2012-2013 Salary: $16.4 million
Since being drafted by Chicago Derrick Rose has proven he's able to put a team on his back. Derrick is a quiet killer that relishes the big moment. He's what Stephon Marbury should've been. A diabolical city guard that could take over a game at will. Like his college coach, Rod Strickland, D-Rose will get in the lane by any means and likes to get three-pointers the old fashioned way. All Rose has to do is sure up his defense and learn to pump the brakes. Oh yeah, and stay healthy. Let's see if he can return to form after that devastating knee injury last postseason. If he does, he'll definitely move up these rankings.
