No. 4: O.J. Mayo

Once a high-school superstar, OJ Mayo is finally living up to his lofty expectations after becoming the No. 3 pick in the 2008 Draft. For the majority of the first four years of his career, Mayo’s talents were shaded behind a stacked Grizzlies roster. But after joining the Mavericks this season, Mayo has emerged as the best player on his new team in the absence of an injured Dirk Nowitzki. He is averaging a career-high in scoring and shooting a blistering 53.2 percent from the 3-point line. He is keeping the Mavericks floating around a .500 record despite Nowitzki’s injury. If he keeps this up and can help the Mavs improve their standings in the West, he could be a surprise first-time pick for the All-Star Game.
