I was so inspired by my own genius yesterday that I decided to add some more players salaries for comparison. Just a quick note, this list is for Centers only and doesn’t include anyone on their rookie contract.


Tony Battie: 4,7 points, 3.9 rebounds, .4 bpg, 2009 salary $5.7 million
Mark Blount: 3.1 points, 1.5 rebounds, .4 bpg, 2009 salary $8.5 million
Andris Biedrins: 13.5 points, 12.1 rebounds, 1.7 bpg, 2009 salary $9 million
Kwame Brown: 3.4 points, 4 rebounds, .5 bpg, 2009 salary $4 million
Tyson Chandler: 9 points, 8 rebounds, 1.4 bpg, 2009 salary $11.3 million
Erick Dampier: 5 points, 7 rebounds, 1.3 bpg, 2009 salary $11.5 million
Dan Gadzuric: 3.4 points, 3.4 points, .6 bpg, 2009 salary $6.2 million
Brendan Haywood, (was injured for all but six games this season), 2009 salary $5.5 million
Nene Hilario, 15 points, 8 rebounds, 1.4 blocks, 2009 salary $9.6 million
Chris Kaman, 14 points, 9 rebounds, 2 bpg, 2009 salary $9.5 million
Darko Milicic, 6 points, 5 rebounds, 1 bpg, 2009 salary $7 million
Brad Miller, 12 points, 8 rebounds, .6 bpg, 2009 salary $11.3 million
Nazr Mohammed: 2.4 points, 2 rebounds, .5 bpg, 2009 salary $6 million
Jermaine O’Neal, 13.2 points, 7 rebounds, 1.8 bpg, 2009 salary $21.3 million
Shaquille O’Neal, 18 points, 9 rebounds, 1.6 bpg, 2009 salary $21 million
Rasheed Wallace, 12 points, 8 rebounds, 1.4 bpg, 2009 salary $14 million


Wow, that’s quite a list. Who would have thought that Jermaine would be the higher paid O’Neal. Further, Perk is being paid the same amount of money as Kwame Brown? I think our point is proven.
