Video: Referee Courtney Kirkland Tries to Block Kris Humphries’ Shot During Nets vs. Raptors

On Wednesday night, for the first time in a long time, something interesting happened at a Toronto Raptors game. No, the home team didn’t shock the world and actually win (they’re 4-19 now, in case anyone is wondering) – it was something less shocking than that.

In the fourth quarter of yesterday’s game, Kris Humphries went to the line to shoot a couple of free throws. Only before Humphries could his shots off, referee Courtney Kirkland swooped in and inexplicably tried to block him.
