DeMar DeRozan Kicks Ball from Ref in Protest Over Missed Foul Call

DeMar DeRozan should try his luck at soccer or maybe even hacky sack.

Midway through the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the Phoenix Suns, the Toronto Raptors shooting guard was visibly irritated following a no-call. In protest of the referees refusing to blow their whistles, DeRozan did the most sensible thing he could; he played keep away with the basketball, using only his foot.

On a scale of Rasheed Wallace yelling "Ball don't lie" to Rajon Rondo throwing the ball at a referee, this falls somewhere in the middle.

Next time, though, DeRozan should get his whistle's worth. This was barely a kick; it was more of a tap.

If you're going to get a technical, send it into the stands. Or at the very least, kick it like you mean it.
