Yep. This is a perfect example of why the NBA might lose a season. These owners have done a pathetic job paying these players what they are actually worth.
Here's a hint owners:
Just because a few teams overpay these guys does not mean everyone has to.
Nene is a nice player. That is all. He's a career 12 and 7 guy. He's missed basically two full seasons due to injury. His best year was 15/8.
He's worth about 6 million a year. But he'll get a lot more than that because stupid teams like the Mavericks are willing to pay Haywood over 8 million a year for 5 years.
What a joke.
