Forbes have announced the top 10 " NBA Most Overpaid 2013", and it features several Magic players...

Forbes have made a shock wave in the basketball community when they announced that Knicks SF/PF Carmelo Anthony is this years most overpaid NBA player along with 2011 MVP Dirk Nowitzki as being overpaid. Other players making the list are quite familiar to the Magic fanbase - SF Hedo Turkoglu and SG Aaron Afflalo. I think Forbes nailed a lot of correct picks-SF Rudy Gay and F Stephen Jackson are good examples- , but I think they also made a few errors.

One of the few things I think is flawed is their standards. Within the article, they attempted to address their standards with this quote " A note on making judgment calls for hurt players: we generally didn't include strong players that have missed significant time with injuries recently, like Derek Rose or Amare Stoudomire", but they change their stance when addressing why they included Turkoglu. To summarize, they list his previous lack of performance as the main reason to include him, but the title of their article pertains to the performance of the player this year and not from previous performances.

Players like PG Gilbert Arenas or F Elton Brand deserves a spot on this list. What's your opinion?
