words_Brandon Richard As a high school phenom, Grizzlies guard Ovinton J'Anthony Mayo drew early comparisons to LeBron James. However, his transition into a star NBA player has been more steady in comparison to LeBron's immediate league impact. In two NBA seasons, OJ has started every game for Memphis, finishing third and sixth in minutes played. His averages in scoring, rebounds, assists, and steals remained consistent, but he did see an increase in shooting percentage and a decrease in turnovers. The Grizzlies finished with a surprising 40-win season, and look to build on that moving forward under the leadership, production, and reliability of Mayo. Late in the season, Mayo took the court in his Air Max A Lot player exclusives. Though the initial response to the shoe wasn't too favorable, the Mayo PE seemed to sway a lot of opinions. The home pair boasts a white leather upper with a blue gradient fill on the "AIR" logo on the side. Navy hits the tongue, heel, midsole, and outsole. University blue works on the laces, inner liner, and visible air unit. The final touch can be seen with a yellow border around the blue gradient AIR logo. As we've seen with most of the recent Nike PEs, the away pair uses the same color cues, but subs black leather in for white. Both pairs also have Mayo's logo embroidered into the back.
