Default Worse contract: Amar'e Stoudemire or Joe Johnson?

So Amare will be robbing the Knicks for an additional 45.1 million over the next 2 years after playing 29 games this year and being a compete detriment to the team while out there. Somehow his numbers look alright but he plays 0 defense, gets scored on every time. And literally cannot rebound for shit, gives up tons of offensive boards that should have been easy rebounds. He can still score somewhat, that's it


Joe Johnson has 3 years left set to make about 60 million, ouch. JJ can still score and was pretty clutch for the Nets this season but it's still a hell of a lot of money for a guy who shoots that much without doing much else. He actually seems like he kind of fits on this Nets team but every hardcore Nets fan i've talked too isn't too impressed with him


So who'd you rather have for the remainder of their contract? Has Amare surpassed Joe as worst contract in the league?

Both deadweight so I'll take the one with the shorter contract.

Meanwhile the knicks play better without Amare playing.. Make his benching a net positive.

I don't get why the Knicks didn't just stick with David Lee. He's cheaper and he's a much better player.

Fortune telling is cheap these days too.

Actually, it's Knick's management that decided to throw money away. If it's free why not take it?

Easily JJ. At least he has some confidence and still hits big shots.

Amare is a mental/physical wreck, and I'm not sure he'll ever be a starting caliber NBA player again.

ummm. definitely JJ. because it was the knicks who signed amare. i appreciate amare for making that jump to the knicks in his chance to bring respectability to a franchise that had been sorry as hell for 10 years. unfortunately, he keeps getting hurt and the knicks brought along a player that does not make him any better, takes away a lot of his touches. plus amare keeps getting hurt every year, and he is a non factor for 3 straight fckin postseasons

so maybe amare's really is worse

Completely agree but I was actually a big fan of Lee in his NY days and was always pretty high on him. Honestly, I always thought his ceiling was a good starter but he even surprised me making the allstar team and being sortof a sold #2 option. I swear the guys always oozed 15/15 potential to me. I actually own a David Lee NYK jersey that I bought his rookie year, I doubt many people have one of those. I also have a NYK Jamal Crawford if anyone's looking for obscure jerseys

not only does jj play, but amare's contract isn't even insured. amare might be the worst contract in the league since gilbert arenas. worst 3 contracts i can think of in the last ten or so years...1. gilbert 2. amare 3. rashard lewis
