    OJ Mayo, Tony Allen Reportedly Fight on Grizzlies Plane.By FanHouse Staff

    Mayo (pictured) apparently owed Allen money from the game, and increasingly antagonized Allen over paying the debt. According to the report, Allen walked away to go to the bathroom, but was confronted by Mayo again when he returned. Eventually, the report says, Mayo inched close to Allen, and Allen hit him. Several players stepped in to stop the fight.

    "Tony warned [Mayo] to watch his mouth, and [Mayo] wouldn't do it and just kept going off on him," a source told Yahoo! Sports.

    The teammates met with coach Lionel Hollins on Monday about the incident, and spoke with each other on Monday and Tuesday, apparently settling the acrimony.

    In response to the report, the Grizzlies released a statement admitting to a "brief altercation" between Mayo and Allen, saying the matter is closed.

    The game the two were allegedly playing, "Boo-Ray," is the same card game Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton were reported to be playing last year, which led to their infamous locker room confrontation. After that incident, some teams starting banning gambling on team flights.

    As much as I would love to have Mayo play for the Pacers, he's a liability as far as his attitude, and the Pacers will try to stay away from the problem types. Despite that, I bet the Grizzlies will be a little quicker to move him now that he's causing problems.

    Our arena, their arena, Rucker park, it just doesn't matter. We're bigger, longer, younger, faster, and hungrier.

    Thabeet is being paid a lot of money for a lot of inactivity, as I've noticed. He has apparent potential, but I'd prefer to have something effective now (a la DeAndre Jordan). And if Mike Conley wasn't paid a ton, it'd be nice to bring the Indiana boy home. And on that note, maybe Greg Oden can get moved over here. Same concept, but all that injury...

    Oh, and this seems appropriate.



    well, maybe not "appropriate."

    So, you like players with no defense and no talent?

    We have a nice collection of those players here. Why not add a couple more?

    mayo has learned in important lesson. don't mess with guys that are really tough. evidently mayo was in allen's face and allen hit him 5 times before anyone could step in. OJ might want to choose his battles more wisely in the future. plus he needs to pay his losses no one like a welsher.
