15 Worst Contracts in American Sports History

9 of 21

8. Joe Johnson, Atlanta Hawks

Contract: Six years, $119 million

In the Summer of 2010, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Amar’e Stoudemire were all free agents. None of them signed for as much money as Joe Johnson. But it all paid off in the 2010-2011 season, when Johnson established himself as the best player in the NBA. Hahaha! I’m kidding. Johnson is a serviceable scorer on a slightly above average team. Apparently that’s worth around $20 million a year. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/John Bazemore)
