15 Worst Contracts in American Sports History

3 of 21

14. Jerome James, New York Knicks

Contract: Five years, $30 million

After a brief burst in the playoffs, James was signed to an outlandish contract with the Knicks. It was lambasted the day it was made, and the critics were more than vindicated. James was thrilled with the big money, so much so that he decided to quick working out, and he reported to camp overweight and indifferent. The highlight of his Knicks career came in 2005-2006, when he averaged 3 PPG. In his final two years on the Knicks he scored a grand total of 10 points.—Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Tom Strickland)
