    Remember this name??

    I was looking through the NBA rosters tonight looking for some Iowa connections and ran across this guy:

    Mikki Moore is still playing in the NBA for the Kings and would you believe he makes more money( 5.2 million) than Kyle Korver, Bruce Bowen, Chris Paul, Greg Oden and Kevin Durant. I thought he was more of a novelty than a BB player when he was at Nebraska.

    There is a reason he makes more than Paul, Oden, and Durant. Players in the NBA don't get paid a lot of money until after their 3rd year usually. Paul will get a lot of money!

    He had a half decent year for the Clippers a few years ago, and since he's almost 7' tall, they'll have a dump truck drop some cash off on his front step. If you're 7' and can chew gum and walk at the same time, you can make bank. Shawn Bradley and 77 million about says it all.

    Reminded me about Jon Koncak:

    Though a reliable defender and fan-favorite for much of his career, Koncak is perhaps best remembered for the six-year, US$ 13 million contract he received from the Hawks in 1989 - an unprecedented total for a reserve. The deal was roundly criticized since it paid Koncak more than Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. His large contract prevented the Hawks from taking part in any other major free agent signings for several years. As a result, he earned the derisive nickname "Jon Contract." Koncak is blamed for the rapid salary increases that occurred in the NBA following his signing
