Dont lie, you know you wrote it!

Actually, if liloj and i browse the same forum, someone mentioned OJ being a top 5 SG. Maybe that's where he got it from.

He ain't the best.
He ain't the worst.

He's prolly 2nd or 3rd best off the bench (Harden, Manu(depending on what position one considers Manu))

He could start for most lotto teams and would be " the man" for the Bobkittens or Whizzers.


And he's young enough to pull it all together with consistency ....... HOPEFULLY, he'll figure that out.

I doubt it'll be here in Memphis and that's unfortunate, because I do like him on the team.

Since Randolph has come back and for the moment accepted his bench assignment ..... OJ has accepted his, and has been better and more consistent. Anyone else see this?

I wonder if anyone will offer him more than his qualifying offer?

He's scheduled to make $7.4 million next season from his qualifying offer. If the Grizzlies offer him that he may take it.

Like I said OJ has the talent to be that guy but he must bring it consistently.

This is such a radical difference from what you were saying about OJ two weeks ago.

For us, yes. I worry about liloj though. This can't be good for his psyche.

Oj needs to remain a Grizzly. He is getting better and better. He went from not being not even close to to handle the point guard position to actually being very important when he has to spell MC there. Yes, he is primarily a shooter but he still has shown he can assist other players in getting their shots.

He is a much, much better defender. His all around game has improved and for those that point out his inconsistency from time to time; please realize it happens with all most all our players. Only Haddadi is consistent. And that's because he doesn't play long enough to be able to judge that. :D

Whether we can afford to keep him is another question. But I sure hope we do.

Here's what really sucks. It's game to game with some posters on this board. It seldom fails. One game, either the Grizz suck or (pick your player) so and so sucks. :rolleyes:

Am I wrong for saying

I'd rather have a Starting OJ Mayo next season over Dwyane Wade who is clearly on the decline and injury prone?

Kobe went 3-21 two games ago and he missed his first 15 shots of the game. The game before that Kobe went 7-25, and three games before that he went 5-17, but no one is calling Kobe inconsistent. I understand that Kobe is more consistent than OJ has been this season, but OJ proved he can be pretty consistent his first two seasons when he averaged 18 PPG. Also, OJ is a much better player now than he was in his first two seasons, so I don't see why he couldn't become consistent again as a starter for the grizzlies or for another team.
But Kobe is like 85 years old with three broken arms and one good leg.

Without any question, OJ Mayo is absolutely the best SG for the Grizzlies that wears #32.
