    I want to look at this, but I wish bleacher report would just list them instead of doing these stupid page view grabs.

    Two Iowa connections in the top 5?!?! Huzzah! Luckily it is Farentz and Collison, two individuals I loath with a passion.

    Re: 50 Worst - Most Money

    Gotta get New York Knicks giving Eddy Curry $60 million on there. He's more talented than most players on that list, but he produced much less than almost all of them.

    Also as somewhat of a Bulls expert, the Brad Miller salary was an AWESOME deal compared to Jerry Kruase's final screw up. He gave $32 million to Eddie Robinson for 3 years of 7 point, 2.7 rebound basketball. Miller actually produced a decent level that year and was huge in helping Noah develop into the player and passer he is now. Robinson did nothing but ball hog and suck for 10.7 mil a year over 3 years.

    My favorite quote in that article:

    "If Gilbert Arenas wasn’t the type of person who brings a gun into the locker room to threaten teammates, he probably wouldn’t be considered terribly overpaid. But, unfortunately, Arenas is the type of player who brings a gun into the locker room to threaten teammates. "

    When Rose got hurt all the talking heads kept saying "he represents what's right in the league" and even with the controversy at Memphis they're right because the bar is set so low.

    How hard is it to not:
    1. Bring guns to locker rooms.
    2. Have two championship rallies before you win a championship.
    3. Have a 1 hour jerk off tv special 'championship of me'.
    4. Injure yourself two years in a row during the playoffs while not playing or practicing (Stoudamire).
    5. Publicly ask for your coach to be fired even though he's generally done quite well.
    6. Go into stands to fight with fans.
    7. Sign up for the Olympic team then complain you don't get paid for it...then reverse your stance when it's obvious this makes you an A-hole in the eyes of everyone.

    Could go on and on. You don't have to do much to be "class of the NBA". Just play basketball and not be completely crazy, violent or have a gigantic god complex. People will jump to overlook something like possibly cheating on an SAT compared to all that.

    Re: 50 Worst - Most Money

    Bynum is listed at number 20... I think most people would disagree with that based on his performance this year.

    Re: 50 Worst - Most Money

    I probably would have put LaFrentz on the list before Collison. I looked it up and he had $84 mil in career earnings over 10 years for 10 pts and 6 rebounds/game. He made over $12 mil/ his last 2 years in the league. Wow!

    Because the Yankees have an unlimited bankroll, so no amount they spend is absurd.
