Despite the wealth of information available to NBA scouts and executives these days, there is still no correct way to calculate a player's value.
The analytical crowd has done their part offering up various measures of effectiveness like player efficiency ratings and win shares. The more traditional minds tend to focus on the intangibles a player brings to his team like hustle and effort.
And even in the absence of a hard salary cap, a player's contract worth has to be factored into the equation.
With so many variables shaping the conversation, players can be overvalued in a number of ways.
Some simply can't match their performance to their economic level. Others find themselves blocking their franchises' paths to improvements by keeping younger, more efficient players off the floor or even off the roster.
While their rap sheets may vary, all of the players on this list are guilty of the inexact crime of being overvalued.
