Referee Tries to Block Kris Humphries’ Free-Throw (VIDEO)

There was some confusion on the court as Kris Humphries shot free-throws while guys were trying to sub into the game. So referee Courtney Kirkland did something completely insane to restore order: he tried to block Humphries’ shot.

(H/T: The Brooklyn Game)

    Why the hell would the ref deserve a fine?

  • spit hot fiyah

    it would have been comedy if he did the mutombo finger wag afterwards

    A ref should not mess around like that.
    Let him shoot that even if it doesn’t count. That could mess a player up for a minute if the ref blocked that shot.

    Best defensive play against the Nets all night!

    He fully slapped Hump’s face.. LOL! You even see the ref realize it right after.


    Plays better D than the Lakers backcourt! Has a ref ever gotten a 10 day before?

    No Sh!t! He could teach some of them to come over on help D like that!

    I still can’t tell from that angle if he did or not lol, but he may have. Didn’t notice that the first time. Still doesn’t deserve a fine for it though.

    This usually only happens to whoever is playing the Lakers at Staples.

  • Max

    Still a better defender that Bargs.

    lolll so hilarious but also so unnecessary. ref wanted a little shine, that’s for sure, but i love it all the same.

    The ref was fullfilling a childhood dream–blocking a big, white, nba player’s shot. Fun stuff. Now, if he had tried that against DeMarcus…

  • RayJr

    or Amir Johnson…

    Peter Pan!

  • mhm

    be funny if humphries missed that free throw

  • mhm

    the ref didn’t do his usual stretches before the game so he was just doing it then

    I don’t udnerstand how does he not get fined, it sets out a dangerous precedent, joke or not. Players get fined for almost anything these days, I can’t see why refs should not be held responsible for their actions.
