Herro has more than two million followers on Instagram and they provided enough hateful ammunition in the comments of his posts to send anyone into a funk. “There were so much rumors floating around my name,” Herro says. “The lifestyle stuff, the girls, and saying I’m getting caught up in that, which was never true.”

I asked Hawks coach Nate McMillan about the challenges that Tyler Herro presents:
“You have Butler tonight who went off. And Tyler’s very capable of doing the same thing.”

More on this storyline

He’s a former basketball player himself, who still studies the game like he was playing. He has a deep connection to his oldest son. And he’d never experienced Tyler quite like he was in 2020-21, when rumors swirled of a potential trade that would’ve sent Herro to the Houston Rockets as part of a package for James Harden. “That’s where he started losing some of his confidence and wondering, ‘What am I doing wrong?'” Chris says. “He wasn’t at the arena as much. I think he felt some people went bad on him, so he kind of stayed away.” -via ESPN / April 22, 2022
