If you think Draymond Green whines to the officials too much, just realize you're not alone. 

After the Golden State Warriors' Game 4 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, a reporter asked Green why he didn't "talk" to the officials a lot that night. His response was perfect: 

My mom and my grandma told me I'm crying too much. Leave the officials alone and just play. They've got you out there looking like you're a punk and don't know how to play basketball.

He went on to admit what he was doing and now has a new outlook: 

When you sit back and watch, that's what I was doing. The fact that you asked me that question even further lets me know that that's what I was doing. So I just told myself I'm going to come out and play and whatever happens, happens.

When in doubt, always listen to Mom and Grandma. The Warriors and Cavaliers meet in Game 5 on Sunday with the series tied 2-2.
