Fox Sports Wisconsin "O.J. Mayo has no desire to talk about his disastrous first season with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Fox Sports Wisconsin "O.J. Mayo could sense something was wrong by the emotion in his brother's voice on the other end of the phone. The pain of knowing a family member thousands of miles away needs support is a hopeless feeling. Todd Mayo was about to enter his sophomore season at Marquette when he had to sit in..." October 25

The Sixer Sense "I think we can all agree on the fact that the Sixers have a very busy offseason ahead. They have holes to fill and puzzle pieces to be put together.

ESPN Dallas "The buzz coming out of Minnesota is that O.J. Mayo could be a prime summer target for new Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders.

Dallas Morning News "Take one look at 1-for-13 shooting from the field, and it’s easy to write off O.J. Mayo’s showing against Chicago on Saturday as one of his bleakest of the season. But nobody in the Mavericks’ locker room saw it that way. Mayo clearly was bothered by the thick shoulder harness he wore to..." March 31
Fort Worth Star-Telegram "O.J. Mayo was limited to the non-contact portion of Friday’s Dallas Mavericks practice before leaving to have an MRI on his left shoulder, which he injured Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Dallas Morning News "O.J. Mayo was having a sterling night until he came down awkwardly late in the third quarter and came up favoring his right ankle.

Dallas Morning News "After last Tuesday’s home loss to Milwaukee, during which O.J. Mayo had a team-high five turnovers, Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said “I think the important thing that O.J.’s got to understand is he’s got to keep the game simple. He’s not a creator.” Well, on Wednesday night, playing with a..." March 07
Dallas Morning News "Mavericks’ gaurd O.J. Mayo spent the first four seasons of his NBA career playing for Memphis.

Dallas Morning News "The Mavericks have gorged this season on a long list of sins. Ill-timed turnovers. Bad rebounding. Inability to defend. Losing. Crunch-time failures. More losing. On Fat Tuesday, they got a good, long film lesson on all of the above. So when Lent starts Wednesday, they can give all that bad..." February 13
Mavs Moneyball "What do I expect from OJ Mayo? That's what I was thinking, sitting in the ashes of another "must-win" game that slipped, specifically, from OJ Mayo's fingers. I've never really watched anyone like OJ, he's one of those guys for whom the eye test doesn't work. He's the Mavs' best three-point..." February 12
Dallas Morning News "O.J. Mayo poured in 28 points Wednesday night against Portland. It was the most he’d scored since Jan. 2, when he had 30 in a loss at Miami. It was his high game in a victory since the 40-point night he had in Houston on Dec. 8. Of course, the losses had pretty heavily outweighed the win since..." February 07
Dallas Morning News "O.J. Mayo called it like he saw it, although he probably was a little too harsh on himself. Mayo went to the free-throw line Thursday night with 43 seconds left and the Mavericks down 98-96. It was similar to the situation Mayo had in Philadelphia earlier this season, when he missed the first..." February 01
Dallas Morning News "O.J. Mayo tried his best to guard Chris Paul for much of Wednesday night's loss to the Clippers.

January 10
Fort Worth Star-Telegram "O.J. Mayo's first game in Memphis as an opposing player for the first time wasn't close to being a masterpiece.

Dallas Morning News "When O.J. Mayo was in Memphis for four seasons, he settled into a place that was not near the touristy hustle and bustle of Beale Street. "I was about 25 minutes out [from the arena]," he said recently. That made it tough to have spur-of-the-moment shooting sessions in the evening, when..." December 21
Dallas Morning News "O.J. Mayo had 24 points, but it was the nine turnovers he contributed to the Mavericks' total of 28 that had him most disturbed after the 117-115 double-overtime loss to Boston. In his role as the Mavericks' go-to man in Dirk Nowitzki's absence, Mayo has been a solid scorer and, at times, big..." December 13
Arizona Republic "O.J. Mayo has not been around Phoenix for the pains of the skidding Suns' search for a go-to player that they do not have. It has been quite enough for the Suns to see Mayo become the league's eighth leading scorer and second most accurate and most prolific 3-point shooter for a $4 million..." December 07

They are learning fast, though, that some aspects of this early season science project are things they hope to keep throughout the season. O.J...." November 16
Dallas Morning News "The Mavericks had so many things to be happy about on Saturday night that it was hard to list them all.

November 04
Fort Worth Star-Telegram "OJ Mayo felt pressure coming off the bench the last two seasons for the Memphis Grizzlies.

Fort Worth Star-Telegram "For guard O.J. Mayo, he was not in a "show me the money'' mood during free agency this summer.

Memphis Commercial Appeal "An unheralded yet potent bunch of reserves is why the Grizzlies were tabbed by several national pundits as a dangerous opponent entering the playoffs.
