Antonio Harvey (born July 6, 1970) is a retired American professional basketball player.
Born in Pascagoula, Mississippi, Harvey attended Southern Illinois University (1988–89), Connors State College (1989–90), the University of Georgia (1990–91), and Pfeiffer University (1991–1993). He was bypassed in the 1993 NBA draft. After playing over the summer 1993 with the Atlanta Eagles of the USBL, he signed as free agent with the Los Angeles Lakers in 1993, for whom he started on opening night of the 1993-94 season. In 1995, Harvey was in the NBA Slam Dunk Contest. In the contest, he was famed for when he waited until the final seconds to do a 360 degree, free throw line dunk, but missed it, ending on 4th place. This led to a surprised expression from former teammate Shaquille O'Neal. He played with five other NBA teams, as well as in Greece, Spain, Poland and Italy.
