Just read this about Chandler. He is overpaid there is no question and this will put it to rest. His 14 million dollar a year contract will burry us. Like I have been saying please dont refer to Amare, Melo and Chandler as the big 3. Chandler is not and will never be an elite player in this league to be put in any top/ big 3 category. (Melo and STAT are Elite).

First, let us review the contract, it is worth $58 million over four years, with the first year starting at plus $12 million. This contract increases as time wears on.
Here's the list of players making within $3 million of Chandler:
Josh Smith (12.4), Al Horford (12), Paul Pierce (15.3), Carlos Boozer (13.5), Luol Deng (12.3), Antawn Jamison (15.1), Danny Granger (12), [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (16), [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (16), Dwyane Wade (15.7), Andrew Bogut (12), Deron Williams (16.4), Andre Iguodala (13.5), Elton Brand (17.1), Jason Terry (11.7), David Lee (11.6), Kevin Martin (11.5), Chris Kaman (12.6), Andrew Bynum (14.9), Zach Randolph (15.2), Rudy Gay (15), [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (16.4), Emeka Okafor (12.6), Kevin Durant (13.6), Steve Nash (11.7), LaMarcus Aldridge (12.6), Manu Ginobili (11.9), Tony Parker (12.5), Al Jefferson (14).
I look at this list and see about two players that Chandler is better than: Jamison, and Brand. Prior to those contracts being signed, those two players were far better than Chandler is now in terms of skills, dominance, and marketability.
