Former Louisville and Rockets rookie Montrezl Harrell jumped into action near the University of Louisville on Saturday morning. Harrell came upon a scene of a overturned, smoking vehicle.

Harrell and others kicked out the window of the car, pulled the motorist out of the car, had a fire extinguisher at the ready and waited for emergency personnel to arrive. These are just the kind of instincts that can help him corral rebounds in big games and to serve as Superman's sidekick.

Harrell has a quite an eventful offseason, the Rockets drafted him with the 32nd pick in the 2015 draft -- averaging 16.5 points, 8 rebounds, 1 assist, 1.2 steals per game in 27.8 minutes during the summer league.
