    YouTube - Joel Anthony

    Caught his statline tonight. This might be a guy to watch.

    5-5 from the field, 2-2 from the line for 12 points, 13 rebounds, 5 blocks in 35 minutes.

    He's pretty productive if he starts. I didn't realize he was from Montreal. The guy has a knack for playing physical and blocking shots. At 6'9", 260 reminds me a little of Ben.

    I think he's the guy in the Heat jersey. He's behind the other player in both pictures. Nuff said. :stirthepot:

    Not much makes you feel as appreciated as being thrown into a deal as deadweight, put on a plane to Houston to be packaged with a 2nd rounder so they can get rid of you on the first possible flight to Philly before some NY doctor nixes everything and your next move is to board a flight back to Detroit.

    Welcome back, Joel!

    If and when he ever gets back into a game for the Pistons. The fans should show him some love and give him a standing O.

    I'd like to see Tom Gores and SVG hold a press conference welcoming Joel to the Motor City.

    This was brilliant. We got to give Monty a full medical before the offseason.

    I would like to see Joel give the "lots of teams have given up on me during my career, but I feel that I have found a real home in Detroit" speech.
