Time for the annual win share post. There were 1,254 win shares in the league last year and 486 different players earned a portion of one. The league paid those combined players a total of $2,837,352,725 in salary. So that means the average win share cost teams $2,262,641 last year. What I'm doing using James Harden as an example. He made $26,540,100 last year and produced an even 15 win shares. Multiply the 15 in shares by the average price of a win share and you get (15 * 2,262,641) = $33,939,636. So according to that, Harden outperformed his contract last year by $7,399,526. Here you can see the top 20 value contracts in the NBA last year. This doesn't necessarily mean t hey are the best players. It just means their contracts are the best value for the output they provide. As you can see, this is dominated by cheap rookie contracts. Here is a top 20 with rookies removed. I might have missed one or two. As you can see by the #51 by Kemba Walker, 30 of the top 50 were rookies. And of course the 20 worse value contracts last year. Some of these guys were hurt. If you want to play around with this you can find the spreadsheet at the link below.
