Asia Basketball Update

+

I've been following Jeremy Tyler's Japan experience throughout the year on my site. There are a lot of videos if you are interested. As everyone saw in the combine he is a great athlete and has an NBA body. It will be interesting to see how he competes in the team workouts. Hopefully the Pacers will be more willing to discuss the day's events than the Jazz were.

Jeremy Tyler Utah Workout

Trying to figure out what was going on with the first workout. Utah was a strange place for Tyler to do his first team workout.

Jeremy Tyler in Japan

17
When the N.B.A. prospect Jeremy Tyler, 19, joined the Tokyo Apache this season, his baggage included retracting a commitment to play at the University of Louisville, skipping his senior year of high school, signing a $140,000 contract with Maccabi Haifa of the Israeli league and then bolting after seeing little playing time. Still too young to jump straight into the N.B.A., Tyler went to Japan for a second chance and to hone his raw skills in a league with many former N.B.A. and U.S. college players. After a season under the former N.B.A. coach Bob Hill, during which he also got advice from older teammates, including the former Seattle Supersonics center Robert Swift, Tyler’s nascent career, where he could play a role as a rebounder and interior defender, could be turning around. "Being in Japan is amazing, especially in Tokyo," said the 6-foot-11, or 2.11-meter, power forward, just days before the March 11 earthquake forced his league to cancel the season. "Everybody is so positive — my coaches, my teammates. There are so many different things to explore here. I’m really enjoying my time here. Basketball is taking care of itself."
