Here's a list of 2008-09 incumbents who couldn't crack this season's list or honorable mention:
Hedo Turkoglu (No. 39 last year) roped Bryan Colangelo into a $53 million "if this doesn't work out, I'm getting fired, anyway" deal ...Our toughest 2010 omissions go from "not so tough" to "agonizingly tough":
Andrea Bargnani: Memo Okur 2.0, with the added bonus that he started a Miami Vice Beard Club with Jose Calderon. Still, I like my starting centers to grab eight rebounds a game. Hell, I'd settle for seven.Group C: "It Makes Us Angry That You'd Even Ask"
12. Chris Bosh: As for Bosh, I hate All-Star Games because nobody tries for three quarters and the game rarely reaches even 40 percent of its potential. Still, it's a must-watch because the cream of the under-30 crop reveals itself in crunch time, and this year, Bosh was the best power forward or center in that game. Period. He has even handled the fact that everyone in America has made the "Wait, he looks like one of the leads in 'Avatar'!" joke at least once nicely. Still, if Dallas called Toronto and said, "We'll take Bosh off your hands for Dirk, this way you won't lose him for nothing this summer," Toronto grabs that offer in a heartbeat … right?I love reading Bill Simmons' work. (In fact, I just got his new book in the mail today).The 25 worst contracts in the league that have 3-plus years or at least $25 million remaining...
25. Jose Calderon -- four years, $37.6m
12. Hedo Turkoglu -- five years, $53m
His trade value ranking contains some notable Raptors.
Jose's contract doesn't look too bad even though he's playing back-up minutes. He may be one the most expensive back-up PG's, but he's definitely the best.
Here's hoping Hedo earns his salary in the playoffs!
