The crybaby problem

Michael Powell in today's NY Times:

Note to the league commissioner, Adam Silver: Playoff basketball is one of the great treats in sports, all sweaty intensity and artistry, and it is scarred, game after game, by the incessant whining of players and coaches at referees. Basta, please.

It's what I call the prima donna problem. Maybe the NBA should create a special crybaby foul: whine about referee calls more than a fixed number of times in a game and it counts the same as a personal and team foul.
