From Larry Brown Sports:

NBA referee Courtney Kirkland treated us to one of the more humorous moments of the season when he got a little too aggressive while trying to stop Kris Humphries from attempting a free throw.

The Brooklyn Nets forward was at the line to shoot free throws in the fourth quarter against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night when Kirkland sprang in out of nowhere and tried to give him the Dikembe Mutombo treatment.

According to The Brooklyn Game, Kirkland was just trying to prevent Humphries from shooting before a substitute entered the game. Humphries made both his attempts and finished with 11 points in the Nets’ 94-88 win. We’re thinking Kirkland could have used a subtler method.

Now I've Seen Everything

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...

Astros players upset with Mark Appel's promotion

More than most sports, baseball is about “earning your spot.” Players have to work their way through four or five levels of the minors before getting their chance in the big leagues, and some guys wait close to 10 years before they get their shot. So it’s at least understandable when players get upset over a specific player getting the benefit of the doubt, or getting a promotion...
