Who are the top 5 bums in the NBA? By bums, I mean either wastes of talent, overpaid scrubs etc.

My top 5 list, in no particular order:

1. Latrell Sprewell - You're not getting $14 million dollars to 'feed your family.' I'd be surprised if he even got signed by any team for the minimum.

2. Kwame Brown - Already 3-4 years in the league, and still producing nothing. He's been terrible this year, what a bum. Waste of a #1 pick.

3. Michael Olowokandi - Averaging like 10 points per game in his career, waste of size...he's a bum as well. Clippers wasted their high pick on him.

4. Jerome James - One good series against the Kings lands him a $30 million dollar contract, for a 5 points per game player. Now that he has a fat contract, he's injured all of a sudden and not playing so well anymore. What a coincidence.

5. Dajuan Wagner - Top 5 pick, not even in the NBA anymore. All he did was jack up shots when he played, and he wasn't hitting any them. Prolly won't ever see him in the league. What a bum.

How many GM's have overpaid a player based on 1 playoff series? Croshere, Tim Thomas, etc. when are teams gonna learn.

As for Juanny he was good his rookie year, and a series of injuries and health problems killed his progress. I wouldn't necesarilly classify him as a bum, he played with effort, just had alot of bad luck.

The funny thing is, when posters try to speak on talent of prospective players and current players, some guy always loves to say "well these are professional talent scouts, so they KNOW talent or lack thereof better than anyone"

Then you have guys like JJ, Dampier and Foyle getting overpaid.

Woooo now.... don't put JJ in the same sentence as Eric "I'm the best center in the league" Dampier and Agonal "My agent had sex with the Golden State GM to get me my contract" Foyle.

how is Dijon Thompson a bum? Isn't he in the developmental league? He hasn't even played a game in NBA.

Scalabrine. $15,000,000 (fifteen million dollars) to average 1.8 points off 40.9% shooting (one rebound and .3 assists) and a turnover in 9.3 minutes per game. His PER? .4 (in comparison, Paul Pierce's is 28.5). Fifteen million dollars.
