OJ Mayo Frustrated With the Bucks’ Lack of Identity

Caron Butler isn’t the only unhappy Milwaukee Buck these days — OJ Mayo is also frustrated, and says the team has no plan from game-to-game. Per the Journal Sentinel:

“It’s the same thing it’s been night in and night out,” Mayo said. “It’s been the same result, whatever the game plan has been.

“It’s hard to get a rhythm when you don’t know what’s going to happen for you night in and night out. You may get 6 minutes, 30 minutes. There’s no staple to what we’re doing. You can hang in there, compete and keep it close.

“If you don’t have a backbone to what you do, whether it’s going to be a defensive thing, an up-tempo thing, a pound-it-in-the-paint thing, a drive-and-kick thing. We’ve got to find a staple as a team.”

The Bucks have not won a game since New Year’s Eve when they defeated the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center.

And they are well on pace to set a franchise record for futility. The lowest number of victories in franchise history is 20, set by the 1993-’94 team.

“You look around the league, you’ve got some teams that are defensive teams,” Mayo said. “You’ve got some teams like (Houston) and the Warriors that are offensive-minded, like Portland and Denver, they’re going to get up and down, spread the floor. You’ve got teams like Memphis, Chicago, physical, defensive-minded. Here we are at game 40, we don’t know what we are right now. It’s going to be hard to collect wins when you don’t know what to expect.”

  • Lloyd

    What’s Mayo talking about? They do have an identity..being the worst team in the League. Expect to lose buddy. That’s the game plan.

  • anon

    OJ been taking his frustrations out on the cheeseburgers lately. He’s looking heavy and slow out there.

  • Nathan Shane Long

    Boy has OJ Mayo career gone down the toilet or what he ain’t been the same since Tony Allen beat his ass

  • zpack

    Ovintin J’Anthony Mayo. Not much better, but still.

  • zpack

    OJ has been visibly out of shape. He is taking ill advised shots and slower than ever on defense. He has to start fixing the problem with himself first.

  • spit hot fiyah

    i mean, it’s an animal that seams rather peaceful. what type of identity does he want it to have?


    Foreal! I drafted OJ around 5th round, effin up my fanatasy team yo!

  • Jake

    It’s hard to call out your team for not having an identity when you yourself don’t even have one.

    bring george back as coach!!! those bucks were bad ass!!
    after they get number one pick i mean.

  • Ugh

    Better than being names after OJ Simpson.

  • Ugh

    He has a point.

    I mean, is it an antlered, forest-dwelling dueling machine or is it something that stands around to get shot and stuffed?

    Is it little Bambi or is it the king of Farthing Wood?

    And come on, what species is it? Is it a deer? An elk? A moose? A reindeer? Hell, I don’t even know if it’s a buck and a stag at the same time!


  • Biggggg in here

    Ha, he should be frustrated with himself. He was good entering the league then declined prematurely due to inconsistent play.

  • Anthony

    That moniker belonged to the Clippers in the late 80s early 90s…
    The Bucks are just a lower tier, small market team, and until someone buys them moves them and really probably pumps about 500 mil or so into them they will remain that way. Send them to Vegas….they’ve been wanting a team the last few years.
