Antonio Harvey


1993-94 (#40) 27 2.6 2.2
1994-95 59 3 1.7

Forward, #40


Perhaps Antonio Harvey’s most notorious moment in his two seasons with the Lakers came during the 1995 All-Star slam-dunk contest. At the time, Harvey was only the third member of the Lakers to take part in the contest (Shannon Brown became the fourth in 2010).

Before his final dunk of the contest, Harvey left the ball on the court while using his hands to encourage the crowd to make noise. When there were just under 10 seconds remaining on the clock, Harvey picked up the ball and launched into a 360-degree dunk -- only to miss the rim completely.

The 6-foot-11 forward/center averaged 2.9 points and 1.9 rebounds with the Lakers. He played six more seasons in the NBA.
