Who DOES deserve max money?

I am asking this because it seems many are upset that Chris Bosh could demand and get max money.

My question is....

Outside of the obvious Kobe, Lebron, Chris Paul, D-Wade, maybe Dwight, who are the others in the league worthy of max money? If the criteria is that you can change a game and carry a team by yourself, who's left?......and further, if there are only a precious few, is it that people think there are some other all stars available that we can get in Toronto and pay max money to carry this team?

Nobody else imo.

Unless you're an MVP candidate on a regular basis and can carry a team deep into the playoffs, no way should you get max money.

Duncan and a few aging players were max worthy players, but now that they're declining there is nobody left other then the players you mentioned.

Yao is nearly done. He was a max player 3-4 yrs ago, not anymore.

Deron Williams is a great player but not a max player. I'd put him in the mix in the second tier stars ala Carmelo, Bosh etc...

if chris paul deserves max than so does deron willams....paul averaged 23/11/3 while deron averaged 20/11/1 for a more talented team....so why doesnt deron william get in again?....and they both impact their team in a very similar way....

This is getting annoying ... If the guys you mention deserves max money, so does CB4. Why? NBA is a business where the money plays the most important role. There are 30 teams in the NBA and the players who make the people to buy tickets, they deserve the max money. Raptors did a good job selling tickets so far with Bosh being the face of the franchise ...

i dont know if its just me but i just cant see us giving Bosh that kinda money....it just doesnt seem right....it would completely fuck up our future, financially and winning wise.....either Bargs or Bosh has to go IMO...they are just too similar...and we really need a traditional center....

That's a different story ... there are many teams would like to give Bosh max money, if Raptors won't want to give him. Bargs is signed for the next 5 years, 50 millions, so I don't think you want to give him away. I can see how we are getting fucked financially if Bosh would sign and afterward he became a totally nut case a la VC. Otherwise, this team can play a couple of years together and became real good. It would cost MLSE some more pennies, but who gives a shit if tickets/merchandises are sold like there is no tomorrow?

Bosh is too soft, but Biedrins is garbage, I hope if Colangelo makes a deal he gets a better player than that. Jackson is a really good player but he's 31 years old, so if we did that I would want Monta Ellis thrown in too.

Bosh, Banks and Evans for Biedrins, Stephen Jackson and Monta Ellis.

IMO, 4 players currently deserve a "franchise" designation and the max deal: Kobe, LeBron, Wade and Dwight Howard.

People like Paul, Deron Williams, Bosh, Roy and some others should be getting less.

That's what you get when you hate Bosh as much as he does.

In order of most deserved:

1. Lebron
2. Kobe
3. Wade
4. Paul
5. Howard
6. zachus

Everyone else is either Tier-2 or below, and I'd even say that 4-6 are on the borderline.

As good as Zachus is, he just has no flare for the spectacular. Fundamentally sound in every respect, but he doesn't fill the seats.
