Shaun Livingston Ejected for Headbutting Referee

Shaun Livingston was upset that he didn’t get a foul call during the second quarter of the Warriors game against the Heat. Livingston, while being guarded by Heat guard Tyler Johnson, attempted a fadeaway on the left baseline with referee Courtney Kirkland standing a few feet away.

Livingston turned to Kirkland and immediately began gesturing that he was fouled on the shot. Watch the video below to see what happened:

The 32-year-old Livingston was drafted in 2004 and after a horrific leg injury in 2007, has evolved into one of the League’s most composed and dependable role players.

Kirkland, 43, has been refereeing NBA games since the 1999-00 season.
