Basket Case

Former Perth Wildcats basketball player James Harvey – who played some ball in Israel as previously reported on this blog – has revealed the reason why he returned to Australia: a suicide bombing.

West Sydney Razorbacks star James Harvey has told the Sydney Morning Herald that a terrorist bomb in Israel helped him make the decision to return to the Philips Championship.

 

Harvey told the Herald’s Harriet Alexander that when he discovered after returning from training one night that a suicide bomber had killed 15 people at his local market, the decision to return to Australia was made a lot easier.

 

“That was the nail in the coffin,” Harvey said. “To be honest, I wouldn’t say I was really loving it over there, but I would have hung in there and I could’ve got through the year.”

I would have thought the fact that he was dropped from his club due to poor form might have been a reason.

 

Meanwhile, I’m thinking that the title of the article in which Harvey discloses his fear of suicide bombings is rather ill conceived: Harvey terrorising opponents.
