It comes as no surprise that I love the effort and results of Jason Maxiell’s hard work this summer. I knew he was going to good last season when I saw what he could do the few times he was able to get some court time. I think the biggest thing I like about Maxiell’s game is his attitude. He knew what it would take to get some playing time and he has forced Flip to give him a chance this season. He didn’t wait for his time, he made it. Here is a great video on Maxiell’s emergence this summer, courtesy of FSN Detroit.
