Don't Give in to a Player's Frustration

They all whine sometime

I guess it gets to all of us when a good player wants to get certain calls. Yet, because of the nature of the game, that player is expected to play hard and not get easy calls. That's when his frustration gets expressed.

In 2001, he was a pro player who averaged 35+ minutes per game, had a 45% shooting average, and had scored 20-22 points per game average over his career. From 1999 to 2001, he averaged 3.5-4.0 free throw (FT) attempts per game and hit 80% from the FT line. But, in 2001, he averaged 3.6 FT attempts (shooting 92.5% on FTs) in 11 games. And he was complaining!
