LeBron James, Russell Westbrook and Rajon Rondo have been known to express just a little bit of frustration towards NBA officials in the past.

So, maybe it shouldn't be a surprise to see that the Los Angeles Lakers fanbase complains the most about the refs.

We analyzed Twitter data over the last month to see which NBA fans whine most about officiating, and the Lakers topped the list by a long shot.

The study tracked negative tweets about NBA officiating in regards to each NBA team. For example, all tweets about the Lakers that also included phrases like "bad call," "horrible call," "awful refs," "bad officiating," "horrible officiating," "bad refs," "horrible refs," etc.

The Knicks were second, followed by the Nets, Bulls, Warriors and Cavs.

Portland has the most complacent fan base, according to the study. The Raptors and Thunder rounded out the bottom three in terms of ref likeability.
