Hyams: "Israel is my second home !" - Aug 19, 2008

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Eban Hyams

Eurobasket was able to talk to Eban Hyams (193-G-81, college: Georgia Perimeter), who played professionally in Israel the past season.
Read here what he got to tell about his experience:

Eurobasket: Eban, you played only in a few games last year in Israel, what was the

Eban Hyams: Well, I took my break to go home, as the league had giving teams ten days
off in January 2008. Since I had some personal things to solve back home,
the coach and management gave me the ten days for a trip to Australia. I
stayed for days longer than previously expected and missed one game and was
cut from the team.

Eurobasket: So what happened next? Did you return to Israel?

Hyams: Yes, I went back to apologize for what happened, but it was
apparently not good enough for them.
The team did not pay the last wages, but eventually paid me some of it
later if I would sign the clearance form. I did so in the end just to go in

Eurobasket: What are your plans for the upcoming season?

Hyams: Im here in Sydney and finished playing in the off-season and I am
trying to get back to Israel again to play another season there.
Whats pretty confusing to me: There is a rumor in Israel that I went to
jail either there or here in Australia. I never have been to jail, so its
very annoying to hear these charges against me and its really affecting my
chances of signing with a team.
I'm really sad that people would come to this level when all I did was
leaving in peace and in all honesty.
All I did was miss one game and I was willing to pay a fine or do whatever
it took to make up for it.

Eurobasket: So what is your message to the teams out there?

Hyams: All I want is for my name to be cleared, so I can go back and play in
I love the country and the people there and its my second home!
All my family in Israel is very supportive of me and they want to me there
as well and I hope that the teams wont believe such lies that are
spread just to destroy my name and career!

Thanks for taking the time to talk to us !
