Referee Attempts to Block Free-Throw Attempt

By December 13, 2012

Follow me on:

During the fourth quarter of last night's Nets/Raptors game, referee Courtney Kirkland attempted to block a Kris Humphries free-throw attempt.

Yes, you read that correctly.

There's something you don't see every day, huh?

Apparently Kirkland gave Humphries the ball without realizing that there were players waiting to enter the game... the Dikembe Mutombo impression was his way of stopping Hump from shooting so the sub could check in before the shot.

If only he had some sort of signaling device designed to get the attention of basketball players... a whistle, perhaps? Wait, what?
