15 Worst Contracts in American Sports History

8 of 21

9. Stephon Marbury, Phoenix Suns (Paid Almost Entirely By the Knicks)

Contract: Four years, $76 million

The Suns realized soon after signing Marbury that if they freed up cap space they could get their hands on Steve Nash, a far better point guard. But who would take a whiner, malcontent and awful teammate off their hands for that much money? Enter Isaiah Thomas. Two weeks after becoming President of the Knicks, Thomas started his astounding streak of signing every overrated, overpaid player he could get his hands on. The Suns got Nash and became a perennial contender. The Knicks got Marbury, who whined and behaved like a petulant child for most of his time in New York, threatened coaches when they wouldn’t start him, and never led the team to a playoff win. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Stephen J.
