Yeah, Mayo played with Kobe one on one also during last summer at team USA camp. Kobe is just trying to take Mayo under his wings because he realizes that he will pass the torch to Mayo just like MJ passed it to Kobe.
Kebab Stall. Rookie Mayo is compared to a Veteran Joe Johnson who is still basically in his prime that is telling you something.
To the person who said Mayo's numbers as a rookie were better than Wade's. That is true, but Wade made such a HUGE jump during his second year. That made him the Wade he is now. A household name. I hope Mayo can make that jump, but I don't see how he can with Conley dribbling 24/7.
