Miller's overpaid, but he's not a bust.

There are worse out there.

I figured it was either/or or both.

He is definetly overpaid and underachieving this year.

I'd take Antonio Daniels out of there. He's been pretty reliable over the years. And $6M doesn't put him in the all time overpaid/bust category.

Marbury pretty much owns this.

A few knicks for you to consider
First the biggest bust, I think Jerom James is the biggest on the team. he is getting 6 mil for the next two years and played what 10 minutes total. They reported that he is out the rest of this year with an ankle problem as if he had a shot at seeing any time anyways but he has done less to earn his money then anyone
Obviously you know about "starbury"
I wouldn't mind adding eddy curry to that list at 10 mil for the next 2 years and requesting an advance on it because he is broke after coming to camp out of shape playing a game and "hurting" his other knee he is out again and with the personal problems he now has I honestly don't think teams would take him if you threw Labron James in with the deal(not that they are on the same team just saying)
Jared Jeffries deserves consideration. If you like D then maybe not but he sticks with PGs on D here and there but makes a routine habit of blowing lay ups. Yes he is tall enough to dunk but don't tell him that when he reaches over the basket, drops the ball on the rim and watches it clank out. Teams know they don't have to defend him so he actually takes jumpers....with hilarious outcomes. If he wasn't making what he was he might not be on this list for his defence alone but Isiah Thomas made sure to outbid everyone else, by a lot, and before anyone else made any kind of offer




Basically we could have the knicks bust Vs the league busts and probably win

Based purely on this year, maybe.

What about Raef Lafrentz ? Isn't he making 12 millions or something like that to keep the bench warm ?

how the hell are you going to call marbury a bust when he is not even playing!!!! and its not his fault he isnt playing... i love the knicks but what they are doing with marbury is by far one the dumbest things ive ever seen done in sports

Marbury is the king of this team

he is making 20 mil and not playing (even when asked if he wanted to) no matter what the reason he is getting that and adding nothing to his team there for he is a bust and deserves to be highlighted as a particularly bad one

Marbury has fell out of favor in NY but I think he can still play at a high level. If he got on the court, I think he would be worth his salary

No way he'd be worth it.
