I don't really see the point. The game is played so differently over there that it takes time to adjust and you're going to have trouble finding playing time while adjusting.

You make that extra year or two of money, but you probably aren't going to improve as a player for when you do enter the NBA.

So stupid. Unless his family is just dirt poor and he's doing it so they will have a better life, it's absolutely stupid. College years are the best times of your life, and god forbid you actually learn something too.

And online classes are just a joke.

That could be a bad decision, but maybe he feels he can't compete on the NBA level anyway and would like a living in basketball. I could understand how he came to this decision. There may be a big desire for money given his life's circumstances and he can make big money right away. You'd wish these guys would at least finish high school, but then again we are not that person so how could we know.

No..he feels he's to good for High School basketball and he would just be "bored" playing next season..he wants to play in the NBA someday..he was suppose to be going to Louisville to play college ball.

There are multiple reports about why he's leaving. Supposedly there is some smoke around his coaches and recruiting. One rumor was that he threatened the coaching staff to get some talent around him (the next tallest guy on the team is like 6'2") or he was going to leave, others say he was getting gifts..overall not a good story around this kid. Leaving to Europe seemed to have quell any and all rumors going on.

As for Jeremy, good luck. I think it was Thorpe who said that he had a friend at the school that said he wasn't serious about school anyway.

He's not the only one either for this year. Latavious Williams is going to play in China and he's an '09 grad.

*didn't read the article but know of the situation already*

Jeremy Tyler is doing what is best for him. While I can say possible eligibility problems played a major role in his jump, basketball-wise there was little to be gained from Tyler playing another year of prep ball.

I know a guy who knows Tyler and his handlers, and have a friend who is friends with one of Tyler's former coaches. Tyler was extremely frustrated by how easy high school ball was last year. Both of my guys said if asked Tyler would readily admit that he felt "held back" on the court because his size/athleticism/skill were too great for every other player on the floor.

Playing against grown men who have played ball for year Tyler will not be able to slack off and still dominate. That plus the fact that Israel is a very American friendly league from a coaching standpoint make this a good experience for Tyler.

Another positive is that with this being a one year deal Tyler can play, discover his weaknesses, and then next year sign with a club who promises to allow development in those weak areas.

This.

Hes been extremely dominant against competition out there, similar to BJ Mullens in HS, but hes not getting the chance to develop his game while being triple teamed by 6'2 kids and dunking all game.

If you had a million dollars (dont know the exact figure) thrown at you when you were 17 or in most your cases....when you finally turn 17 THEN YOU CAN TALK...

MOST idiots on here have NEVER paid a single bill in their whole lives.....

It's 140,000, and I guess it makes sense for the last year of high school but I really don't think that it does for the one year of college.

I mean look at how much Jennings lost because his draft position fell when he went to Europe and didn't do very well. I doubt he gained any useful experience because he spent the entire time there on the bench adjusting to to different rules and playstyle. If he had just gone to college for one year and played great, he could have easily gone top 4 in this years draft. He would have ended up making more money and would have picked up useful skills in college.
