In the Golden State Warriors’ game against the Miami Heat last night, Warriors guard Shaun Livingston was displeased with a no-call after he thought he was fouled on a shot attempt. After Livingston missed the shot, he immediately walked over to the referee, Courtney Kirkland, while pleading his case.
During the verbal exchange, Livingston pressed his head up against Kirkland’s head. Subsequently, Livingston was tossed from the game.
Many people have been saying that Livingston headbutted Kirkland. However, what Livingston did was far from a headbutt. This is a headbutt…
After seeing a Gentleman Jack Gallagher headbutt, it’s clear that what Livingston did was simply a love tap.
