OJ Mayo accused of not paying $19K Private Jet bill

When you’re a professional athlete, flying is probably stressful. Many are too big for the seats – even in first class sometimes – who wants to be bothered with lines, baggage check in fees, etc. I guess it’s much more practical for some to fly private. That had to be the thought process of Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo. Mayo apparently used private as his preferred method...

OJ Mayo Sued For Drugs & Not Being Able to Pay For Private Jet

I struggle to understand why athletes put themselves in situations where they’re likely to be sued wrecking something, lack of payment, or both. Bucks guard OJ Mayo is being sued by a charter airline company for $19K after Mayo allegedly could pay for the private jet, and likely smoked it out with his buddies. Milwaukee Bucks star O.J.

O.J. Mayo’s ambitious reverse lay-up goes over backboard

O.J. Mayo played a solid game with 19 points in the Milwaukee Bucks’ win over the Sacramento Kings, 108-107. But this is one shot attempt he probably wants to forget. Mayo was doing so well that he tried to do this Dr. J-like lay-up. It didn’t go so well: I mean, it looked really good until the part where the ball went over the backboard. Yikes. But at least, your team won...

NBA injury culture and what Milwaukee will look like without Jabari Parker

Just last week on one of my favorite basketball podcasts, NBA After Dark, the Grantland co-hosts brought up media coverage of NBA injuries and the spectacle of mourning for wounded players.

Yes, worse than even the vigorously rebuilding Philadelphia 76ers. And...
