yes he is overpaid.
1) he is the highest paid man in the league and he has never been out of the first round.
2)His big contract keeps his team from adding talent around him and keeping current players. i.e. Chauncey billups, Wally Szczerbiak
3)He is too obsessed with himself. In his commercial and in his interview he talks about his stats. That is all he ever talks about. That and that he is underpaid
4)stats and money don't get you out of the first round. neither does blaming everyone else on your team for not getting out of the first round when you are the one that is supposed to be the leader and you dont even attept a shot in the final 2 minutes...
You cannot be serious with the Cutino Mobley comarion. No one in the leagueand I repeat no one in the league has averaged 20 pts 10 rebs and 5 assts for three straight seasons. I think you guys are really unfairly bashing him. He is a top 5 NBA playerOriginally posted by cam'ronNBA
Not Only is he overpaid, he is overrated and he isnt even that good!! Cuttino Mobely puts up similar numbers!!!
GREAT POST!!!!!!!!!!Originally posted by OZZY
He is not overpaid sorry, ethically yes, economically no!
He is paid so much because he is a really rare player, you can not find one player on earth that can do what he does! He can run, jump, he is 7-1, grabs every rebound in site, can shoot inside and out, can attack the rim, block shots, bring up the ball, pass it, can guard any position from PG-C at times, great leader, and very intense. You could never find a player like that anywhere on earth today, that is why he is paid like that. Yeah they have not got out of the first round, and neither did MJ in his first 5+ years until Scottie came along. KG just needs a great player that can play with him, if KG was on the Kings or Pistons etc he would be concider as one of the best players in the league. Your saying he could not win with a PG like Payton or Bibby? With a SG like Wells, or Stackhouse, with a PF like Brand? Come'On, he just needs some help. But he is not overpaid, what would the Wolves be without him, well not in the playoffs and having 5-8 thousand people at there games instead of 15-18 thousand.
