It’s not fair, which doesn’t stop it from being hilarious: “Indeed, Marbury earned enough money to buy a pair of his Starbury shoes ($14.98 per pair) every nine seconds. Assuming an average per capita income of $39,000 here in the United States and a $17.8 million settlement, Marbury earned what an average American earns for the year in less than 6 1/2 hours. He also earned the salary of 456 Americans by not playing a single minute for the Knicks.”
