O.J. Mayo Ejected For Punching Greg Stiemsma In Throat

Maybe it was an elbow that Bucks guard O.J. Mayo threw at Pelicans big man Greg Stiemsma, after the two players got tangled up in a screen and Mayo took what appeared to be an unintentional shot to the head from Stiemsma.

Maybe it was a punch.

Whatever the case, it drilled Stiemsma in the throat, and you can’t (deliberately) do that. So, Mayo was of course ejected from Friday night’s game and surely has a suspension coming his way as well.

Not that the Bucks’ front office would have any issue with a Mayo suspension, as key Bucks players missing time would only help the organization’s tanking efforts. Milwaukee currently holds a 12-49 record (good for a sexy .197 winning percentage), giving them the NBA’s worst record by three games, and the inside track for the most ping-pong balls in the 2014 NBA Lottery.
