I mean Walton, Shaq(last few years),Eddy Curry etc..

No way they deserve the money ( only a few Kobe, Lebron, Wade,Howard,Paul, WIlliams)

they are just potheads

Does these "worst contracts" threads that are being made have anything to do with the RUMORED contract the Hawks are showing JJ?

Because no one wants to watch a garbage man pick garbage or someone flip burgers?

Anytime your contract is larger than the President of the United States, you're getting paid too much.

These athletes act as if they're out on a battlefield in World War 3. Those are the guys that deserve to get paid, not these guys that are doing what they enjoy to do.

At least some of them donate money for good causes.

They get paid because of their marginal productivity. Although i dont suppose anyone is looking for an economic analysis of why and just wants to vent, am i right?

They get paid because we support them by viewing the games on television.

The advertising and television research drives the price of NBA tv deals.

Don't watch , and the value of the league will slowly go down.

There's also the fans that pay ridiculous prices to go and watch the games at the arenas . Most of the money for the players usually comes from gate revenues. or if you go to Auburn Hills michigan and they charge you 10 dollars just to park , in a parking lot that they own , that pays the players salary for the game.

They get paid so much because the average joe couldnt beat the 13th man on the bench in a game !!! lol the question i have is why do owners who make hundreds of millions of dollars and cry broke when it comes to putting a decent team on the court (ie ROBERT SARVER suns owner) !!!

The reason NBA players get paid so much....

Because the NBA is a business and the businessmen (owners) are making smart investments in which they are reaping the benefits. Its all about the might $$$$$$$$$$$$$.

DEAL WITH IT!

Think of the revenue they bring into their organizations. How much money in sponsorships, ticket sales, jersey sales, advertisements etc does LeBron bring into Cleveland? Or D-Wade or CP3 etc.. They deserve the $$ because that is how much they are worth to their companies. Just like in any other job.

i love how hypocritical the person who started this thread is.

The reason why they get paid so much is because people are obbsesed with sports and the nba and when they give a player 20 million it can make them 100 million when they give a player 8 million it can make them 60 million.


These players are making money because US the fans are watching and the ones GIVING them the money.

If you think they shouldnt make the money then dont watch games, dont come and BLOG about these players because the fact that you are apart of this site means you are a BIG sports fans and one of the main reasons why they make this money.

I love sports and IDC how much they get paid because i enjoy watching them play. Im not going to be a hypocrite and watch games and complain on why they get paid.

Sorry for the rant but seriously. Anyone who blogs about why people get paid so much on a sports site is the LAST person who should be complaining about why they get paid so much.
