Does anyone think that OJ Mayo can be the next Kobe Bryant. Mayo is very young still and is a pure scorer and is probably only going to get better.
Whats your opinion?

Next Ray Allen maybe.


He better hope Gay does not resign and Hollins does not wake up and allow Marc Gasol more shots or he will end up beng a role player.

Unfortunantely.

Because i think he should be the main man in Grizz and they shoudl trade Gay.

not the next Kobe since i dont think he can ever become as good a shooter from all over the court like kobe...
and he takes too many ill advised shots that he misses horribly....
he reminds me more of an allen iverson than anything....in the future he might be the type to score 30-40 points every game simply cause he takes like a million shots

I like this. He might be "Kobe-lite."

When Kobe was in his physical prime, he was tremendously athletic, quick, and strong.

I don't see how Kobe and Mayo compare physically at all.

I think Mayo will be a good player, but based on his physical peripherals, I can't see him becoming a legendary superstar, ala Kobe Bryant.

I like to compare him more as a small Melo. He will have a very good career, but not a Kobe-like career. I think Melo is a lot better comparison, a pure scorer with a great jab-step shot, and spinmove.

You would make Rudy Fernadez the main man on Blazers if you were in charge solely because he's a spanish player.

Hell you would probably trade Brandon Roy and Lamarcus Albridge if it meant getting Marc Gasol and Sergio Rodriguez.

the thread is about MAYO

and what im saying is

2 MAYO should be the main guy in grizz.

3 Marc gasol should get more touches.

Basically scoring options for grizz 1 Mayo 2 Marc 3 Zach.


but what will PROBABLY HAPPEN

1 they resign gay and given his good numbers hollins makes more plays for marc

Options 1 Gay 2 Zach 3 Marc = oj ends up being role player.

He's started out faster than Kobe Bryant, but the rest remains to be seen. Maybe in a bid to win quick and save the Grizzies' franchise, Memphis will trade Marc Gasol and OJ Mayo to Los Angeles for Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol (please understand that I am kidding).
If Mayo becomes the focal point of the offense - after Zach Randolph is gone - then he can be like Kobe. It all depends on how much he gets to the rim, which translates into how much he is willing to work (Spike Lee's "Kobe Bryant: Puttin' Work In," or something like that). Mayo has the ability, though. He also has a good secondary supporting cast.

Zach Randolph : 846 attempts

Rudy Gay :796 attepts

Oj Mayo :769 attempts

Marc Gasol : 478 attemtps


so basicaly marc gets HALF the shots Zach gets and 55% of the shots fay and mayo get

Zach 20.5 ppg

gay 19.8 ppg

mayo 17.7 ppg

Gsol 14.9 ppg


so let me get this straight

Zach needs to shot TWICE te times marc shots to get 5 more points
:rolleyes:

Gay needs to shot almost tice the times to get 4 more points :facepalm:

Mayo needs to *** almost twice the times to get 3 more points :eyebrow:


Yeah im obviously spaniard biased.....

After he got his -ss whooped by some rookies that came out of a weak draft class, he'll never be the next Kobe. He's not playing in the All-Star game and he's not even Kobe's replacement at shooting guard at the All-Star game. He better be like Tyrke Evans or Dejuian Blair.

Hawkeye15
02-14-2010, 07:57 PM

Hawkeye15
02-14-2010, 08:02 PM
Mayo doesn't drive, relies on his jumper, and still gets beat off the dribble. Kobe was drawing fouls left and right his 2nd year, and scoring, rebounding, and passing at a far higher pace, despite the Lakers feeble attempts to keep his growth in check. He may be the modern Reggie Miller. He aint gonna be a Wade/Kobe player

02-14-2010, 08:42 PM
I know I'm gunna get shot down 4 this but the only young player I think u can compare 2 kobe is Kevin durant, I know their size is diferent but just the way they can score from anywhere on the court... also the way Tyreke Evans plays (if he improved his j)

mzgrizz
02-14-2010, 09:27 PM
No, I don't think he'll be a Kobe clone. He really has taken a back seat in his development with all our scorers but he does not YET seem to be affected with sharing the ball. The man has ice water in his veins; very smooth and needs to be pickier with his shot selection. But sometimes the guards chuck one up when the clock winds down and it's wasted. I'm very glad we have OJ; I think the whole lineup might get shaken up after the break(JUST A FEELING......NO SOURCE!) and we'll see better utilization of OJ's talents.

Actually OJ is the one who said he spent this past offseason working on his PG skills.

There is something wrong with OJ Mayo, and this has gone on since his HS days. I've been following Mayo since he was in 7th grade dominating HS seniors in Kentucky before he transfered to North College Hill.

For a guy with his talent level, he does nothing but run through the motions for most of the game. He takes bad shots, tries to be a PG and get others involved in the game but rarely sets players up for assists. Its sad almost, then at some point in the game he finds the drive and is just unstoppable he can do it all on the court. That is what seperates him from becoming like Kobe, Kobe plays with the drive to win the entire game and that drive just gets more intense the closer the score is. Like mgrizz said, OJ has ice water flowing through his veins and is smooth of a player as you will find in the NBA. He plays like he knows hes better than you, and those same qualities can be found in a guy like Kobe. If OJ finds his drive to be a winner then he will be one of the Top 5 players in the NBA, hes a complete player who just doesn't play like he should.

The better way to utilize Mayo's talents is to build the team around Mayo, and Memphis is not going to do that.

Like in my other post, he doesn't seem like hes 100% focused on the game but if he realized he had to carry the team then maybe he might get more focused. Based on overall skill alone I'd take Mayo over every SG in the NBA other than Wade & Kobe right now.

90% of the people on this thread have probably not even seen Mayo play. He's a very good player who has a very high ceiling. It's unfair to compare him to Kobe but remember this. Kobe average around 7-8 points a game his rookie season and sat the bench. If he was the world's greatest player out the gates, he would have been starting and putting up 25 5 5 right? Give the guy a break he's still young and playing on a team where two other players take a majority of the shots. When Mayo was in high school they compared him to Lebron James. The kid's got skill.

Fans in Minny dont like him i get that. But dont just make up stuff because of that fact. he takes 15 shots and scores 18 ppg. And he is not a pg we all know that. But he IS better than Cory Brewer. You guys are happy with Kevin and we are happy with OJ GET A LIFE AND GET OVER IT

No i dont think he is going to be Kobe but is that a bad thing? Kobe is a top 2 SG of all time at the least. Just because he isnt going to be Kobe doesnt mean he wont be good.

I agree.

But wasnt Kobe the youngest player in NBA History? He started his NBA career as a 17 year old.

OJ doesnt compare to LeBron at all. I think people just gave him that comparison for how much better he was over everyone in HS, he played 6 years of HS ball considering he spent 7th and 8th grade at a Kentucky Senior High.

that was also a time when you could come out of high school, and the words, "upside", and "youth" werent the lead words in scouting reports. Mayo also went to a terrible team, Kobe to a very good team. Mayo was also more NBA ready at 21 (yes, he was old for a 1 year and out player) than an 18 year old Kobe. But Mayo does not have Kobe's height, athletic ability, or desire to attack the rim. He literally reminds me of Ben Gordon. The Mayo hype was compared to LeBron, but by Mayo's senior year in high school, the hype had cooled compared to LJ, and in his one year in the Pac 10, of which Love, Westbrook, Lopez, and company played just as well or better, it was shown he is a very good talent, but probably going to end up a great shooter, and that is about it.

as a Wolves fan, I am happy with the trade, but Mayo would be a MONSTER upgrade at our wing positions. That isn't even debatable. I have my issues with Mayo, and was very glad we got Love and change for him, but I would never call Mayo a scrub. Far from. He will find a niche as a 20 ppg scorer who is a dead eye shooter. But what else?

if you asked me last year, i would say he'll be a great player, maybe one day a top 5 player in the league, but considering the fact he hasnt really improved in his 2nd year, comparing to kobe is just insane.

it's not fair to say next kobe... kobe might be the 2nd best SG to have ever lived. and once kobe retires... he'll get better in people's mind, much like jordan has become impossible to scratch no matter what any one will do.

let him be him, not the next "name"

I'm a Detroit fan. So I've watched Gordon. Mayo is already better than Gordon. Arenas has never really been healthy so it's not a very fair comparison. Once again, I don't think many of you have watched Mayo play. If Rudy Gay was not on that team, his numbers would be much higher. Rudy Gay is an underrated player himself. In my opinion I think Mayo will eventually be better than Derrick Rose. That draft will be known for Mayo. He WILL be a superstar.

And hear we go again...Didn't bring up Corey Brewer and you do....Didn't bring up the Grizz or the Wolves and you do....Mayo will NEVER be more than a 18 and 3 guy. As Love will always AT LEAST be a 15 and 12 guy night in night out.

Did you lose a bet or something? Because the only reason somebody would create this thread is because they were forced to do so. I am not even going to dignify that question with a response.

I know this doesn't mean much because it was only the last 7 games but here is his shot selection points scored and assists in his last 7 games:

Feb 16: 5-11 15 points 2 assists
Feb 9: 7-18 16 points 4 assists
Feb 6: 7-14 16 points 4 assists
Feb 5: 4-14 11 points 1 assist
Feb 2: 4-15 10 points 4 assists
Feb 1: 3-11 9 points 1 assist
Jan 30: 8-19 17 points 3 assists

Very poor start to Feb while chucking up shots and not alot of scoring. Definatly doesn't get his team involved much either with the low assists.

Forgot to say that those last 7 games Kobe Bryant wouldn't have a stat line like that for one game especially 7 games in a row.

OJ Mayo=Brandon Roy

Good compare but i think OJ might become a lil better than Brandon. But at the end of the day is he jus OJ

You ever thought maybe that is what he is asked to do? I mean i think what he is doing is working for our team. Dont you say? All i am saying is if Minny is going to post stuff about him just make it factual. I mean dont let the facts get in the way of a good story. You act as if he cant improve. This is his second year. I think he still has a little bit time to improve.

he can improve. He will become a better shooter. I am posting facts bro. He will be a Ben Gordon/Reggie Miller. He is probably not going to be an all around player like Kobe/Wade, etc. It has nothing to do with my being a Minnesota fan. I was not a Mayo fan when he was at USC, and I was actually disappointed the Wolves took him at #3, although I understood he was regarded as the 3rd best talent, therefore they had to take him value wise.
Like I keep saying, Mayo is a fine player. But I see his ceiling as a 22 ppg shooter, and not much else besides decent on the ball defense. He wil be that 2nd or 3rd scoring option on a playoff team. And have a good career.
But to compare him to the best SG in the last 15 years is a bit much.

Because you said he takes 20 shots and scores 16ppg.... he takes 15 shots not 20 and scores 18ppg not 16 like you previously stated. And who said he is a pg? He is a sg.

And since that trade how is you guys teams been doing huh? Another great 24 win season. Yeap you guys really won huh?

Love is clearly the better player, so yep. Won

No

No? Why is Kevin Love #12 for PER? Why would he be top 3 in rebounding in the league if he played enough games this year? Double doubles nightly. Not to mention can actually pass as a big man. I guess I would rather have that guy that can "shoot the lights out" in OJ Mayo.

I don't think it's fair for him to be compared to Kobe.

yeah whoever said he is comparible to ben gordon is pretty accurate imo. but we'll see he could become more. Definitely not kobe though.

I never said he would be Kobe. Go ahead and read all my posts. And can we please put away the Love and Mayo comparison. You guys got what you wanted a pf to pair with your other pf. And we got who we wanted. Why is every time anybody brings up Mayo somebody brings up Love. GET OVER IT PEOPLE. If you say love is a better player then guess what? The Grizz are a better team and that is not even debatable

Well said ,Quett.....how can you really compare such different styles of players as OJ and Love? But you CAN compare the Grizzlies to the Twolves now.

nah dude, I was referring to the thread. You and me have never had an issue, not starting one now. And as far as the Grizz are concerned, they started their rebuild slightly before the Wolves did. It is only natural they are ahead right now. We can revisit who is the better team in a couple of years

you can compare players despite positions. Love is clearly more efficient and brings more to the table as an individual. But the team comparison, sure that is easy. wins/losses. You are 3 years into rebuilding, Kahn tore the team apart and started over with only Jefferson around. Like I said, we can revisit that in a couple of years, when our young core of Flynn, Love, Jefferson, and whatever comes of Rubio (either he is in uniform or he fetched us a good player), plus our picks this next year and tons of upcoming cash. And who knows. Gay may be wearing a Wolves jersey in November. Lots can change.
This thread was about Mayo, and him being the next Kobe. Not a good comparison. Standing by that. He will be an elite shooter. That is about all I see currently.

I was under the impression that you guys started rebuilding after you traded Garnett. And that was before the start of the 07-08 season. The same season we traded Gasol in that season.

So how did we start earlier?

But hey your right. the good thing about it is it will play out on the court.

Just because he looks and acts a bit like Kobe don't make him Kobe. He can however become a great shooter who plays at his own relaxing pace...and drains jumpers with veins of ice. Mayo reminds me of a more athletic Chris Mullin.
