How are they going to put Possey on there and not Marberry

Marberry should be on there, and not included in number 4 i guess.

4.The entire New Knicks roster(current payroll $90,467,471) The highest payroll in the league produced a whopping record of 23-59 last year(151-259 the past 5 years; last above .500 season was '00-'01)

LOL!:laugh2:

vince carter sits out when he gets his pinky banged up??? he has missed about 10 games in the passed 2 seasons, and he played the end of the year on a bad ankle and still produced. this guy is ********* ********. VC sucked it up and went out there and played.

Why is Reggie Evans there?
He plays good D, and is one of the best rebounders in the league.

Posey doesn't make $8.5M...this list is all screwed up.
Example: How is LO the 3rd most overpaid at $14.6 when Francis is #6 at $19.8M???

" 25. Vince Carter ($15,200,000) All money and flash but no heart at all. He sits out when his pinky gets banged up. As a Tarheel fan, he embarasses me!!! "

The article sucks. For the past few years Kenyon Martin has held the worst contract in the NBA. At least Vince Carter shows up to play (albeit lacking passion). This year Bogut or Biedrins might take over :)

PS Laker fans, Walton is definitely up there.

Raef Lafrentz should be number 1. At least Dalembert gives you something. Lafrentz gives you less than 2 ppg and 2 rpg at $12 mil salary. Also, how about Adonal Foyle? Brian Cardinal? Kenyon Martin? Juwan Howard? You could even put Shaq on the list...

The writer says in the beginning it's in no particular order, so don't get all bent out of shape about the order of the list. Then again, how can you make this kind of list and not put an order to it. This guy's ********.

Missing: Kenyon Martin, Stephon Marbury, Rasheed Wallace (for 12 points and 7 rebounds a game, he's not worth $13 million), Tracy McGrady, Jermaine O'Neal, Rasho Nesterovic (how can he have Gadzuric and Jason Collins but not Rasho?), Cuttino Mobley, Stromile Swift, Andrei Kirilenko

Deng? You're an idiot

Must be. Deng has on of the best Mid-Range shots in the league.

Yeah its a god awful list, and the guy shows a couple times that he really doesnt know that much about the NBA.

He says Steve Francis and his contract are constantly shopped, when in reality that contract was bought out over a year ago by Portland.

He says Tim Thomas is a good player, but his contract proves he should of stayed in school. What the **** does that even mean? Does he realize Thomas has been in the league for like 10 years now? I think he may of got Tim mixed up with Tyrus...

He says Antoine Walker hasnt been worth anymore than the minimum since 03. He almost made a couple of All Star teams and was a key piece to a championship team.

Oh and his assessments on Lamar Odom and Samuel Dalembert are terrible, guy has no clue what he is talking about.

He says Posey get 8.5 million... no clue where he got that number from.

He spells Dirk Nowitzki wrong.

Saying Ben Wallace and Reggie Evans arent worth anything is a gross overstatement. They are good at what they do.

I agree, there were several players that should have been top 25 that were missing... the list was poorly thought out.

Steve Francis is N.1 for sure. he used to be good, but what did he produce?

this list is kinda ********. the guy who made it doesn't know what he's talking about.

where Shaq? he's a million times more overpaid than Vince Carter. At least Vince plays most of the games and scores 20ppg.

I strongly agree with you on this. Guys like Lamar Odom and Shaun Marion are nearing the end of thier contracts that were signed a few years back so of course the numbers are going to high at the end of their deals. Odom was in Miami and nobody questioned the money he got before he was traded to LA for Shaq. LAkers fans are quick to say he sucks yet he is their most versatile player, and if you hadn't traded for him and his salary you'd probably still have an old Shaq perhaps with no Kobe, no Gasol, and an Andrew Bynium who still rides the bench. I do agree Ben Wallaces contract is terrible, and a few others he listed but how do you miss players like Marbury, Martin, Wallace, T-Mac, Swift, and Kirilenko?

This is a good top 5 list for 08-09 season.

http://thehoopdoctors.com/online/?p=120

Much better list, but I question the guy's basketball knowledge for saying Francis is trying to rejuvenate his career in Portland now. Isn't he still with Houston? Portland is just the one paying the majority of his ridiculous salary.
