Thanks. I'm still hoping that the Grizzlies.com web developers will fix the programming on their end so that the Upcoming Games section goes back to being side-by-side with the Game Information. The last changes they made on the boards messed it up.

The Mavericks are depleted and weak. Hopefully they take care of business and rest for the tough and unpredictable Rockets, who run teams out the building sometimes.

Sorry guys, no chance on earth we win. AUTOMATIC LOSS!

 

With the oppressive shackles of Hollins' system removed, OJ has been able to finally reach his potential. He has blossomed into the best SG in the NBA for the 2013 season. Even the great one (Kobe) has been dethroned by Juice's amazing awesomeness. He's just super. Nothing can stop him. We lose by 35, Juice goes off for 50-60+.

 

ALL HAIL OJ MAYO!! THE GREAT AND POWERFUL! May his reign as the greatest sports person ever in the history if the earth be a long and prosperous one! I can't wait to see you play again OJ!! You're mmaculate! Simply unbelievable! I cry when I see you play! I love you...

SuperMayo tonight is 2-9, minus-27. And tomorrow he'll be tired.

I want to see Mayo shut RIGHT down.

After that he can go and score 50 against Houston if he wants, best of luck buddy.

Mayo doesn't miss shots. The rim must have moved.

O. J. has looked like the fourth best shooting guard... on the floor at American Airlines Arena tonight. Wade, Allen, and Miller have out performed him. I'm tempted to say Vince Carter might have as well.

As much as i wanna see TA shut down OJ and us get the W, i hope the crowd at FEF gives him a nice ovation before the game. There'd be no reason to boo him as he made the right decision for himself, and he didn't say anything bad about the Grizz after he left. When i see other fans boo their former players at games, it makes them see so trashy and stupid as a fanbase.

Same here. I don't think anyone should have any ill will against him, and if he wasn't in our own division I'd root for him every day except when playing against us.

Well, I was hoping DAL could beat MIA last night or at least go 2 or 3 OTs with them and just get completely spent, but they didnt and OJ had a whopping 8 pts.

 

Normally I would think that would be a sign that OJ will erupt for 30+ tonight but I just cant see OJ scoring like that unless TA is hurt or sick. Just dont think TA is going to allow that. LOL

 

I really just want to win this game and get it over with. I dont get any joy from watching OJ do badly if he does tonight and I dont wish him to be on a bad team, but I just want to get this done and get a win and go to 18-6

O.J. Mayo tried to paint his first trip to Memphis as a Grizzlies opponent as "just another game on the schedule," but it didn't take much to get him to say that he had some major additional motivational fodder for his return.

 

"Going back to a former team that you had some mishaps between the two parties, that's the way it goes," Mayo said late Thursday night. "You obviously want to go back and kick their butts. They want to kick your butt to show that you're not needed, whatever the case may be."

 

Mayo, who has blossomed into an All-Star candidate for the Dallas Mavericks since signing this summer for the bargain salary of $4 million, had quite a fall from grace in Memphis.

 

The Grizzlies planned to build around Mayo at shooting guard after he arrived in Memphis as the third overall pick in the 2008 draft and put up pretty impressive numbers as a rookie, averaging 18.5 points per game. But plans changed and Mayo's numbers plummeted, particularly after he was demoted to sixth man the last two seasons.

 

Mayo butted heads with coach Lionel Hollins and had a much publicized fight on the team plan with teammate Tony Allen, who replaced him in the starting lineup, over a gambling debt. The Grizzlies almost traded Mayo on at least three occasions -- once informing him that he'd been dealt to Boston, only to call him back the next morning after his bags were packed to tell him the deal was off.

 

Suffice to say, Mayo knew all along that he wouldn't be returning to Memphis after his rookie deal expired at the end of last season.

 

"Once you see the writing on the wall, you can't be dumb to the fact," said Mayo, who didn't have any discussions with Memphis while he was a free agent. "I didn't even go to the exit meeting. I pretty much knew what it was."

 

Memphis' management has given big contracts to Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol and Mike Conley in recent years. Those four are the foundation of a team that sits atop the Southwest Division standings with a 17-6 record.

 

"Management did what they felt was best for the team," Mayo said, "and it looks like it's working out for them."

 

The move to the Mavs has worked out for Mayo, who proudly says he always gave the Grizzlies his all despite knowing he didn't fit with the franchise. He ranks ninth in the NBA in scoring at 20.2 points per game and leads the league in 3-point percentage (.500).

 

The truth is Mayo looks forward to trying to light up his former team, although it'll be tough on the butt end of a back-to-back after the Mavs arrived in Memphis at about 2 a.m. Friday. It doesn't take too much to get him to admit that he's still mad about his time in Memphis and would love to get a little payback.

 

"How would you feel? How would you feel?" Mayo said. "It's going to be fun, I think so. (Expletive), it's going to be fun."

 

I cannot wait.

You know I really hate mayo wasn't atleast a legit 6'5 with a 6'9 wingspan. If he was I would have gone with him over Rudy as part of the core and team foundation. But his physical limitations and his own mentality about his limitations made the decision easy for Lionel.

 

even though Lionel isn't crazy about short SGs I think he would have been a better fit with Zbo because he prefers to take jumpers than driving to the rim. He also is a much better passer and could share with ball-handling duties with Conley.

 

Tony Allen would have to get moved to the bench and Mayo would have to be declared as 2nd option on offense for his ego because he could not wrap his head around being 3rd or 4th option.

 

but the problem was he isn't 6'5 and wasn't 2nd option. So he wanted to be a PG instead of a scorer which is his true talent. He harped on how difficult it was for him to guard bigger guys. He couldn't understand how he can still have a large affect on offense by being primary weapon off the bench he couldn't follow the path of Manu Crawford or Terry. Mayo focused too much on his limitations while he was here instead of making his strengths elite level so to force the coach to change his philosophy.

 

Yes Hollins never utilized him correctly mainly by just allowing him to be a jump shooter and secondary ball-handler. so we had to move on without him yea we are more successful so far but I do think mayo is an AllStar level talent and wish it could have worked out.

I think a lot of O.J. apologists forget one thing. They like to cite his size as the reason he failed at shooting guard with the Grizzlies. Mayo is listed as 6'4", 210 lbs. Tony Allen is 6'4", 213 lbs. Dwayne Wade is 6'4", 220 lbs. Ray Allen is 6'5", 205 lbs. Jerryd Bayless, 6'3" 200. Wayne Ellington, 6'4", 200. I could go on.

 

It wasn't size that was the problem; there are lots of shooting guards his exact same size. In the end, it was his attitude and approach that lead to him not fitting the Grizzlies plans, not his physical makeup. The "between the ears" part of the game and his ego which would not allow him to change the way he played to be what worked for the team. It took four years before Mayo went into an off-season working on shooting guard drills rather than point guard drills. The team need a defender and a spot-up/catch and shoot player at shooting guard, and O.J. was not willing to improve his skills in those aspects.

 

I am sure if O.J. had tried to develop those skills, he would still be shooting from the wing in FEF in Beale Street Blue. But his approach of "its my way" was never going to work with this team.

Tony, DWade and Eric Gordon are the same height, but have longer wingspans. It is easier for them to defend the position.

Kinda wish OJ hadnt gone there. I guess the reporter goaded him into saying some of those things. He usually says all the right stuff even if he does hold a grudge. He ought to be happy he was let go.

 

He should thank his lucky stars that the mean ole Grizzlies freed him from the horrible time he had here and now he is leading a team that is under .500 while his old team has been deemed a lock for the playoffs and is in the top 5 or 6 teams in the league.

 

But seriously he didnt need to make it like that. But he had to go there. I just hope TA is ON tonight defensively.

Yes they have the wingspans of 6'6 and 6'7 guys and are also way more explosive athletically so they can get to the rim at will. Mayo should have patterned himself after Ray Allen but just with better defense and passing.

 

I am no Mayo apologists I easily choose Conley and Rudy over him because of the one fact that those two guys never ever had issues with there physical limitations to the point that they wanted to change positions. Conley added weight and a jump shot. Rudy added weight and ball handling.

 

Mayo just harped on what he couldn't do. Now I give Lionel some blame For that because he constantly told mayo to attack the rim when that wasn't his strength so maybe that eventually wore on mayo. Lionel has a hard time gearing guys to always play to there strengths. Mayo should have been catch and shoot guy and 3pt specialist. You can run plays to ISO him from the 3pt line the way he does With Rudy. Plus picknroll plays. But asking him to draw fouls on anything but straight line drives to basket is a no no. Lionel should have recognized that he needed to play mayo as ray Allen and let him shoot anywhere from the floor whenever he has daylight.

This will be a great mental test for OJ in his quest to prove his detractors wrong. Coming off a poor showing the previous night, on a back-to-back, first return to the forum as an opposing player against a team/mgmt. that didn't have the best relationship, against a defender who took his starting role (also a physical altercation), all this along with trying to lead his own team-I'd say OJ has his work cut out for him tonight.
