After watching few miami games, I must say that this dude SUCKS at O.

I know some ppl don't play O but Joel, even if he is under the basket he can't dunk, shoot it , lay it in while he's 2 feet from basket.

And this year he sucks at D as well.


Useless player imo!

They should use more Pitman or Curry.

DAMN he sucks sooo much.

Get his *** out.

He is a big body to put on guys like howard, perkins, bynum in the playoffs. you need that in this league. you rather have maglore back ? lol

Definitely the easiest way to improve this team going forward. I think they're fine with Chalmers at the point (obviously they CAN upgrade but I don't think the NEED to). But Joel is definitely a hindrance out there. He is solid defensively, and he can fill his role pretty well...but most of the time he's just a liability.


He does have value though because of his defense. You can't have amazing offensive players at every position all the time.

Worst offensive in the history of pro-basketball hands down. He will be in street dress in at least 25 other teams. I can't believe he's in NBA. He's god awful and a severe pain the eyes. It's an insult to the game of basketball to pass a ball to him.

Like I mentioned in topic...while he's 2 feet from basket, he can't convert...

This maybe won't be fair comparison but still...

Ben Wallace, great D, sucks at O...but when you gave a dude the ball like 2 feet from basket...he dunked it...he didn't lose it...And that is all Joel has to do.

Joel isn't great at D, he is average at most, has his flashes here and there.

Damn today, he had fisher on him and his team mates didn't pass him the ball cuz they knew fisher would murder him below.

When this happens with your C...you should fire his ***.

I didn't say he was any good offensively, I'm just saying he has a role on the team, and he can do it well more often than not.

This is a top 3 scoring offense, even with him starting. They need him in there for his defense...they can afford to have one position on the court where they don't get any production out of.

Chicago had that last year at the 2. LA has had it for years at the 1. Boston has had it forever at the 5. OKC has it offensive liabilities at both the 4 and 5. Etc.

You don't need scorers at every single position, especially not when you have 3 elite scorers. He rebounds, plays hard and defends. He's a big body too.


It's the easiest position for them to upgrade, as I said...but I think we're exaggerating how much of a liability he is. He is horrendous offensively, but he's not crippling the Heat because of it.

The thing is, there a lot of centers out there that dont feel the heat needs. The whole mentality is that you have an extremely mobile athletic team top to bottom so that rotations are crisp and mistakes can be bandaged. Getting a guy who has some scoring would help but it would also not be the greatest fit. We need an athletic big man.

He is crippling them. Few times when Joel was on a floor, player that was guarding him didn't even pay attention to Joel, knowing he can't even score under the rim even if he was alone there. So that makes it 4 players vs 5.
And if opposing center can help to prevent guys like Bron and Wade from getting to the paint...that MAKES A GAME A LOT DIFFERENT!

Joel Anthony is one of those glue guys you would like to have but he is very limited offensively. Defensively, he is pretty good but undersize.

Pittman can do that as well. I bet he wants to prove himself so he would be doing all that too.

No...no he can't. You obviously haven't watched many Heat games if you think Joel doesn't play D and Pittman rebounds and plays D.

There's no question that Joel has no offensive game, but what he does on defense by blocking/altering shots and by hustling and keeping plays alive on offense is very valuable. Pittman and Curry haven't done anything in the time that they've been in to show they deserve more PT.

Wow, can't believe there's 6 pages of continuous ripping of Anthony's offense. I think we all get the point. lol

That being said - Anthony's main role in Miami is to anchor the defense underneath the basket. Though I do agree his offense is a liability, his defense easily outshines his offensive deficiencies. Which is good considering his front-court partner (Bosh) isn't regarded as a plus defender.
