    Jeremy Tyler Quits Maccabi Haifa

    Jeremy Tyler quit Maccabi Haifa and returned home to San Diego on Friday, cutting short a disappointing first pro season.

    The 18-year-old Tyler arrived in Israel on a wave of publicity in August after deciding to skip his senior year at San Diego High School to gain professional experience.

    However, his time in Israel was fraught with problems, and he left two months before the end of the season.

    “Due to personal matters, Jeremy chose to leave the team on his own will on March 18 and return home to San Diego,” Maccabi Haifa owner Jeffery Rosen said in a statement. “We wish Jeremy all the best.”

    In the 10 games Tyler played for Haifa, the 6-foot-11 power forward averaged only 2.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 7.6 minutes. Tyler, who reportedly earned a $140,000 salary, found it hard to adapt to the pro game and couldn't find a place in Maccabi Haifa's starting lineup.

    That's why kids don't play in a man's league...& that's not even really a man's league.

    he cant play for college because he is now considered a professional since he has been paid for playing basketball. He essentially ended his college eligibility when he signed with them.

    These kids really underestimate the euro-league. Communication alone is a strong barrier to overcome. It's a tough and rugged game over there.

    This kid made a huge mistake going oversea's, he should've asked Brandon Jennings for some advice. I remember hearing how Jennings got into a plane and flew back home, same day the season had ended. It's not a place for a 19 year old, let a lone a 17 year old.

    I actually live in Israel pretty close 2 Haifa (originally from NY), and English is extremely popular here almost every1 speaks English so it shouldn't have been such a problem for him. The team as a whole isn't even all that good so i don't know what exactly he struggled with.

    Poor kid. Got conned into being the poster child for someone else's agenda, and now he has to deal with the consequences.

    So he couldn't cut it there and can't play in college. He doesn't have a high school degree and probably can't get a college one.

    Better make that $140,000 last for awhile. Hope it was worth it to him.
