Warriors’ Shaun Livingston & Referee Courtney Kirkland Both Suspended For Altercation Sunday
It was a scene not witnessed since Dennis Rodman was in the league.
Over the weekend, Golden State Warriors guard Shaun Livingston became enraged after he didn’t get a foul on his contested shot, so he yelled at the referee. Then he and the ref went forehead-to-forehead before Livingston was eventually tossed from the game.
The NBA has since suspended both Shaun Livingston and referee Courtney Kirkland for their part in the confrontation.
Livingston will be suspended one game while Kirkland will be suspended for one week. The league determined the official “shared responsibility for the contact that occurred.”
