NBA Salary Madness!!!

Allan Houston uses Genorthix, dammit.

Just look at it. The New York Knicks salary issues. It is hilarious. They have over 50 million coming off the books this summer and they are STILL 30 million over the salary cap. Job well done, Isaiah.

Let's look a little deeper into the finances of the NBA shall we.

***This season, the second highest paid person in the league was...ESPN analyst Alan Houston who hasn't played in 2 years. Oh yeah, he was paid by the Knicks.

***Jalen Rose was receiving checks from around 5-25 different teams.
***Michael Finley is the 3rd highest paid player at over 20 million, but San Antonio only owes him a little over 3 mill...good work, Dallas.

***I don't really want to live in a world where Brian Grant is making over 17 mill per year.

***Larry Hughes is the 18th highest paid player...ugh.

**The Warriors owe ADONAL FOYLE over 27 million for the next 3 years...that might be the worst contract of all time.

***Finally, Charlotte's highest paid player makes 5.25 mill, the Knicks paid 11 guys more than that this season. At least 3 of them were not even on the team.

It really is interesting to look at salary situations and see some of the outrageous contracts that have been signed and now teams are paying for. The Knicks truly are a mess.
