Of those 22 starting point guards, Tinsley would rank...
Salary----- 11th Right in the middle with only one player not in his rookie contract making less than he ...Mike James makes around 500,000 less.
I don't think anyone, including Tinsley, ever said he was the best point guard in the league. He's certainly not paid like one, nor was he drafted to be one. I think it's arguable whether or not those 22 players are undeniably better that Jamaal. This arguement rings true for our starting shooting guard,small forward and center as well. I can name 20 better guys at each position but I don't remember why that matters really.
