Celtics 2014 Report Card: Joel Anthony

Now that the 2013-2014 season is over, it’s time to take a look at the performances of some of the members of this past year’s Boston Celtics. We are only going to be taking a look at players who were with the team for more than 20 games, and whose contracts are on the books for next season. So no Jordan Crawford, no Courtney Lee, and unfortunately, no Chris Babb. So let’s kick this thing off with a real winner…

Joel Anthony

PPG: 1.0

RBG: 1.5

Moment of the Year: Any time his face was shown on camera, because he looks ridiculous.

Anthony came over in the  Jordan Crawford deal and proceeded to eat money and time at the end of the C’s bench. On a team that has 10 other pieces already in placae, Anthony certainly has a fit. On the 2013-2014 Celtics, he could have been a ghost and no one would’ve known the difference.

His contract doesn’t make him too valuable as a trade-asset next season. Anthony has a player option in 2014-2015, which the Celtics want to avoid being responsible for in a year or so. I can’t see them keeping him around until the end of next season, and he would either be cut, or part of a trade as added baggage.

For all of the trash-talk I am doling out to Anthony, he has had a more successful NBA career up to this point than anyone could have imagined. He was a functional part of the Miami Heat’s first NBA championship in this run and has a second ring as a nice paperweight. But his time in Boston was short, insignificant, and hopefully almost over.
