18. John Koncak

Year: 1989
Contract: $13 million/ Six years
Team: Atlanta Hawks
Jon Koncak never made an All-Star team and only spent nine years in the league, but he made history in the short time he was there. As a reserve, his unheard of $13 million six-year contract at the time earned him more than Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, and Larry Bird. SMH, all that and they couldn't even spell dude's name correctly.
