The CJ Problem: How to understand when the cap hit is too much

SteveL1003 just did a fan post that got me thinking, (If you can call what I do "thinking".) The law of diminishing returns would say that there is a point where additional resources (salary cap) not only does not produce additional benefits but reduces benefits. The benefit, of course, being the winning of games. This would apply to CJ and any other player given limited cap resources, so there must be a point where his pay is detrimental to the team. I've only just pulled out the spreadsheet and I'm trying to see what tools are out there to help give me more perspective on it.

This is, after all, about winning games and there are various elements that contribute to it. Given that there are limited resources to apply to these elements then there must be limits on how much any element receives.

The “Calvin Problem”, if there really is one, seems to go to this issue. What I’d like to know from all you knowledgeable POD’s is at what point would you say that Calvin’s salary becomes prohibitive and why? How would you go about measuring this?
