This article is a few weeks old, but I don't think anybody has posted it yet.

1. Jermaine OíNeal $21,352,500 - That is a lot of money to be paying for one leg.

2. Stephon Marbury $20,800,000 - Looks like he is off to Greece.

3. Steve Francis $17,180,000 - Did not even know he was still on the books.

4. Raef LaFrentz $17,180,000 - Really? Wow. Portland likes to pay guys not to play.

5. Gilbert Arenas $14,653,466 - We wish we got that kind of cash to blog.

6. Ben Wallace $14,500,000 - That is not even a mill per point.

7. Larry Hughes $12,827,676 - Money well spent.

8. Eddy Curry $9,723,983 - That will do wonders at White Castle.

9. Darius Miles $9,000,000 -That will teach you to pay on potential.

10. Cuttino Mobley $8,925,000 - Did he not retire?

11. Antoine Walker $8,854,475 - He is shimmy-shaking all the way to the bank.

12. Juwan Howard $7,375,500 - He must be waiting for the call to TV like Webber and Rose.

13. Eric Snow $7,310,000 - Reason to be smiling on NBA TV.

14. Darko Milicic $7,000,000 - Darko scammed the NBA, nice work

15. Adonal Foyle $6,800,000 - Nice way to head into retirement.

16. Jerome James $6,200,000 - The biggest waste of cash there is. Obama should hit this salary first.

17. Shareef Abdur-Rahim $6,200,000 - No matter how you spell it, he is making a lot for nothing.

18. Adam Morrison $4,159,200 - Should be paying the NBA just to remain in the league.

"NBA teams are wishing it was that simple. Hopefully one day NBA teams will figure out they canít blow money like this on players who donít help you win."

I agree with most of this list and reading it makes me happy that we don't have JOs contract anymore, even though he was my favorite Pacer after Reggie retired. I also think they forgot to put Tinsley on the list; he should be between Snow and Darko and they can move Morrison to an honorable (or dishonorable depending on how you view the list) mention.

There's more about this article that I don't agree with, but this is board is for basketball so I'll spare you guys end my thoghts here.
