O’Neal is the third player to join the NBA straight out of high school and gets credit for being at one time an All-Star performer for six years from 2001-2007 with the Indiana Pacers and for having staying power. O’Neal has played 18 seasons with seven different teams and made $$23 million in 2009-2012 with the Heat.
9) Chris Webber ― $178,230,697
The former No. 1 overall pick and second member from the “Fab Five” from the Michigan Wolverines (Howard) was one of the better players of his generation who I believe gets lost in the shuffle when discussing the best players from his era. Webber was a five-time All-Star with career averages of 20.2 points, 9.8 rebounds and 4.2 assists as one of the more all-around big men who made $19.1 million at his peak with the Sacramento Kings.
