On October 13, the foreign aid registration information on the official website of the CBA League showed that the Liaoning Men’s Basketball Team was
Although he was named as "the nation's number one high school student" when he debuted, for reasons known to all, Mayo fell quickly during his peak period. After his comeback, he could only play in some low-level leagues around the world. CBA was once for him. All seem out of reach. If it weren't for the epidemic, Mayo might only serve as Stephenson's "spare tire" and would have few chances to play when the "junior brother" was suspended. But when the opportunity came, Mayo relied on his own efforts to seize the opportunity, which may be the best return for his prodigal son.
Although when he first joined the Liaoning basketball team, he was faced with the question of whether he could still have enough food, but Mayo quickly used a stable offensive output to dispel all doubts. In the regular season last season, Mayo played 15 games for Liaoning, averaging 36.4 minutes per game, contributing 28.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.5 steals. He played 6 games in the playoffs, averaging 41 minutes per game, contributing 27.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2 steals. Although the 33-year-old Mayo was obviously a little weak at the critical moments of some key games, it is fair to say that without Mayo, not to mention reaching the finals, even how far the playoffs can go, it is hard to say Very much.
It must be admitted that Mayo is no longer young, and his physical confrontation ability and stamina are not the same as those at his peak. However, Mayo has rich experience and he is very good at taking advantage of changes in rhythm to create opportunities, which also helps him save energy and use good steel on the blade. More importantly, Mayo has a steady three-pointer, and last season's three-point shooting percentage remained above 43%, which is of great help to the Liaoning basketball team.
After going through strong winds and waves, what people see in Mayo now is the light and breezy clouds washed out of lead. During the game, the expression on Mayo’s face rarely changed. If it weren’t for the “trash talk” against Fogg in the match against the North Control team, and the “runaway” after being maliciously stepped on by Wang Xinkai in the third game of the finals, people Can't feel his emotions at all. It is worth mentioning that Mayo is not without the ability to control the ball, but he is not greedy for the ball. Most of the game, he switches between with and without the ball at will, and at the same time is doing his best on the defensive end. Of course, his attitude is easily recognized by his teammates. Relying on these, Mayo won a new contract for himself. In the new season, I hope this low-key foreign aid can help Liao basketball continue to win.
