KEY POINTS

  • Steph Curry is NBA's highest paid player for two years in a row
  • He makes around $40 million per year
  • Aside from Under Armour, he also represents Chase, Brita, Palm, Rakuten and Infiniti

Steph Curry’s net worth ballooned this season after being named the highest paid player in the NBA in 2019. 

Curry may be sidelined at the moment due to injury but that did not stop him from making serious money. He has been the highest paid player in the NBA for two years now. Based on his salary alone, he is set to make $40,231,758 in the 2019-2020 season. With money from ventures and endorsement deals, he received around $80 million in 2019, per Forbes

With his $200 million contract in 2017, Curry will make around $40 million per year. When the deal ends in 2021-22 season, he will rake in a whopping $45.8 million.

The player who many consider as the greatest shooter of all time actually makes more in endorsement deals than his NBA salary. Men’s Health states that his net worth is estimated at $130 million. He represents Under Armour but aside from his shoe deal, he has partnered with brands such as Chase, Brita, Palm, Rakuten and Infiniti.

The two-time MVP is also the creator of SC30, a management company, and Unanimous Media, which has signed a deal with Sony this year. The tie-up with Sony resulted in Curry producing films such as"Emanuel" and "Breakthrough."

The Golden State Warriors star moved to Under Armour after Nike balked at the proposed $4 million per year contract. Experts claim that Nike took an L for this move as Curry’s worth to Under Armour is allegedly worth $14 billion.

What makes the son of Dell Curry the ideal ambassador of brands is his humble beginnings and hard work to get where he is now. Steph Curry overcame a lot of injuries in his early years and he is now considered someone who changed the game. In fact, a lot consider him the player of the decade over LeBron James. Curry won three titles, two MVPs and even helped the Warriors clinch a 73-9 win-loss record, the best ever in NBA history.

Impressivelt, the Davidson College alum never forgets where he came from. His charitable acts have been well-known in the basketball world. He donated his MVP winnings to the East Oakland Youth Development Center in 2015 and helped the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign.

The idea of owning Carolina Panthers has even entered his mind early in 2019. With serious money from endorsements and his NBA salary, Curry can probably own several teams if he decides to give it a try after his career is done. But once he returns from injury and helps Golden State back to its glory days, the sky's the limit for him.
