Considered in hindsight as one of the “steals” of the 2019 Draft, Tyler Herro recently confided that he ended up abandoning the outfit he wore that night, and that’s rather good news …
“I think he’s with my parents, but he’s probably outgrown me. It was already tight ”, he whispered about his rather dark suit adorned with floral patterns… purple and blue.
The former resident of Kentucky, however, delivered an anecdote that may undermine the morale of Celtics fans a little. Tyler Herro has indeed indicated that he could have made the Celtics happy, and had even prepared for this eventuality. Until Pat Riley comes upset his plans …

I was blessed to come here instead of going there ”, he recalled, he who must have remembered this moment when he greatly participated in the elimination of the C’s in the conference final, in particular with 37 points in Game 4.
“My agent told me Pat Riley texted him. From then on, after hearing it from my agent, I heard it from the commissioner’s voice. It was moving, that’s clear. It was a great moment for me, I was enthusiastic ”.

His advice to the youngest for tonight’s event, which he will follow closely? “Just enjoy the moment”.
“It happens quickly, and you only get drapped once. So make the most of it while you can. Because once it’s over, especially this year when there isn’t a Summer League, the season is going to start quickly and it will happen quickly. So take advantage. I have a few former college mates there. So I am ready to see where they will land ”.
