    OJ Mayo has played like an All Star here, no joke. We would be fighting the Wizards for worst record in the league right now if not for him. Extremely gifted offensive player (not only shooting, but creating for others) and solid defender. He's gonna get PAID next year.

    I am thrilled to hear that. I hope he continues to grow into one of the top SGs in the leauge. Met him a couple times. Great guy, great player. I'm looking forward to when he and the Mavs come play in Memphis so i can watch him again.

    First, I agree with all of this.

    My only knock on Mayo is that he doesn't call for the ball enough. With his skill he could dominate. Because of this he kind of reminds me of a young Michael Finley. Their games are different (kind of) but they remind me of each other. I don't see the killer instinct. In all fairness the same was said about Dirk for years and he developed that killer instinct and won a title. Although Dirk is special though. Mayo definitely needs to start however I think he would be better suited as a 2nd or 3rd option on a team.

    Hes really good. Probably wont get any worse or any better which is fine.

    Hes not super flashy or strong, just very good. Which is perfect for complimenting Dirk.

    He needs to hit his free throws in the clutch tho

    It's a relatively fair comparison, if you are comparing him to a younger JET. They have similar numbers for this age. That being said, I can't prove it through any stats, but it just feels like Mayo is much better at going with the flow of the game. Too many times I saw Terry just start jacking (think like Kobe) when his shot wasn't hitting.

    From Mayo, I see the opposite, he maybe passes too much. Regardless, JET isn't a terrible player. He was a solid sidekick to Dirk through the middle of the decade. And Mayo is bigger than Terry. Terry was good at jumping passing lanes, but Mayo is much better at man to man. All in all, I wouldn't think it to be the worst thing in the world if Mayo wound up having a similar career to Terry. Mayo is not a superstar, but he can be the solid number two on a championship roster.

    I'm backing up his opinion, it's mine too. Inconsitent might be the wrong word because he was consistent during the first couple games, he just tends to go down like everybody else when we're going down.... though I know what he means. He should be fighting more. We're just a team way too nice to everybody. We're not hurting, we're not doing any harm. We're like kittens. Considering our veterans, their epxerince and class and our talent on the paper... that's sometimes hilarious.

    I think Mayo is best suited as a 2nd or 3rd option on a team. If the Mavs can sign a center that is really strong on defense and a pass first PG with a high basketball IQ I think they could be a championship contender again within 2 years. This is what I would like to see the Mavs starting 5 be next year.

    PG - Calderon
    SG - Mayo
    SF - Marion
    PF - Dirk
    C - Dwight Howard

    ^ that's a brutal comparison man. Mayo is nowhere near as disruptive to an offense as Terry was. He also isnt 100% reliant on a jumper

    The reason I compair them is 1. Stats 2. Both could have been better if they gave more effort. I cant prove the 2nd one but thats just how I see it.

    Mayo is amazing but he is actually toooooo unselfish

    He rarely shoots in the first half then always goes off in the second half

    Maybe that's his thing

    Very much the opposite of Josh Howard. JHo used to score like 15-18 in the first half then finish the game with low 20s
