LeBron James: "I don't complain about calls too much"

Following Saturday's game 6 loss to the Pacers, when discussing his technical foul for running the complete length of the court after being called for a rare foul, LeBron James said this to the media:
“I had to run down the court to stop from being kicked out,” James said. “I thought it was a pretty bad call. I don’t complain about calls too much. I thought me and Hibbert met at the mountaintop. I didn’t throw an elbow. Basically I went straight up. And I knew he was going to go high hands, like he had been doing. So I went to a double‑clutch to try to let him go down. Then I was able to go over the top. I don’t have no idea why that was called an offensive foul.

“So, you know, it just stopped me from being ejected. I think at that moment I just got away from the ref that called it. I ran down the court to get me away from the scene of the crime, I guess.”
LeBron James - who, in his mind, has never missed a shot in the lane without being fouled - thinks he doesn't complain too much. Although I guess technically he doesn't complain about the actual calls as much as he complains about non-calls.

Really, though, c'mon 'Bron. Watch a Heat game and tell me LeBron isn't spending 70% of the time between plays barking at refs, making the face you see in the included picture, and generally looking like a whiny child.
