Humphries Gets Denied (By The Ref)!

By Jeff Case

In the last two nights, we’ve had some somewhat wacky stuff going on in the NBA with players and officials. First, on Monday night, we had the whole Amir Johnson-David Jones free-throw line incident with the ball after a made free throw. (Johnson was suspended a game for his actions by the NBA, which included chasing after Jones and throwing his mouthpiece at him).

Then comes Wednesday night and, once again, we’ve got the Raptors involved and a player at the free throw line. This time it’s not a Raptor at the line, but an ex-Raptor: Kris Humphries. Humphries, as you’ll see above, is all set to shoot the first of two shots with 7:42 left in the fourth quarter. But just as he gets the ball up, in comes referee Courtney Kirkland like Tayshaun Prince on Reggie Miller from the 2004 East finals and grabs the ball out of Humphries’ hands.

As The Brooklyn Game blog points out, Kirkland was trying to stop Humphries from shooting while subs were attempting to enter the game. Sure, there’s that whistle around your neck that can be used … but this was clearly a creative way to stop a free throw.
