That contract is just about as idiotic as Joe Johnson's IMO.

The guy goes to a VERY good team (DAL) and helps put them over the top and suddenly he's a "franchise player"???

That's the thing - every GM is an egomaniac by trade, and as such they all believe they have a VERY good team already - especially those that have average-to-decent teams, like the Knicks or Warriors - and just need that piece to put them over the top, and look to the most recent champion for that piece. So these players get way overpaid, whether that's 15 million a season or less (see Turkoglu, Hedo).
