Jason Maxiell is a former first-round pick who played for the Detroit Pistons for eight years before two short one-year stints in Orlando Magic and Charlotte Hornets.
During his 10-year NBA career, the 6’7” University of Cincinnati alum averaged a modest 6 points and 4 rebounds per game. Maxiell was so intimidating in the NBA, and who blocked shots so viciously, that Pistons fans coined the slogan "Jason Maxiell Eats Babies."
Having spent a decade in the NBA, Jason Maxiell joined the Tianjin Gold Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association back in 2015.
During a game back in 2016, while playing for the Tianjin, Maxiell took a hard hit to the head from Shandong center Wu Ke (6-10, 220) during Wednesday's game. Here's a video of the incident — the Chinese center was lucky Michael Beasley came to the rescue.
