Vote Jason Maxiell – Semifinals

by | Aug 18, 2008 | 39 comments

It’s time again Pistons fans, time to put the hurt on any opponent standing in Jason Maxiells’ way of winning the Hoops Addict Floor Burn Tournament.

This time it’s serious, plenty of Celtics fans are going to come out of the woodwork to vote against JMax to try to get a win for Leon Powe. It’s your obligation to do what you have to do to get it done for Jason. My guess is as long as he wins this round it’s a lock for the whole thing.

Let’s show Jason how much we appreciate him. VOTE HERE for Round 3 Action!

Spread the word!

    Nat’s right, Celtics fans are jumping all over this and Powe currently has 80% of the votes.

    C’mon Pistons fans, don’t let Mad Max go out like this.

    Just so you know Houston Fans are voting against Maxiell to help get Battier the win.

    When I put the link up Maxiell was down by more than 110 votes. Let’s do this.

    Help Spread the word.

    ^^ hahaha….okay this is just what i needed, because this summer is getting boring without the Pistons. Okay now people like you, un-classy bandwagon fans always coming on here talking crap just because you beat our team. Okay now it’s fact that you beat us, yes we allllll now. Yes us Pistons fans know that we got knock out the playoffs. But no disrespect, we have been one of the most consistent teams in the NBA (pistons, spurs, um maybe lakers). But we the Detroit Pistons haven’t been a lottery bond team for years, and i’m not trying to brag or nothing but it annoys me when people come and say we suck, but the truth is we have been a powerhouse for years. Now if i can reclaim i sworn there fans at the garden with paper bags over their faces because you were celtics fans. Now me being a 15 year old living in a state with a tough economy along as the rest of the world is; we Pistons fans still go out and sell out at the palace. You can say we suck all you want, but based on facts, all the advantage goes to Detroit. Thank-you and good night

    oh yeah one last thing. Where were you last season, and if you think the Pistons suck so much then why r u on here, what made you come here and put a childish un-threatening post like that, because you know you are out-numbered. I was actually rooting for the Celts in the finals because i was a KG fan and wanted to see him get his ring, along as Paul after hearing he got shot. So celts fan you need to get to know us before thrash talking, because we have the most loyal, friendly, and best fans you’ll ever meet.
    okay now i’m done. And as you see i didn’t use any profanity because i’m not here to cuss you out, i’m just pointing out what i feel as fact over years, instead of what you guys just accomplished in 20 years. I might be young, but i sho’ aint dumb 😉

    We Fans and Players of the Deee-troit Pistons have been through various battles………….but WE ARE COMING BACK TO GET WHAT WE LEFT..AND STUMP OVER THAT HUMP!!!!!!

    LET’S GO PISTONS AND LET’S GET THAT SHIP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Whatever to the classy Celtics fan, your team has won 2 less championships in the last 20 years than the Pistons. Everybody says the Pistons have nothing to show for their run, discounting the fact that they did in fact win a championship.

    Again, you stay classy Boston. Hey, did they fix those windows yet?

    ^^okay One: When have you’ve guys been this loud in the stadium…..yeah just this year. Hlaf of your fans weren’t even there last season.

    two: Boston is like Detroit, we have start players who are just getting older, not younger. But we both have strong benches

    three: Same thing for Detroit, being born and raised in Detroit/Michigan you are a Lions fans no matter how much you disss thme but we always love the lions.

    four: i would rather ocme up short knowing you only needed two more years, and going to the off season trying to find that extra push INSTEAD of not making the playoffs at all and always having to rebuild.

    i know this site is welcome for everyone including celtics fan, but im wondering, why waste time talking about your (celtics) team in a site that people doesn’t wanna hear it….UNLESS, somebodys desperate for an attention……lets see if he still celticsdavis still respond

    Seriously, Celtsr, you’re not making a lot of sence.

    Fluidics time line is relevant becaue the last 20 years happened in our lifetime. If you’re going to count the enitre history of the franchize than you’re bringing up championships that had nothing to do with your current team, its management, or you.

    By the way, you said you wouldn’t want a consistant team that comes up short every year. Sounds a lot like a very good football team that lost in last years super bowl.

    Just because there are 4 sport teams that your town roots for doesn’t mean that bandwagon fans don’t exist there. I know plenty of people in Michigan who have given up on the Lions, and in upper Michigan most people even root for the Packers.
    When the Lions hit their stride and win the Championship, it is we life fans who will enjoy it most and the ones who try to jump off the bandwagon will be held accountable for their lack of faith. The difference between our lions the last 20 years and your Celtics the last 20 years? Ford Field still sells out every game and fans still support their players all season long. The same can be said for the Pistons’ teal era. The Garden was quiet as a mouse for years befor last season and it barely filled to half capasity. Now that you have 3 perenial all stars people decide they want to come support them?

    News for you, Celticsr, it’s easy to cheer and root and wear your jereseys when your team is on top. It takes a city/state with plenty of true fans to support them just as enthusiastically when they’re down- way down.

    Really, Steve, there are classier ways to deal with bandwagon Trash talkers. It’s time you learn to be above the people you’re arguing with. This is an easy one to be above.

    *just ignores celtsrdavis*
    anyway Pistons fans. We have every way to beleive in the Pistons this year. But yeah um i think if we even think about a trade i think it should be @ the trade deadline. But now i don’t want a trade i just can’t wait to see some action with this team, and Sheed being silly in practices like he always do. Does anyone know when training camp starts and also when the open practice start. I’m planning on attending the first home game of the season or the second game at home. I CAN’T WAIT !!!

    Looks like Maxi is a lock for round 4 of the floor burn tournament. He also doubled his next opponent in votes which is no doubt somewhat due to Nat’s campaigning. If team Need4sheed holds its ground for two more rounds Maxi’s victory is in the bag.
