With 7:42 remaining in the fourth quarter of the
epic matchup between the Nets and the Raptors, Brooklyn’s Kris Humphries went to the line for a couple of free throw
After receiving the ball from one of the officials and
beginning his shooting motion, the baseline referee realizes that for whatever
reason, they weren’t ready for him to shoot.
Instead of simply
whistling the play dead, the official runs at Humphries and tries to block the
free throw attempt.
Humphries has enough problems with opposing teams’ fans;
the last thing he needs is to get his shot blocked by an official to add fuel to
that fire, so it’s probably a good thing that the ball never left his hands.
