8. "Chris Bosh is way overpaid."

At least Bosh has made it to the Finals for the past four years. Pau Gasol, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony, Joe Johnson, Amar’e Stoudemire, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kobe Bryant all make more than CB, and they can't say the same.

11. "He's always injured and can barely score anymore."
