Rudy Gay Pretty Much Called O.J. Mayo Fat

Tuesday March 25th, 2014

Apparently O.J. Mayo isn't doing too well on his New Year's resolutions.  The Milwaukee shooting guard has been noticeably sluggish this season while he recovers from injuries.  When asked about Mayo's weight gain, Rudy Gay gave a pretty accurate analysis of Wisconsin life: "I guess when you're hurt in Wisconsin, you eat."

Kudos to Gay both for phrasing his opinions in the nicest way possible, and also for avoiding a too-obvious Mayo-naise pun.

For reference, here's a photo of Mayo from 2010:
