Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries was in the middle of taking a foul shot during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's NBA game against the Toronto Raptors when it was blocked, which is strange enough. What makes it even stranger, however, is that the shot was blocked by a referee.
Referee Courtney Kirkland came in to prevent the foul shot by Humphries in order to allow a late substitution by the Raptors. Aside from the fact that we've never seen a referee block a shot before, we have to wonder - why didn't Kirkland simply use his whistle in this situation?
In the end, the Nets beat the Raptors 94-88.

There Kris Humphries was, minding his own business, preparing to shoot a free throw.
Then, out of nowhere came referee Courtney Kirkland, all but swatting the Nets centers’ attempt into the seats.
It appears that due to a miscommunication, the Raptors were attempting to make a substitution, and therefore the former Mr. Kardashian had to wait before attempting to shoot. Kirkland...

The Toronto Raptors games have had some funny video footage lately. First it was Amir Johnson and his ball wrestling with the ref, now it is Kris Humphries almost getting rejected by a ref. See for yourself.

Wednesday’s Raptors- Nets game featured a new player and way to stop play. The Raptors were trying to sub in at the time of a Kris Humphries free throw attempt. Referee Courtney Kirkland, rather than blowing his whistle, went in for the rejection instead.It appears that Kirkland has always wanted to swat a player’s shot during a game, because it looks like he’s practicing...
Not sure what the NBA referees a drinking on these days, but it seems like they are going crazy during Raptors games. Two days ago we had the ref that got in a wrestling match over a ball after a free throw, now we have referee Courtney Kirkland trying to block Kris Humphries when he's about to shoot a free throw. Craziness. The only thing I can see that's happening...
Like a late time out in baseball where the pitcher still follows through -- why the hell did NBA ref Courtney Kirkland feel the need to run at and jump to block Kris Humphries free throw attempt last...

Look at the ups on ref Courtney Kirkland as he tries to block the Net’s Kris Humphries’ free throw. Courtney needs to cut back on the caffeine, that was a bit of an over reaction.
The Big Leagues Free throws in Toronto Raptors games have suddenly become can't miss TV.
NBA referee Courtney Kirkland attempted to block a free throw attempt from Kris Humphries in the Nets-Raptors game Wednesday night in Toronto.
Why? Maybe because it's hilarious? Or maybe Kirkland's just a big Kim Kardashian supporter?
Whatever the case, here's video of the rejection attempt:

Oh, there are so many jokes that could work here.
Possibly the weeks best video highlight happened last night in the Brooklyn Nets/Toronto Raptors game.
That's when Nets forward, and former Mr. Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries was about to attempt a free-throw. But, referee Courtney Kirkland had waived in a player waiting to check in at the scorers table. And according to...
I've always heard that a good referee is one that you don't notice. A good referee will make the right calls and go about his job without making himself the center of the game. To be honest, with the referees in the NBA, this is quite rare. From Joey "Look at Me" Crawford to Dick "The Crypt Keeper" Bavetta these refs seem to try to make themselves...
