Cool 6 most overpaid players

Quote:
1. Gilbert Arenas, Washington Wizards, 22.8 ppg career

The Wizards owe Arenas roughly $90 million over the next five years. In fact, since he signed his $111 million contract a couple years ago, he really has not been healthy enough to produce. Although in í07-í08 he averaged 19.4 ppg, Arenas only played 13 games. This year Arenas will make $16.1 million, so letís hope he scores more than the 13ppg last year (in two games). Once a key scorer and clutch performer for a competitive playoff team, Arenas is starting to look a little like another Grant Hill. Letís hope his knee is fully recovered this time. With him, they competed against the Cavs in the playoffs for a couple seasons; without him, they wonít make the playoffs this season.

Walton got a 6 year, $30 million contract in '07 (not 5/$50).

Brand got a 5 year, $80 million contract (not 4/$80).

Didn't Kidd sign a much smaller deal this summer?

Two Lakers make the list? What about Peja? Zach? Baron Davis?

I agree with a few of the additional names people have brought up. I'd say Peja (14 million) and Jermaine O'neal (23 million) deserve to be on the list. On my (dis)honourable mention list, in no particular order, I would include:

Eric Dampier - $10 million ($13 million next season. Yikes!)
Kenyon Martin - 15.3 million (good defender who can't shoot or rebound well enough)
Mike Dunleavy - 10 million (decent player, but he can't stay healthy).
Q-Richardson - 9.3 million (one dimensional)
Michael Redd - 17 million (he can't stay healthy)
Bobby Simmons - 10 million (too much money for a role player)
Darko Milicic - 7.5 million (Need I explain?)
Adam Morrison - 5.2 million (paid to wear a suit and collect a ring)

Darko I agree with, but he gets biggest bust of that draft class honours.

I still think Curry should be #1.

nice list Armchair, how Bobby Simmons parlayed that one good year into 10 million (a year).... i'll never know. horrible contract, he was never good to begin with.
At least most of the guys on the list have been good one time in their careers, or had some potential at the time of signing... but bobby simmons? ughhhh.
