 Chris's Pistons Page
I started by compiling a list of all NBA players during the 2003-2004 season that had significant contracts (more than a minimum contract based on their NBA experience), or those players making minimum money that made a significant impact during the season (determined later to be an efficiency rating of 2.0 or higher).
This list of salaries was a nice place to start, with the next step being to find out what those players did with their contracts.
To determine what NBA players did the most with what they were paid, I subtracted the percent of the average efficiency for each player from their percent of the average salary they made.
