This is a problem most of our readers won’t ever have to deal with.

High school basketball player D.J. Harvey chased down a fast-break in a game this week. Unfortunately for Harvey, when he went for the swat, the DeMatha Catholic sophomore flew a little too close to the sun.


I hate it when that happens.

Powerhouse basketball schools like Arizona and Gonzaga are actively courting this young man — and his explosive athleticism — and it’s easy to see why.

This type of accident is unheard of. Why? BECAUSE MOST HUMAN BEINGS CAN’T JUMP THAT HIGH!

Hopefully Harvey wasn’t seriously injured, as I’m looking forward to seeing him develop as a player. If he and Kwe Parker both turn pro in three years, then the NBA dunk contest might finally be exciting again.
