Found January 22, 2014 on Celtics Life:
PLAYERS: Joel Anthony
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
This was filmed prior to last night's game, but gives you an extended interview with Joel Anthony, who comes to Boston with few expectations.

If you are out there and want to share why you think Anthony will help this team, please feel free to comment below.Video courtesy of the Boston Celtics.
