Underline means they performed decent or well but should have a lower salary.

Bold means they play out sucked or was sidelined a lot.

Italics means they performed what people expected but they got injured.

I pretty much agree with that except I would underline Kirilenko and Kidd shouldn't be bolded. He didn't play well enough to deserve over 20 million dollars but he definitely didn't suck.

I missed Kirilenko and I accidently highlighted Kidd to when I tried to highlight Jermaine O'neal

There are people in america who work 10 times harder than these guys do and make less then these dudes make in a game. They're all over paid. 20 mil to play basketball? seriously? What pisses me off is they think they are underpaid.

Stop buying tickets, jerseys, etc then. "Working hard" is relative in ANY job. Bottom line is bottom dollar. These players help their company profit millions of times what any typical worker helps their company profit - hence why they make millions of times more than the typical worker. They are not overpaid, because if they were, the league and the teams would be losing money.

There are people in African countries who work 10 times harder than your guys in America and make less in a year than your dudes make in a week. They're all overpaid.

Now please try to get a grip on how an economy works before crying out about how much NBA players make.
