While some players like Deandre Jordan make ~10 mil just because of their athleticism ... :/

​Paul George. 2.5 mill but should easily get at least 10 if not more.

Every player you listed is practically on their rookie contract still.

 

Chandler Parsons is on his last year of his rookie contract.

Kenneth Faried is on his rookie contract 3 years / 3.9 million expires (2015)

Isiah Thomas is on the last year of his rookie contract as well.

Eric Bledsoe is on his rookie contract 4 years / 7 million expires (2013/2014)

Avery Bradley is on his rookie contract 4 years / 7 million expries (2014)

 

A majority of rookie contracts never exceed 5 million a year (aside from the top 3 or so picks like Kyrie and Anthony Davis who make 5+ million a year) so they're practically all underpaid until they receive an extension or new contract.  Plus contract amounts for rookies are generally based on what pick they were.   Thats the reason why Isiah Thomas only makes 473k or so because he was a 2nd rounder.

 

If theirs one underpaid player in the NBA outside of a Rookie Contract, it would be OJ Mayo (4 million) IMO.

Faried is under a rookie contract. He's going to get paid when its due. The market will dictate how much though.

Not really fair to keep rookie contracts here in this discussion. Any half-decent to great young player is underpaid. Not sure if you'd consider them underpaid, but some great non-rookie scale contracts include:

 

Tony Parker: $50M/4YR in 2010 ($12.5M yearly)

Joakim Noah: $60M/5YR in 2010 ($12M average per year)

LaMarcus Aldridge: $62.5M/5YR in 2009 ($12.5M average)

Tim Duncan: $30M/3YR in 2012 ($10M average)

Mike Conley: $40M/5YR in 2010 ($8M average)

Jamal Crawford: $21.4M/4YR in 2012 ($5.35M average)

 

Conley and Aldridge were a bit iffy when they were given those extensions, but both blossomed into players well worth their current deals. Huge bargains to be honest. And, as always, San Antonio is extremely smart with their roster and cap space. In comparison to the horrid deals we've seen in the last few years, I'd say each of these was a great move by their respective GMs.

True, but we're talking in terms of legitimately worthy market value here as compared to other players not nearly as good, just the same, or slightly better and getting overpaid massively.

Why?

 

Should the owners and networks make all the money .

 

Do you understand that every one on here has such affection to the games those guys play, that we come here and type about them well after the game is over. Well after the season is over.

 

They are compensated for cash for the JOY they put in people's lives.

 

You think a DOCTOR should make more, when they in my opinion should be servers of the people. 

 

Open your mind
