Tony Parker was part of the incoming class of freshmen that were supposed to lead UCLA to instant success. While the 9-3 Bruins have had moderate success, Parker has started out his career looking like a bust. The 6-foot-9 big man from Atlanta has only averaged 3.3 points in 8.6 minutes per game this season. Over the holidays, he began showing signs of his unhappiness in Westwood. Parker sent a cryptic tweet that made it seem like he regretted going to UCLA: A lot of told me this wasn’t for me I wish I would’ve listened — tony parker (@tonyparker32) December 23, 2012 Then he sent this message on Christmas: Being in LA for Christmas is nothing like home — tony parker (@tonyparker32) December 25, 2012 And then this one: Counting down the days — tony parker (@tonyparker32) December 25, 2012 We don’t know what days Parker was counting down to, but it certainly seems like something related to leaving UCLA. According to the Los Angeles Times’ Diane Pucin, Parker said after practice Thursday that he planned on playing out the season with UCLA, but he made no promises about next season. He also reportedly did not regret his tweets. “Not at all,” Parker said, per Pucin. “I was homesick. Those were my feelings.” It sure sounds like Parker will be the next prominent athlete to leave coach Ben Howland’s program unless things change. H/T The Dagger
