Forbes' NBA’s Most Overpaid Players has already sparked conversation, and Stephen Jackson–who's No. 8 on the list–had some things to say about it. He revealed that he had a mixed reaction about the list when he spoke to reporters. Jackson said he was happy to be mentioned among the likes of Dirk Nowitzki and Carmelo Anthony, but at the same time, he believes they shouldn't even be on the list in the first place. Besides, Jackson does know a thing or two about overpaid players; he did play with Jim McIlvaine (his 2.7 points per game, 3.1 rebounds per game career average should say enough) after all.
He robbed the league with no mask, no type of weapon, he just went in there and said give me all the $99 million or something and played one year in Seattle and New Jersey. Jim McIlvaine should be number one. At least I got a championship.
Jackson also believed whoever wrote the list is "Somebody that’s dying inside, probably." Also, somehow the conversation steered to toward Jackson co-writing "Afternoon Delight." Random sidebar.
