Miami Heat rookie Tyler Herro said this week that he spent part of his time in quarantine studying some of the best shooters the NBA has ever seen on the hardwood.
Herro has been touted as a strong 3-point shooter himself, converting on 39.1% of his 5.4 attempts per game. Of course, there is always room to improve so the former Kentucky Wildcats guard took it upon himself to study some of the greats.
I’ve watched the same guys. Klay Thompson, Ray Allen, CJ McCollum, Steve Nash and Bradley Beal are the guys that’s I’ve watched — but just picking different things from each player.
Klay and Ray, they do the catch-and-shoot very well. So that’s the thing that I pay attention to when I’m watching them. But every player that I watch, or the coaches have me watch, I can dissect something new or something different from their game to try to add it to mine.
Herro missed 15 games prior to the season shutdown with an ankle injury but said this week that he is 100% healthy again and ready to play. Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said it will be a process integrating Herro back into the lineup so the eight seeding games figure to be important for the team to finalize a rotation prior to the start of the playoffs.

FC DALLAS SEES 9 PLAYERS TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 AHEAD OF MLS TOURNAMENT: REPORT
The league also said that Vancouver was delayed in arriving at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World in Orlando earlier this week after two players’ test results came back inconclusive for COVID-19 during the teams pre-travel screening.
The results eventually came back negative and the team will arrive on Monday.
The decision to cancel the first match of the tournament comes just after news broke that several members of FC Dallas tested positive upon arriving for the tournament.
The club initially confirmed Wednesday that six players were infected but reports emerged later that day that three more players and one coach had also tested positive.
“In consultation with MLS medical officials, FC Dallas took proactive steps to isolate the newly affected players as well as all FC Dallas players and staff in Orlando out of an abundance of caution. All members of the club delegation are following MLS health and safety protocols and will remain quarantined in their hotel rooms pending the results of further COVID-19 testing,” the statement read.
Both teams will play their first game on July 15.
“The later match date will allow both teams additional training days in Orlando in advance of their first match,” the league said in a statement.
