O.J. Mayo Rips The Bucks, Says Team Has “No Direction”

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Toronto Raptors

O.J. Mayo chose to sign with the Milwaukee Bucks, so it’s kind of hard to feel bad for him.

At 7-33, the Milwaukee Bucks have the worst record in the league and are 3.5 games behind the Orlando Magic for the second worst record.

Mayo is fed up with his team’s lack of consistency and their lack of identity.  According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Mayo ripped the organization and head coach Larry Drew for being inconsistent in doling out minutes and a gameplan.

“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.”

Mayo signed a three-year, $24 million deal with the Bucks this past off-season, and was supposed to be the No. 1 scoring option for a young and building Bucks squad.

May is frustrated with the minutes and the lack of something for the Bucks to hang their hats on.

“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.”
