Shaqtin' a Fool: Carlos Boozer Punches Ref

Admit it. We've all wanted to punch a ref before.

But then, cooler heads immediately prevail, and 99.9 percent move on.

As the latest installment of Shaqtin' a Fool points out, you can count Carlos Boozer among the minority who struck the wrong blow. Whether the slip was Freudian or freakishly fortuitous, he not only hit an NBA referee, but he also got 'em below the whistle.

Peripheral vision was never more important, nor lacking, than that little exchange. Boozer might want to check his side mirrors next time he starts air punching after routine layups. 

Fortunately, referee Danny Crawford is apparently made of steel and good humor. He saw the accident for what it was and walked it off. 

Elsewhere, Carmelo Anthony won't be entering any breakdancing competitions in the near future, Andre Drummond has obviously been practicing his free throws from the middle-school stripe, Chris Bosh photobombs himself with that flop, and, while J.J. Barea is really short, he's not that short.

Get your giggles on with the latest NBA tomfoolery as Shaq, Ernie and the gang unveil this week's Shaqtin' a Fool.
