Carlos Boozer punches ref below the belt [VIDEO]

Chicago Bulls forward Carlos Boozer is listed at 6’9″ and about 270 pounds.

This officially qualifies him as a large, powerful individual.

After an and-one shot in Saturday’s match up against the Dallas Mavericks, Boozer let loose a celebratory fist pump/punch that accidentally landed right in the lap of veteran referee Danny Crawford.

Can you say ouch?

Boozer immediately checked with Crawford to make sure he was okay. Crawford laughed off the incident.

The question here is, with a direct blow from a massive professional athlete, how is Crawford still standing, much less smiling?
