Everyone knew the contract that was offered to Rudy Gay was outrageous and yet they went through with it... and now they are whining despite Gay not falling in quality or anything.
You make it sound like they've refused to pay him or something drastic. Talking about Memphis "whining", they traded their player and his contract, if they hadn't signed him in the first place he would have been gone in free agency getting them nothing back.
By going the route they did they became a playoff contender while turning Gays 5(?) year contract into a 3 year making it a less horrible signing than it was to begin with.
