Caron Butler blocked a shot from Serge Ibaka on Tuesday night during the Los Angeles Clippers’ loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but Ibaka was not nearly as embarrassed after the play was over as the official who was standing nearby. As you can see, the block sailed out of bounds and drilled one of the refs right in the dome, knocking him to the ground. The official laughed it off and was fine, but I have to ask — what was he watching? Considering he was a few feet from the play, you would have to assume he was watching to see if there was a foul when Ibaka put up his shot. However, it seems obvious that he didn’t even see the ball coming. Maybe I just don’t understand NBA officiating and he was responsible for watching another part of the play. In any event, this is a clip that is likely going to haunt the official for the remainder of his life.
