Tyler Herro burst onto the NBA scene as a rookie.  He put together a handful of games in last year's Disney Bubble and hasn't looked back.

He now has a cereal, a Chipotle bowl and an Instagram model girlfriend, Katya Elise Henry, who may or may not be pregnant.

From Heat Nation:

In a recent episode of the “Inside the Paint” podcast, hosts Ethan Skolnick and Ira Winderman revealed that the Heat have been concerned about Herro’s growing celebrity status as of late.

Tyler Herro chose to become a celebrity,” Winderman said. “He chose to become something outside the game, as is his right. With his breakfast cereal, and his Tyler Tuesdays, and his Chipotle Bowl and that’s all well and good. But you know what? Other players when they see a player doing that before they’ve truly reached it. I don’t know if I want to say there’s a jealousy. … They sort of take a scant view of the guy and say, ‘Wait a minute buddy. You haven’t done anything yet.'”

Skolnick then dropped the bomb that the Heat organization has been concerned about Herro for quite some time.

“Ultimately, the team starts to get a certain level of concern,” he said. “In this particular case, the team has been concerned now for months.”

So far in year two Herro hasn't taken the next step people thought he would.  All of the off the court distractions could be to blame or maybe he wasn't that good to begin with.

Let's make his failure to take the next step on the court somehow Katya Elise's fault.  I love blaming struggles on a girlfriend curse.  It's the best.
