Profile Info Page

Joel Vincent Anthony (born August 9, 1982, in Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian professional basketball player for the Miami Heat of the NBA, playing the center position.

Anthony attended Selwyn House School in Montreal from 1994 to 1997. He graduated from Emmanuel Christian School, class of '99. After Emmanuel, he attended Dawson College, where he was cut from the basketball squad.

By the time he graduated from Florida's Pensacola Junior College in 2004, however, he had come into his own on the court. He made the first team all-conference for 2003–04, averaging 9 points, 7 rebounds and 3.5 blocks per game.

At the University of Nevada, Las Vegas he really made a name for himself, helping lead the Runnin' Rebels to a 30–7 season his senior year, being named Mountain West Conference defensive player of the year and finishing second in the NCAA in shot-blocking.

Anthony made his Canadian national men's basketball team debut in the summer of 2008. He made a tremendous impact on the court for the Canadians, by setting both scoring and block shot records for an individual game. Canada however failed to qualify for the Beijing Olympics.
