As an eight-year veteran, O.J. Mayo has taken on a leadership role with the young Bucks this season. On Saturday, however, he provided his teammates with a perfect example of what not to do when dealing with officials.
After he didn't get a call on a drive against Karl-Anthony Towns, Mayo waited for a stoppage to plead his case to a referee. He must have said something that was out of line because he immediately received a technical. Instead of stopping then, he continued to jaw at the official and got ejected. Then he made a bad situation even worse with the way he reacted to the ejection.
Mayo knows better. Not only did he leave his team shorthanded for the game but a suspension, fine, or both could be on the way.
