I have not read the article yet but I am assuming ISH members will list Jeremy Lin to be deserving to be on it (whether actuallly listed or not).

kobe could come out in a wheel chair and sit on the bench for most of the game and he'd still be worth a 100 million dollar per year contract


he is mainly responsible for the lakers signing that multi billion dollar tv deal. the franchise is worth nearly a billion dollars because of kobe

30 mill a year is very underpaid Imo

To claim Melo is the most overpaid is really pushing it. There are 10+ mln. players with close to zero impact, while Melo at least can score at a high volume.

Nope. Dude has been playing well. Other guys WAY more overcompensated.

I can agree with some on the list, but whoever wrote it is an idiot for including Nowitzki. He was injured earlier, and since returning, the Mavericks are 25-23, which isn't impressive until you look at the roster and realize Dirk is about the only good thing going for the team.

On top of that, he still performs well in the clutch, which, disagree if you will, is a rare quality in a player.

BTW, he's had 5 double-doubles this season, which may not impress many, but one of those double-doubles includes a 21 pt/20 reb game. :applause:







Eh... Who am I kidding? Dirk isn't worth $20 million a year.


I'm surprised Javale McGee wasn't mentioned.

Kobe is the 2nd best player in basketball, and is a HUGE cash cow for the Lakers. Why on earth would someone consider him overpaid?

You are new here. There is handful of Lin haters on this very site whose main purpose is to nitpick Lin's game, words said to the media, and his ever moves in an attempt to diminish discredit or belittle him. It's like a mental aphrodisiac to them.

They tend to stay in the shadows when he is doing well but will come out swinging like as if their lives depended on it.

Their hatred rival euro soccer fans of rival teams.

Landry Fields makes $7 million per year, and scores what? 4 or 5 points per game?

Take Melo off the knicks and I guarantee they have way less wins than they do now. No way has he added only 0.7 wins.
