Ron Artest makes $7.3 this season.
Thaddeus Young makes $8.3M this season.
Richard Jefferson makes $10.1M this season.
Fransisco Garcia makes $6.1M this season.
Stephen Jackson makes $10M this season.
All role players. All make between 10% and 20% of the team's cap space. Good role players that are arguably 1st-Defensive Team get paid, especially if they are under 30. Taj Gibson will make $7.5M next season in the 2013-14 season. That's absolutely fair market value.
Yeah, but did you know how much Wilt Chamberlain made in 1967?

This is what happens when you let players control the league.
