Rockets’ Harrell helps save guy in overturned car


Houston’s Montrezl Harrell is a good Samaritan, too.

The rookie second-round pick of the Rockets is a former Louisville player and was in the city when he came upon a nasty accident. University of Louisville sports information director Kenny Klein tweeted out what happened next (hat tip NBA reddit).

Well done.

Harrell, a 6’8″ power forward, impressed at Summer League, averaging 14 points and 6.7 rebounds a night, showing off his high-motor game. He’s going to have a little trouble cracking the rotation on a very good Houston team, but his energetic style may make it hard for Kevin McHale to keep him on the bench.
