Battier Wins Floor Burn Tournament

<br />With over 100,000 votes being cast during the length of the tournament, the winner of the first annual Floor Burn Tournament is Shane Battier. It was a wild week of voting as Pistons fans thought Jason Maxiell had this tournament locked up after the first few days only to see Battier have a huge surge and secure the win by the end of the week.
