Shares of Tyler Herro, Jamal Murray, and Gary Trent Jr. rose the most originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest“data-reactid =” 14 “>Shares of Tyler Herro, Jamal Murray, and Gary Trent Jr. rose like most originally appeared on NBC Sports Northwest
This week, NBC Sports’ Kurt Helin and Dan Feldman discussed the Boston-Miami series and more specifically how 20-year-old shooting guard Tyler Herro is “spreading his wings”.
In the latest Pro Basketball Talk podcast, Helin and Feldman wondered if Herro had taken such a big step just because of the Orlando bubble environment.
“The bubble is almost like a second season,” Helin explained. “I’m really curious to see what [Herro] seems in the routine of an NBA season and some hostile fans and things he has never dealt with. “
Is the production of Herro pellets sustainable?
Eh, maybe not.
And then there’s Nuggets guard Jamal Murray and his stellar game. There is no doubt that Murray got people noticed.
His Michael Jordan-like lay-up around LeBron James says it all.
But can we also talk about how Trail Blazers second-year shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. had his rise at the Orlando Bubble as well?
Of course, Helin and Feldman were just talking about the players who made it to the Conference Finals.
And to be honest, it makes sense.
Trent Jr. had his coming out party in Orlando proving he is a two-way player who leaves everything on the floor.
He wasn’t out there just showing off his ability to shoot, he wasn’t even pulling back from anyone on the other side.
Seeing Gary Trent Jr transform into a defensive bulldog who infuses all kinds of energy into the Blazers was a true highlight of this NBA season.

In his last 10 games of the season, Trent Jr. averaged 11.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 28.2 minutes of action.
Trent Jr.’s number was called and he was ready.
As the NBA world continues to talk about Herro and Murray, Rip City is still talking about Trent Jr.’s bubble performance.
Herro, Murray and Trent Jr. match the future of the NBA.
