herro.
“In today’s NBA, honestly, you can be a star off the bench, you can be a star in any role if you see the big picture,” Haslem told Herro.
