Don't know if this should go into this section but most of the guys that made the list were NBA players. I guess move it if it needs to be moved but our favorite player on a rival made the list at #20. You guessed it, Michael Finley.

20: Michael Finley

San Antonio Spurs (NBA)
Last Year's Rank: 47

$20,000,000
$500,000
$20,500,000

Still earned $16 million from his former team, Dallas, which waived him as part of collective bargaining agreement's so-called "amnesty provision."

Finley is only 516 thousand behind Webber and Houston, and 843k behind Garnett for highest salary in the entire league

How does he make the list when he isn't paid that amount by the Mavericks? Remember it's down to $5 million with that clause.

Should've included Nba ref's salaries. Cant imagine how much they earned during the Finals, including all the under the table talks they had with Payton and Mourning. "Psst! Mr. referee. (hands the hefty sum of money) how about helping us, at last, reach our career goals of winning an Nba ring eh? (waves thick wad of bills in referees face.) Smells nice eh? How about it?

Heat wins championship. Team raises up Zo and GP on their arms. Good job guys, hella good job. (End)

Speaking of which... ever wonder what that mystery bowl the Heat had in their locker room during the playoffs?! ;)

It was probably one of each of the refs nuts... they were threatening to cut off the other if they didnt win.

They said what was in the bowl. It was some of paper ticket things. I don't know what the hell it meant.

Sorry for the lack of details, but at least now you know it wasn't something like a boiled rabbit.
