Tyler played 10 games and scored a total of 21 points for Maccabi Haifa. That works out to $14,000 a game, $7,000 per point. Here’s wishing him better luck wherever his basketball endeavors take him next (via ESPN): “Former U.S. high school basketball star Jeremy Tyler quit Israeli team Maccabi Haifa and returned home 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 five weeks before the end of the season.”
