Luka Doncic is undoubtedly one of the best players in the league this season. Although he isn’t exactly a contender for the MVP award, Luka has cemented his status as one of the best guards in the NBA. But fans believe that should be overlooked when it comes to Luka’s antics with NBA referees. Doncic has garnered a reputation for complaining to referees when he doesn’t get whistles his way.
Fans have called out the Slovenian player for his actions as well. However, it certainly is understandable that the pressure and spirit of the game could be key factors. The NBA world is aware of Luka’s winning mentality, and it doesn’t come as all that surprising that he isn’t too happy when referees don’t call fouls against him. This has led sports fans to find his soccer equivalent.
Are Luka Doncic and Bruno Fernandes the biggest complainers?
Just like Doncic, Manchester United superstar Bruno Fernandes also has a reputation for complaining to referees throughout a game. Man Utd have without a doubt had a few questionable calls against them this season, and this hasn’t pleased Bruno at all.
Bruno is embarrassing man. The football version of Luka Doncic, all they do is bitch to referees. https://t.co/lqCtIIrK3Z

A fan even tweeted, taking a dig at both Luka and Bruno, “Bruno is embarrassing man. The football version of Luka Doncic, all they do is bi*ch to referees.” Bruno has gotten on referees’ nerves on multiple occasions in the past. So much so that a referee even told Bruno that he was a “pain in the a**” when United was losing, as Bruno told TheAthletic.
Similarly, Luka has also been called out by a former NBA player, Walt Frazier. The ex-New York Knicks star labeled Doncic as one of the biggest crybabies in the league. Similarly, Doncic was also torched by NBA fans when he was called for a carry earlier this season.

Some have mentioned that it’s the passion that both Luka and Bruno have for the sport they play. However, some aren’t convinced that the love for the game causes one to act out in an unprofessional way. Whatever the case, both Doncic, and Fernandes are undoubtedly the best players on their team. Both of them play a pivotal role in every bit of success that the Mavs and United have tasted in recent times.
