Rounded salaries to nearest million:

Lebron 37
Davis. 27
Green 15
KCP. 8
Deng 5
Bradley 5
McGee. 4
Cousins, Cook, Dudley, Rondo, AC, Howard, 3
Kuzma , Morris. 2
Waiters, THT. 1

Average NBA salary this year $7.7 million. For me it’s hard to outplay your salary if you are at the average salary or above. Guys below the 7.7 million have the best chance to outplay their pay. For me, here are the guys that are a bargain for us so far, based on game play and contribution to winning:

AC, Howard, Kuzma, and maybe Morris.

I think Bron and Brow are outplaying their contract too, both looking like top-3 players in league

Caruso and Howard i agree with. Morris hasn't been with the team long enough. Kuzma has played like what he is... An inconsistent young player with a lot of hype behind him, though he is cheap.

I think Lebron and AD have to bring back a title, I expect more with that kind of cheddar they are making.

I’m a Kuzma fan, I just think his two way production is very good for the money, not a lot of forwards making just under two million significantly out performing him in the league, especially late first round or second round picks.

I would love to see Caruso start next season..

Also I wish they would quit calling him "AC", since I think of AC Green FIRST every time, yeah, I know I'm old...

Fans of other teams hate AC because they think he's reserving his best game against their team. They don't realize he brings it every night in every aspect except scoring, and we have a lot of scorers.

Well said 👍

If Caruso was on their team, they would be hyping him up. Since they don’t watch him often, they see this balding player with a headband inexplicably making plays on their top stars.

LMAO @ Kuz for bumping Harden a lil to the left forcing him to do a left handed layup and having Caruso time in for a block.

I think it’s funny that Lebron referee to Caruso as the GOAT early on in an IG post. I swear these athletes read every tweet ever sent. 😆
