Jason Maxiell Appreciation
 
Maxiell has signed a two year contract for the Magic today, meaning his run with the Pistons has come to an end.

I just want to say that Max has been one of my all-time favorite pistons - largely due to his passion, motor, effort, hustle, aggression, determination and attitude. Was always one of the least talented players on the roster, but is a great example of hard work paying off, and really reflects on the culture the Pistons have always promoted. Blue collar basketball.

Off the court he is great, great dude. The way he stood by his girlfriend at the time and now wife, Brandy, while she got diagnosed with ovarian cancer - and helped her overcome it - whilst playing at the highest level. That's a good dude right there... :bowdown:

My favorite Maxiell highlight, and there were many to choose from!

Good dude, I'm glad he has a spot in the NBA but I wasn't the hugest fan of him on our roster.

Ben Wallace Lite. I was really excited when we drafted him in 2005 I believe. Someone young to spell Ben Wallace. A motor like no other and played bigger than his size. I loved when he dunked with those long arms. Boy was straight up ferocious.

I always had higher expectations for him when he played for us, but no doubt I loved him as a Piston and wish him the best of luck in Orlando and hope he carves out a big role for himself.:applause: :applause: :applause:

I would have loved to see what he would have been able to do if he were say, 6'10
