ESPN’s Outside The Lines ran a report on USC’s O.J. Mayo receiving illegal benefits from his first year in highschool all the way up until last year. In the last 4-5 years Mayo has received up to $30,000 in cash and gifts in exchange for a verbal agreement to sign with BDA management when he made it to the NBA.
There are two things in this story that crack me up.
1. BDA management actually paid out $200,000 for O.J. Mayo, but most of that money was taken and spent by the middleman, Rodney Guillory.
2. You HAVE to see the look on O.J.’s face when ESPN puts him on the spot questioning these allegations. It reminds me of Miguel Tejada’s interview with E:60 a few weeks ago. Check it out in the vid below….
The following video is O.J. Mayo’s carefully thought out response to the above report.
