McGraw says 'no one seems upset' about failure in 2010 free agency

Yeah, ok. (ht: BDL)

Well, rest assured: I'll always be upset. About something. But also about this. It still sucks. It wanes as the season draws nearer (and maybe why this is only a ranty fanpost), but that feeling's not gone.

The message seems to be: We missed out on better players and got Fragile McBreakingfist instead, but it's a real team that Sam Smith likes because the bench leaps up after made baskets. No other team does it with such spirit!

There's more crap in there. Noah saying 'everything worked out fine', Rose calling his team 'grimy' as a term of endearment. 

It's not about still harping over the failure over the summer. Wasn't a great plan to start out with, wasn't executed very well, but they made a nice save in free agency with what else they did after the initial failure. And it's a good team that can get better, maybe in a couple years to Miami's level. It'll be fun and worth rooting for. My point is: isn't that enough to be pleased about? Why the smoke-blowing that it's somehow a better scenario than getting the best player in the league?

I don't blame the players for saying this stuff either (ok, the 'grimy' comment is nonsensical), they're here to compete so why concede to Miami? But don't paint all fans as complacent in our small-time free agency result and second-class status.
