OJ Mayo shunned Celtics trade: 'I don't care about the banners'
 

 

The news that the Celtics had deals in place to trade both Ray Allen and Paul Pierce at the deadline can't be surprising . . . but the reasons they fell apart might be.

Celtics analyst, and ex-UConn and NBA star, Donny Marshall said O.J. Mayo, who was coming to Boston in the Allen trade (the proposal was Mayo and a draft choice for Allen), [SIZE="4"]scuttled things by making it clear Boston held no appeal to him.

"On the Memphis side, O.J. Mayo was the guy who pretty much said, 'It really doesn't interest me to be a Boston Celtic,' " Marshall told Carolyn Manno on Wednesday night's 'Sports Net Central'. "I think what he was told was, 'Think about the banners. Think about the history of this team,the legacy.' And O.J. Mayo basically said, 'I don't care about banners.'

"And that's how the players think today. It's not about the banners; it's about 'Where can I win? Where can I get paid the most?' "

You are a restricted free agent after this year, could you see yourself playing in a place like Boston?

Mayo: Yeah sure. If there is an NBA team Iíd be happy to play there. But right now my main goal is to play for Memphis and hopefully help get them their first NBA Championship.

Is there any stigma about Boston? In the past not all athletes have wanted to play in Boston, it took KG some convincing. Does that still exist?

Mayo: Iíve never heard of that. Itís always been one of the top organizations in basketball. Ever since you were a little boy start playing basketball you always heard about the Boston Celtics and Larry Bird, all the great players, itís always been a great organization.



Not even gonna pull up the quote where n*gga was like rondo the top pg he wanna play with in the league



Sike


"If I had to choose one to play with, I think it would be (Boston's) Rajon Rondo, just because he gets guys the ball in the right spots," Mayo explained when asked to name the best in the league. "Any scorer or shooter or big man would love to play with a point guard like that."


I'm good on oj tho. Would be great off the bench but Avery is looking to nasty on offense, and defense. Jesus off the bench >>>>

boston fans should be loving this deal

u were ripping memphis off

mayo (24 young and lots of upside still) and a draft pick for ray allen who has maybe a year or 2 max left


There's a reason why pretty much every memphis fan wanted the deal done, and every boston fan didn't.

Pretty much true

Allen is da gawd, but that contract and him getting older don't mix well.

I'd rather rock with Avery Bradley and let him keep improving alongside Ray. Mayo is a bi*ch n*gga who carries around that sense of entitlement

yeah because its LA. all players care about now a days are: good city, the beaches, places to film reality shows...history means nothing to them. just give them a city with nice weather year round and a chance to be on TV and they
