Mayo Back In What Could Have Been Home (Video)
O.J. Mayo is a fourth year shooting guard for the Grizzlies. Mayo played one season at USC, but was involved in controversy when it was determined that he received improper benefits for the 2007-2008 season. Eventually, the NCAA vacated all of USC's wins for that year.
Mayo was originally drafted by the Timberwolves, with the third pick in the 2008 draft, but was sent to the Grizzlies as part of the Kevin Love trade. Mayo has been a solid NBA player, with a career scoring average of 16.0 points per game. But, he has absolutely been outplayed by Love, who has been an All-Star and NBA rebounding champion.
Wednesday, Mayo joined many of his teammates in signing numerous autographs outside of the Graves 601 Hotel, in downtown Minneapolis. Ironically, this setting is located directly across the street from Target Center, the building that would have been Mayo's home arena if the Love trade had never taken place.
The scene is on display in this ifollosports.com original video.
