Ainge calls LeBron’s complaints about officiating “embarrassing”

You expect bloggers, fans and sports radio hosts to react to LeBron James’ whining about officiating. But an NBA general manager?

Yesterday on WEEI, Danny Ainge joined the fray:

“I think the referees got the calls right. I don’t think it was a hard foul,” Ainge said of the mixups involving James and Heinrich, as well as another one involving James and Taj Gibson. “I think the one involving LeBron against Boozer, that was flagrant. I think the officials got it right.

“I think that it’s almost embarrassing that LeBron would complain about officiating,” Ainge added.

Like I said yesterday, James has been coddled by the league for most of his career. Credit the Bulls for pushing back on The Coddled One.

I wouldn’t be surprised if LeBron clarifies his statements in an attempt to limit the backlash.

    Why is this idiot so insufferable?

    He has all the tools to transcend sports and etch himself into the annals of history as one of the greatest athletes ever, yet continues to be such a b i t c h

      LeBroid is so tiresome and so loathesome. Props to Ainge for calling the biggest beneficiary of coddling by the whistles for what he is.

        also subtly points out for all the refs to see how ridiculously spoiled this bitch is. the question is, will this make all the refs think, ‘maybe i’ve been coddling this guy too much’ or will they think, ‘oh, man, i owe the king an apology…if i don’t, he may never sign another autograph for me…’

    I wouldn’t be surprised either. He is such a whining b I t c h and his ego is so big that he can’t stand people ragging on him he will defiantly pull a “I diddnt mean it please stop yelling at me excuse”

    Ainge is a smart man.
