Deron Williams 100+ mill
Joe Johnson 100+ mill

They both shoot a combined 8 for 25 against the Miami Heat. And lose for 2nd time in Miami (albeit by 13 instead of 30). Is it fair to say that this is the most overpaid backcourt in the NBA? Thoughts anyone ?

OMG didnt beat the Miami Heat (defending world champions who have been together for 2 years) what a terrible team the Nets are.

Joe Johnson is definitely not playing up to his standards (which is nowhere near what his contract is worth) but there is no reason why he shouldn't be posting up more, which is a main aspect of his game.

deron is a stud, jj is a awful, he should be making 10mil per year, not 20.

10 mil? I wouldn't pay more than 5-6.

Not a Brooklyn fan at all, but you guys need to give them time...the money is irrelevant, change HAD to happen for the Nets and they took a step in the right direction. All they did tonight was lose to a better team, the moves they made in the off season may have not been the most "popular" with some of you, but it instantly made them into the 2nd or 3rd best team in the Eastern conference, and that is saying a lot! since every team after them suck very bad.

JJ has a PER this season of 13, and thats with playing next to a top 5 PG...

some players who have a higher PER than JJ this year; derozan, korver, hayward, reddick, wes. those guys together dont make as much as JJ. lol

Yeah I just shouldn't sign him, you're right sorry. Temporary mental lapse.

deron is not overpaid. eventhough he didnt have a good shooting night he was carving up the heats defence and get his teammates easy baskets.

Any backcourt with Joe Johnson in it, is overpaid.

1 game prior Joe Johnson had 22pts and 5 assists on 50% shooting vs Aaron Afflalo, one of the best perimeter defenders in the game. What a scrub

They'll be fine. Only like 14 games in and they're one of the better teams in the east.

He's not a scrub. He's overpaid.

Deron Williams got fat,and he just shooting long jumpers....i would be suprised if he shoots better that 40% in the end of the season...he just to fat and slow to create good looking open shot for himself

Your criteria of defining someone as "fat" is quite interesting.

Spot on.

I'd rather have an overpaid 11-5 team than an bunch of bargain players on a .500 team. They paid their way to success. It's textbook Yankees philosophy. If you overpay a $20 million dollar player you are probably still getting $10 million dollar player value.

Lol I love all these people always talking about box scores and advanced stats, these are probably the same people who never picked a basketball up before and have played competitively. Deron was picking apart the team last night and Joe Johnson is known to come up short in big games all the time, but he's still one of the best SG's in the game.

They are overpaid, but they are still one of the best starting backcourts in the NBA.

Agree with most

Deron is straight gangster

JJ is not a max 2 guard period

why would you pay so much for a backcourt? guards are commodities, bigs are luxury goods and the nets have subpar bigs. Brook Lopez is pretty good, he should be an allstar, but humphries and gerald wallace making a combined 20 mil? give me a break. The nets should have JJ on the block, the mavs are paying Mayo like 7 mil, the Knicks are paying JR and Brewer nothing. There were better players than JJ that could have been had, but stupid Prokorov thinks that when you pay 20 mil for a player in the nba, you get a player who plays like he is payed 20 mil. lol.
