Mavs guard OJ Mayo talked with the media this morning in Barcelona, where Dallas plays against Barça on Tuesday. When asked by HoopsHype about his last couple of seasons with the Grizzlies, he had this to say:
"I was disappointed because in my life I had always exceeded expectations. But (in Memphis), it was a little bit of a failure. I have to stay focused every night, practice hard, do extra work and stay prepared so that it won't happen again.
"I felt like I could have done better (in Memphis). Starting and then moving to bench would be tough on everybody. I had started all my life, so that was something I had to adjust to. It's a new opportunity in Dallas, so I have to play hard and hold my ground."
