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.”
