There's no way that Ray complains more than the rest of the starting lineup except maybe Rondo.

Hard to believe Ray Allen is a 73%, would have never guessed he complained the most. I guess this is interesting

Wall Street Journal kept reporters there at both teams sides and recorded every complaint to the refs according to ESPN Radio. They said that Ray Allen's was the highest because he kept complaining even during the breaks to the refs about his foul trouble in game 1.

I think all teams are whiners. Same with alot of their fans. Thats the issue with NBA. No other sport has as many complainers as the NBA does.

Kind of surprising. I was thinking of someone else to be first on the Celtics.

Ever thought because the fans are so close and you can see all the player's faces

Are you kidding me, ron never argues with refs!

He's so calm now, that it is ridicilous compared what he was before

Artest does look like a changed man. He didn't lose his cool when Rondo pushed him last game.

Gasol should be 100% he cries every play. Same with Pierce though.

I really don't buy a single stat they came up with.


I do agree that complaining is worse now than it's ever been.

They should factor in whining about no calls.
