3 Memphis Grizzlies are on the Just Released NBA All-Star Ballot.
They are, the expected, Rudy Gay,
The unexpected Mike Conley.
And, the Fabulous O.J. Mayo.
If you weren't too sure about Memphis General Manager Chris Wallace' Move to try to acquire a future Super Star by trading Mike Miller and 5th pick Kevin Love to Minnesota...then the show Mayo is putting on lately has got to change your mind.
In the Grizzlies last 4-games, all on the road, Mayo scored 21, 28, 31, and 33-points respectively..
He's the First Rookie since LeBron James in 2003 to have back to back 30 point games..
He hit 11 in a Row, and 19-points in the 4th quarter last night to lead the Grizz to a near Comeback victory at Phoenix.
Mayo is shooting 50% from the floor, 52% from 3..
For his part, Mayo is modest about his success.
Mayo says everybody is capable of getting it done in the offense the Grizzlies run.
He says the team pushes Defense first and foremost, and that the turnovers and deflections it creates helps lead to the offensive production. It all starts with defense.
Mayo and the Grizzlies host the New York Knicks Wednesday night at FedExForum.
