NBA Player Salaries, Ranked ('09-10)

http://www.depressedfan.com/assets_c/2009/12/iguodala120709poster-thumb-350x251-11643.jpg
Since the argument over Andre Iguodala's worth vs. his salary seems to never end (and yes, I realize I'm more guilty than anyone), I realized there was some flawed logic to the post I wrote last month. Explanation and a monster list after the jump.

When I wrote that post, I compared Iguodala to the best performers in the league, based on win shares. Then I listed the salaries of the players on the list to see how Iguodala's deal measured up. The flaw in the logic was that we were only looking at the contracts handed out that actually paid off. That's an incomplete picture. We're leaving out all the players who are grossly overpaid, and I think they should be involved in the conversation as well.

So here's your comprehensive list. All the players in the NBA, ranked by their 2009-2010 salary. Sixers are in bold, players in parenthesis have been waived or bought out of their current contracts, the number next to them is the amount of salary counting against the cap for the team that cut/bought them out. Salary figures drawn from Story Tellers.
