Only Foyle made this list, in 10th place. Called out of place in small-ball offense. In close competition with other seldomly used big men.

Recently, he has played well and more often, so right now maybe no Ws on that list.

Mentioned "several questionable" Mullin transactions w/o naming names.

Lists are fun.

1. NY backcourt (Marbury & Francis)
2. Chris Webber
3. Michael Finley
4. Grant Hill
5. Eddie Jones
6. Larry Hughes
7. Kenyon Martin
8. Theo Ratliff
9. Raef LaFrentz
10. Adonal Foyle

Sounds about right to me. I knew Webber would have a setback year (after an awesome one last season).

Thankfully (:scratch:), Foyle is the cheapest paid player on the list... and isn't the least productive either, a spot I reserve for LaFrentz or Ratliff.

Monta Ellis is second on the NBA's most underpaid players...

Some of them are pretty weird... There are worse contracts out there. For example, why are not Allan Houston or Brian Grant in that list?. Both are making money ($20 and $17 million respectively) and they ain't even playing...

Lists are almost always wrong and entertaining.

Up until this season, Richardson could claim a spot on that list, too.

I'd take Grant Hill playing for us right about now. He has been very good this season and it is great to see him play at a good level again

Whenever Grant Hill PLAYS, he's worth the money.

The problem is, you can't rely or build on a guy that might sit 70 games a season. I know he's played a large amount of games this season... but its not far fetched to know the other shoe will drop soon enough.

I just admire the man from coming back from what he did. It must have been very frustrating to not get healthy for a few years like that. He did get the money any way though

I'm sure it can be very frustrating quietly becoming a multimillionaire by simply watching the Orlando Magic for the past 5 years.

That's a kick to the balls of a very decent person and great player man!

He would have had to have been frustrated to the point of almost retiring

I'm mostly playing around here... but I still don't have too much sympathy for a guy whose entire day gets better by simply going to WellsFargo.com and looking at how much he's sitting on.
