Website Finds An Interesting Discovery On Tyler Herro

Earlier this week, Miami Heat guard Tyler Herro was named the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year. 

It marked the first time a Heat player won the award. Herro also made another distinction. The website Deadspin pointed out he is the first white American-born player to win a league award. The last one was Ryan Anderson of the Houston Rockets winning the Most Improved Player honor on 1992. 

“The stat is a polarizing one, especially for a league that’s so diverse. In 2021, the NBA featured at least 109 International players from at least 39 countries,” Deadspin writer Carron J. Phillips notes. “The reigning MVP is even a white player, it’s just that he’s from Serbia: not South Boston.”
