(Not Exactly) Earning Their Benjamins

It’s amazing to think that in a league with only 450 available roster slots, you could have so many overpaid players. 

You would assume that the laws of supply and demand (and a soft salary cap, to boot) would dictate that the paucity of slots, in great demand by so many young athletes worldwide, would keep salaries down for all but the most elite of superstars.

Well, you would think wrong and, with the NBA beginning play for another season this week, Forbes offers its assessment of the league’s most overpaid (in pictures here).

With so many to choose from, writer Tom Van Riper had a field day.  Check out his rationale for the list’s surprise #1 (and the reasons why big men dominate so much of the list) here.
