Video: A ref tries to block Kris Humphries' free throw

By Royce Young | NBA writer

The Raptors are maybe the worst defensive team in the league. Maybe they should give ref Courtney Kirkland a contract. He's at least willing to contest shots.

In the fourth quarter of Brooklyn's game against Toronto, Kirkland did maybe the weirdest thing anyone has ever seen a referee do: He tried to block Kris Humphries' free-throw attempt.

Here's the story, via The Brooklyn Game: Some subs were trying to get in the game and Kirkland wanted to stop Humphries from shooting his free throw before they got in. Why? I don't know. But he seemed very determined to do so.
