Mark Deeks of Sham Sports recently put out a GIF that showed every luxury tax amount a team has paid. As you might expect if you follow these things, the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks lead the way by a very large margin. (What's strange is that the Knicks would have paid more tax if Allan Houston had been on the books for the remainder of his contract, and if they had not amnesty'd Jerome Williams. The Mavericks amnesty'd Michael Finley and the remaining 51 million on his books. Yikes!) There is also a quiz from Deeks on whether or not you know the 7 teams that have not paid the tax. I bet there are a few teams of the 7 that will surprise you.
