We can easily say that Kenny is overpaid, all he does is talk about basketball. But, as in any profession/market, he is worth whatever the market says he is worth. As long as the NBA generates multi-billions, it's athletes will be paid accordingly.

You think the nba is bad? Look at baseball players.
Overpaid is not even the word.

some players are overpaid relative to other players, but the players collectively are not overpaid.

pennies.....their still making way more then regular working citizens...
the average citizen doesn't work half as hard as professional athletes, and those that do excel in their professions end up making great money, quit complaining, you get paid what you DESERVE. There are people out here getting 6 figures just for speaking engagements, most people are so used to being @ the bottom they don't realize how much money is out there. A million dollar is not a lot of money

take into consideration how much money they generate for the franchise, for the city, and how many jobs they create. now take all of that into account and how much money are they seeing from that annually? a small percentage. they aren't overpaid.


if you compare their jobs to other jobs like physicians, nurses, police officers, etc., then yeah their salaries tower in comparison but do those jobs generate revenue? are you willing to pay extra on your taxes to see these professionals get paid a comparative wage? chances are you'd scoff at the idea. the point is, these players generate a huge amount of income annually - they deserved to be broken off.
yea you right on the business side of it but still some players are getting over paid as far as their performance on the court. I rather teams over pay a player on his actually value. you right when it comes to the business. which is a reason why the nba is more about the business side than the competitiveness. if their was less teams and a hard cap then the nba would be more competitive and less scrubs in the nba. what is their 32 teams and only 3 or 4 realistically are contenders every year with 16 teams in the playoffs.

Business is business and nba and their team owners make a sh*t load of money so the players should get paid good. It's a entertainment business at the end of the day.

which is why I fu*ks with college more.

I just don't understand how you can say that these players aren't worth the money they get paid when even guys with max contracts are still seeing pennies compared to what the NBA makes off of these guys, They've made BILLIONS off Kobe,Lebron and Shaq's careers ALONE! and now they force people to go to college and play for free while some coach gets a million dollars and the school/Ncaa profit off their image and talents. Thats just me though , how yall feel bout it is kenny hating because benchwarmers are making more in 3 years then he did his entire career?

i was following you until you said this bullsh*t...how much do you think kenny smith is making right now? and how do you know how much he made during his career?

He's right but they also have to take in consideration the amount of money the owners get from "owning" these players... without the players, the NBA wouldn't exist so they do need a bigger portion of what is generated by them playing ball...

and what about the fact that superstar rookies have to take pennies on their first contract now while their team and the league makes 8 figure profits off him alone.
Those players haven't proven anything that's why. Look at all the busts in the past couple of years, imagine how much money players like Greg Oden would've got coming out of college if there were no rookie salaries.

The rookie salary is fine.
