Jeremy Tyler is horrible

Jeremy Tyler is one of the worst players and the biggest waste of potential I've ever seen. His attitude and low basketball IQ were on full display this summer at the Los Angeles Drew League. I watched up close as he took horrible shots, tried to play on the wing, and was shooting contested fade away jump shots. To top it off, he got ejected for arguing an obvious foul call in the 4th qtr of a close game. He'll be out of the league as soon as his 1st contract is up. I guarantee it.

As a Warriors fan, I would

As a Warriors fan, I would rather the Warriors have re-signed Dominic McGuire and waive Tyler than keep Jeremy. He is really immature and I just don't see much room for improvement from him because I don't think he is commited. To me Draymond Green and Festus Ezeli will get more playing time than him. At least McGuire adds another veteran to this young team, he hustles, and was one of the Warriors best defenders and rebounders last year.

Jeremy is a guy who thought

Jeremy is a guy who thought he was too good to finish his senior year in high school. That should tell you all you need to know about his ego. I've always though his offensive game was way too raw for the NBA, but when I saw how bad his attitude was to go along with questionable skills and horrible IQ, I couldn't believe it. Someone had to tell me I was looking at an NBA player. What I saw from Tyler this summer would be considered completely unacceptable at a top high school program.

His skipping his senior year

His skipping his senior year of high school to go play overseas and his horrific attitude on that team and getting kicked off that team should've been a red flag for teams to not sign him. Don't understand how he ended up in the NBA.

I would hope Ezeli will get

I would hope Ezeli will get more PT this year, he should be a great defender down low and plays with a ton of energy...

what i never understood about

what i never understood about Tyler is how he was described as a top tier athlete. He's definitely fairly strong and has quickness, but when I see him play I would never describe him as an elite athlete by NBA standards. I understand when a team gambles on a headcase when he has great athletic ability, but I'm not sure if he fits that bill.

Bad advice? $3mil > $350k

The guy has been cut/given up on by at least two professional teams thanks to his attitude. He got paid quite handsomely by both and is getting a second year out of the Warriors. Had he stayed in school and gone to college, chances are he would've been the 2nd coming of Derrick Caracter (kicked off teams, never really dominating lower level competition) and would've been a 2nd rounder and out of league after one season. Instead he's made close to $2million, will make almost another mill this year and has a $100,000 guarantee for next season. He may be a rock head who isn't NBA material, but I'd say he's made the right decision do far.

no1 gonna stand up for tyler

i'ver seen him play in actual games and his got a feel for the game. he's got natural instincts and talent. soft touch around the rim, natural athleticism, good foot work, box outs.... and a potential in the post that not many 20 year olds show

he's just 20 years old attitude and IQ comes with time for some, he's not gonna be a kid forever...talent got the best of him.

Ego because he skipped his

Ego because he skipped his senior year???? Or was it grades and him knowing he'd never make it to college?

He was comited to lousiville.

He was comited to lousiville. From what i remember the level of competetion tyler was facing wasnt competative enough for him. So he decided to play over seas.

Going over seas worked out

If he cant cut it now he never would have be honest. He got 3 million out that move, sounds smart to me.

There is significantly less

There is significantly less in terms of offensive sets and discipline in summer ball. He needs work, and his shot selection isn't very good, but put him in an NBA game with an NBA coach and he wasn't that bad. He was a 7 ppg 5 rpg player as a starter playing right at around 20 mpg at age 20, and the last month of the season he averaged 9 ppg 6 rpg in 25 mpg.

It's the Drew League, I will admit Tyler's shot selection is one of his main weaknesses, but he's a little more effective when he knows Marc Jackson is going to put his ass on the bench if he starts screwing around.

Tyler

Remember that he is still only 20 years old. He has plenty of time to change his attitude, he has the potential to be a good NBA player if he changes his mind set.

Granted he's a bum right now

Granted he's a bum right now but I'm not really into saying what a 20 year old Kid can and cannot do moving forward with the right mindset and tutalage. Give him a chance to grow up people. He's not the first kid to buy into his own hype.
