Agreed, my biggest gripe by far on the court. Especially when it prevents him from hustling back and playing defense.

Maybe because they're used to getting what they want and they are too comfortable with their status and success. Whereas a non superstar would probably get shunned and get benched for getting a T or arguing....

KG should be on there. Glad to see DWight on there. He whines after ever foul he receives; he hits a guy and throws his arms up like there was no contact and whines while the opposing player is shooting his FTs. Also lets not forget how much he complains the next day about the lack of calls (See: last years playoffs).

Gators123

My friends had courtside seats at a Sixers Hornets game and he said that Chris Paul *****es at the ref and his teammates the entire game. I have no idea how brutal the other guys are so I have no problem with the list. But Kobe was the obvious choice at number one but Tim Duncan surprises me.

Where's Wade on this list? I thought he would be #2 right behind Kobe (who definitely deserves the 1 spot). Everytime I have watched a Heat game in the past he is on the same level as Kobe when it comes to complaining constantly to the officials and usually quite adamently.

Am I the only one who sees this? He's almost been on the verge of crying a couple of times.

kidfury
10-02-2010, 05:18 PM
Kobe and Lebron's games are often broadcast nation wide so it may play a role in them being thought of as being extreme whiners since they get tons of air time. Though imo I do see them as whiners even if I only saw them once a year. Both are talented players no doubt but every time they miss a shot, they whine as if every single shot was supposed to go in and that only a foul could've stop them and not someone's defensive ability. There's a fine line between being confident and being arrogant.

Geargo Wallace

I have seen KG play up close numerous times. On tv, it doesn't look like he is, because he doesn't get in the refs face. But he walks around calling the ref out, and getting mad at himself and the call.

celtisox41
10-02-2010, 08:51 PM
Perkins has a right to complain now, all the refs watch him the whole game, if he does something that is even the tiniest bit questionable its a foul, then he complains half as much as james usually does every play and since they're watching him he gets a technical. James should be number one

_KB24_
10-02-2010, 10:31 PM
KG isn't much of a whiner but he does come down hard on himself when commits a foul or feels if he has gotten fouled. Remember him when he was with the Wolves and they came to LA back in 03, and I had 3rd row seats behind their bench and I clearly heard him mouthing out on himself for a couple of his mistakes. One reason why he was one of my favorite players when he was with Minny because he was always critical of himself.
