Who should be on the "Most Overpaid players Team"?

In your opinion who are the most overpaid guys in the league?

My team:

C:Jerome James-The Knicks gave him a mega contract after that one good fluke playoff series when he was in Seattle, he hasnt done anything since.

Pf-Kwame Brown-The fact that he's even making any money makes him overpaid. He should have been drafted to the Circus.

SF: Luke Walton- he's like the most over-paid bench player ever. The Lakers gave him like a 5 year $25 mil. contract. This guy cant do anything right.

Sg:Corey Maggette- why did the Warriors give him so much money? It still baffles me, he's so one-dimensional.

Pg: Stephon Marbury- If I remember correctly, he has the highest Annual Salary in the league. He's a selfish ballhog, and doesn't make any of his teammates better.

    All good answers. I agree with some of them. here..we..go...

    Center - Ben Wallace (makes $14,500,000)

    Yea, yea, he hustles and rebounds well. But Anderson Vareajo makes much less than half of Wallace's 14+ mil, and he could step in and do that.

    Detroit got a favor from Chicago giving the former undrafted free agent HUGE money, and the Cavs, needing size, took the big guy in a deal last season. (Note: Cleveland's payroll of $92,648,946 is 3rd in the league behind Dallas and the Knicks, #1)

    PF - Zack Randolph (makes $14,666,667) Man, Portland fell in love with a scorer when they gave him the deal. Luckily, Isiah Thomas was there to take him off their hands and help them rebuild. The Man does not hustle, is lazy at too many moments, and makes more money than Elton Brand.

    SF - Wally Szczerbiak (makes $13,275,000) Boston, Minnesota, Seattle...all were happy to unload his salary. Now Cleveland (did i mention 3rd highest payroll) has it and a good night for this guy is 12 and 3..off the bench.

    Guards- Kidd, MARBURY, Hinrich, Redd, and don't forget Houston gave Steve Francis over $18 mil...to ride the pine.

    I think you are being a little hard on Luke, he had a mini break out season in 2006 when he averaged 12 4 4, and shot 40% from 3-pts, the Lakers really struggled after he and Odom went out with injuries. To me Walton is worth about 3-4 mil/year, and he can actually put up 12 4 4 on a crappy team,

    Marion is making 17mil, for a guy that can't create his own shot, and basicly gets paid for his defensive skills and highlights, 17mil is way too much when the likes of Ron Artest and Bruce Brown are all making less than 7 mil.
