Forbes names Carmelo Anthony the most-overpaid player in the NBA
Every year, Forbes magazine releases a list of the most valuable franchises in sports, but recently they have been branching out to do other sports-related money lists. The one they came out with on Tuesday is sure to get people talking.
Forbes took a little-known stat, wins produced, and compared it to the salaries of each NBA player and came up with a list of the 10-most overpaid players in the NBA.
Players who have been injured most of the season, such as Amare Stoudemire and Derrick Rose, weren’t eligible.
No Lakers or Clippers make the list, but a couple of former Clippers are in the top 10.
Who is No. 1? New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony, who has produced 0.7 wins despite being paid $19.4 million.
You can see the full list in the photo gallery above.
