There are only eight players in the NBA that are worth a max contract right now. I call these eight players "true superstars," because they are the only players in the league with a chance to win an NBA Championship in the next couple of seasons.
Unfortunately, there are a couple of dozen players being paid like superstars, and that is the biggest reason we are in Day 121 of this NBA Lockout. The players can't accept the simple truth that there are only eight superstar players. The owners aren't smart enough to figure out that there are only eight superstar players.
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is why we are in the middle of an NBA Lockout!
Carlos Boozer isn't worth a max deal. Chris Bosh isn't worth a max deal. Gilbert Arenas isn't worth a max deal. Rashard Lewis isn't worth a max deal.
I could go on, and on, and on.
There are only eight "superstar players" in the NBA right now, and those are the eight players that should be signed to a max contract.
