I was talking to a buddy and we were poking fun at all the cry-baby superstars in the NBA. One thing led to another and the list is pretty deep. I laughed remembering some of the most crybaby moments.

I think that in terms of whiners in the NBA, based on my limited knowledge, I'd say the list has to include:
Glen Davis
Rasheed Wallace
Lebron James
Tim Duncan (yes Tim Duncan)

Who else you got?

LeBron easily. How many times has he made this face after not getting a call?

Admittedly, Kobe is one of the biggest criers too. Westbrook overreacts too, same for Kevin Love and DeMarcus Cousins.

That is 100% true. Puts the same face every time.

Blake is probably the biggest in NBA, if someone fouls him he will act like he was hit by a train and then if its not a flagerant he will cry and complain.

lebrat james and dwyane wade, although he never had a whine because he got every call he wanted.
k. durant is a punk too.

Those are really about the only 3 in NBA history.

There's no way to pick one without letting your biases take over. Most of the stars are great whiners...and they almost all do it with equal frequency.

09-06-2014, 07:54 PM
Ah there's a LOT

Initially I think of CHRIS PAUL, DWIGHT HOWARD, LEBRON, WADE, KOBE

I capped locked those cuz everyone should be aware of there constant tantrums.. Otherwise your blind. Haren, Westbrook, Durant, Griffin, Kevin Love, Perkins(if he matters) whine in their own ways a lot too.


To clear biases, Vince and Tmac were babies In the past about injuries..but not bad about refs, etc.

But Vince leads his team every year in charges drawn now and plays all 82 games so I think that's behind him.

Duncan maybe is not a total whiner but he does have this face that he puts looking at the refs almost everytime they call a foul on him. Almost like he is in shock that a foul was called in him. Does it very consistently.

Type in "Duncan Complaining" in google and see the images. Hundreds of pics with the same face/hand gestures. Drives me crazy.

Without looking, I'm assuming you mean when he goes all bug eyed and looks in total disbelief. Definitely a whiny player.

Really though, there are a ton of them. As a Kings fan, I wish Cousins would quit whining and focus on the game.

Good point about the injury whiners. I agree Vince has but that behind him. Kind of like seeing Lebron really over act injuries. Part of the reason I admire people like Ginobili is their drama free approach.

Pretty much any superstar/player who feels entitled to getting fouls called in their favor, does this thread apply to.

Wade isn't as bad as the guys I have ahead of him, and probably doesn't even whine as much as Lebron or Kobe. What Wade does that pisses me off is he whines while the play is still active. Kobe and Lebron no doubt whine more, but usually they play it out until the whistle blows then throw a hissy fit.

Wade will stay on the wrong end of the court whining while the defense takes the rebound of his idiotic shot down the court for an easy open shot. I hate it. Always have.

Drama free????

Come on. Ginobili is probably the greatest flipper of all time, and has been known to throw a fit or two when it didn't work out for him.

What irks me out the flopping talk is that it's always LeBron who gets best up. But the context is always ignored.

Arvidas Sabonis and Vlade Divac brought the soccer/euro flopping with them into the NBA. It worked to a degree. Manu and Parker really brought it to a new level and did it on a championship team. It then spread like wild fire. It worked.

Stephen Jackson has to be on that list hands down. I remember going to a CLE vs GSW game when he was on the Warriors and him complaining about not getting a foul call so instead of running back on defense after missing his shot Lebron dribbles down the court and drains a wide open 3. SMH. I swear he would get a technical almost every game in 08-09 lmfao

Oh **** off. Everybody that watches even a game will see at least one call in which LeBron will whine about a call. That's not even a bad thing. A TON of the top athletes do it. Jordan did it. Kobe does it (worse than LeBron). Hell, even the top hockey players have been known for it. Sidney Crosby is the biggest whiner in professional sports. Even Wayne Gretzky whined a little.

You prove your own stupidity and ignorance by blindly denying to see that LeBron doesn't do it. But let's not pretend that the best of the best haven't been known to do it too...

This is a video of Bron whining about fouls AFTER the game. I mean, what more can anybody say to you without realizing that there isn't anything between your ears?

Duncan definitely does give "the look" a lot, but he is far from the biggest whiner of all time. There's a difference between giving the "i didn't do anything look" to constantly whining/complaining to the refs IMO. There are guys who complain and whine far more than Timmy does. Of course he does his fair share like all star players do, but not the most ever

Agree to disagree. I cannot think of any player I have seen whine more my entire lifetime of watching basketball (1989).

I definitely don't agree. He's up there with everyone else. I don't like singling one guy out more than the rest, because so many people do it, but he's certainly right there. He reacts to everything.

And just to be clear, I am not hating on him at all. I included my favorite player of all time on the list (Wade), and I comfortably have Duncan at the 5/6 spot all-time with Bird, just ahead of Shaq. The guy just complains every single time he is called for a foul. Every time. Without exception.

He doesn't react to everything. There are many times he raises his hand acknowledging he fouled someone too (just to get nit picky ;) )

I just disagree that he is the biggest whiner in the history of all time which is what was said. I mean guys like Reggie & Sheed whined far more

Well i can tell you for sure that's not true :) This is coming from someone who watches every Spurs possession lol. He does his fair share, but to say he does it every time without exception is just not true. I know he does it often, but in reality, it's usually only a few times a game.

He gets animated and talks to the refs all the time. You're a joker if you think all he does is give a look and call it quits.

Coming from someone who watches the Heat all the time, this is really being over exaggerated. He doesn't complain often. But when he does, he is a really big annoying ***** about it. That's why it sticks in people's heads. But he doesn't actually do it as often as people are making it out to be.

Should have clarified. What I mean by Ginobili being drama-free is when it comes to injuries. The guy has played with a crooked nose.
