Tyler Herro studied Ray Allen, Klay Thompson during quarantine — The Rookie Wire

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.

Herro said on a conference call with reporters, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel, that he specifically looked at those players that were great at the catch-and-shoot.

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.
