Good list, your 6th man should be Kenny Thomas, who makes 8 mil and has played maybe a dozen games in the past 2 years.

Mark Blount should be the center. 8 million to warm the bench. Even when he does play he's terrible. He's good for 2 open jumpers, 5 or 6 misses, 2 or 3 blown defensive assignments and MAYBE a rebound.

Larry Hughes is way more overpaid (and way less productive) than Monta Ellis.

It was a hard decision between Darius Miles and Rashard Lewis, but Lewis plays.

whoever said monta ellis is overpaid is an idiot. he's coming off an injury and isn't even playing at 100% yet

No way Ellis is very young and talented. I don't think he is overpaid. Just look at his numbers last year, his stats are misleading because he is coming off an injury.

Larry Hughes makes a lot of money. About $12.5 million.

How about anyone making over 5 mill a year. In an 82 game season, thats $60,975.61 per game. Nobody is worth that.

you'r an idiot for putting monta on that list, he's putting up 14ppg and he isn't even nearly playing up to 100%...you put monta on this list,

i'll throw a few players out there, who are much worse than monta and you get less in return for

mike bibby 15mil
steve francis 19mil
baron davis 12mil
malik rose 8mil
mike miller 9mil
stojakovic 13mil
antoine walker 8mil
TMAC 21 mil (he played in how many games this year?)
stackhouse 7mil
j o'neal 21 mil
speedy claxton 5mil
troy murphy 10 mil
sczerbiak 13 mil
brad miller 11 mil
elton brand 13 mil
dalembert 10 mil
hughes 12 mil
bobby simmons 9 mil


and on top of that monta ellis was the lowest paid player for 3 years in the nba putting up 20ppg

Gilbert Arenas. Most overpaid pplayer ever.

Ellis isn't over paid because he is injured, yet Gilbert has a career threatening injury and is overpaid? How about we give him a chance to come back before we judge him.

yea exactly... to a lesser extent same could go for mcgrady... at least he gets injured on the court... same goes with oneal...

overpaid even if they weren't injured:

pg- mike bibby (15 mill)
sg- marbury (22 mill)
sf- marion (17mill)
pf- Kirlenko (15 mill)
c- B. Wallace (14.5 mill)

Marbury 20.8mil 6th highest
T-Mac 20.37mil 9th highest
Marion 17.81mil 10th highest
Kirilenko 15.1mil 16th highest
J.Oneal 21.3mil 2nd highest

Wow! I need one of their agents. I could get like $2-3mil to just be a fan.

Exactly how is Gilbert Areanas overrated? He is the BEST scoring point guard when healthy.

They signed those deals when they were premier all stars (Wallace might have been a little on the decline), at the time it wasn't a big deal that they were given that much money. If I'm going with players who were overpaid when they signed their contract this is what my list looks like:

Rashard Lewis
Josh Smith
Boris Diaw
Jerome James
Andrew Bynum (next season)
Tyson Chandler
Peja
Samuel Dalembert

Granted these names as of right now are all highly overpaid but many of them are in final year or close to the final year of thier contract when the numbers are at thier highest, you have to remember how they played prior to getting those deals. To me contracts like Brian Cardinal, Jerome James, Jerard Jefferies, Nazr Mohammed those are the contracts that are the worse, these are players that never deserved the money they are getting in the first place and no one else even wants these players expiring contract or not. If expiring contracts are so sought after why were LaFrentz, and Wally Szerbiak not taken off the hands of Cleveland or Portland? It seems to me like those are two big contracts that should have been taken even at the expense of a Vince Carter, after all aren't all these teams just trying to save some money and clear cap space for 2010 anyway?

no way josh smith is over paid. i'm in northern va and i will slap the wiz brass when i see them for signing arenas to that contract knowing his knee was bad. whatever smith's numbers are he's getting half what Arenas is. yeah yeah hindsight is twenty twenty but 57 million and playing (thats not exact) is a whole lot better than 110 to sit on the bench. And its not like he was healthy last season either (arenas). we should have seen this coming. Even Chris Webber said arenas went in there and "robbed the wiz with no mask." when other players are saying it you have to pay attention. not attacking u. I know its ur opinion....but maybe its just cause we feel like arenas knew his knee was bad and bamboozled us.......hard.
