A Sea of Overpaid Hoopsters has an excellent section on NBA team and individual player salaries.

The site lists 30 NBA players who made more than $12.5 million this past season. The names on the list are just astonishing. It's hard to fathom just how these players (and their agents) were able to persuade a team into offering a yearly, double-digit contract. Here's some of the ugly contracts courtesy of the list:

2. Dikembe Mutombo New Jersey / Houston
3. Allan Houston New York
-. Chris Webber Philadelphia
7. Anfernee Hardaway New York $14,625,000

-. Antoine Walker Boston
-. Shareef Abdur-Rahim Portland

-. Stephon Marbury New York $14,625,000
-. Zydrunas Illgauskas Cleveland $14,625,000
14. Michael Finley Dallas $14,609,375
15. Grant Hill Orlando $14,487,000
-. Keith Van Horn Dallas $14,487,000
-. Jalen Rose Toronto $14,487,000
-. Latrell Sprewell Minnesota $14,462,500
22. Eddie Jones Miami $13,455,000
23. Brian Grant LA Lakers $13,233,434
24. Tim Thomas New York $12,900,000
29. Damon Stoudamire Portland $12,500,000

Their's talk that this summer we will see Michael Redd cash in on a big deal such as these.
