O.J. Mayo Punches Greg Stiemsma In Neck, Gets Ejected in First Quarter

Life isn’t fun when your team has 12 wins and 49 losses.

So maybe that’s why Milwaukee Bucks G O.J. Mayo overreacted in Friday night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, after a hard pick was set on him by C Greg Stiemsma. It was a game the Bucks would go on to lose, 112-104, but it was what happened on this particular play that mattered.

After Stiemsma set a screen on Mayo during the first quarter of the game, the Bucks guard tripped, regained his balance and stepped forward and punched the big guy right in the neck/throat area, which isn’t very nice.

Watch the video and witness the cheap shot which got Mayo ejected.
