Stephen Curry's Net Worth 2024

Stephen Curry did not earn a lot early in his NBA career. Now, having established himself as one of the best players in the league, he is one of the highest-earning basketball players in the world. He became the first player to sign a $200 million contract in 2017. The sharpshooter signed a four-year $215.35 million contract extension with the Golden State Warriors in 2021, with an annual average salary of $53 million. And while doing so, he also became the first player to sign two straight contracts worth over $200 million.

Curry has an estimated net worth of $160 million, according to recent reports. He has earned over $354,721,977 over 15 seasons with the Golden State Warriors. Also, like most world-class athletes, Steph earns a lot from endorsements and partnerships as well. In 2022, he was the 5th highest-paid athlete in the world earning $92.8 million, with $45.8 million in NBA salary and $47 million in endorsements.

The early life of Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry was born on March 14, 1988, in Akron, Ohio. The four-time NBA champion was brought up in Charlotte, North Carolina. After graduating from Charlotte Christian High School, Curry joined Davidson College in 2006. The point guard slowly but steadily became one of the best college players in the country. After three years of college, Curry declared for the NBA draft in 2009. He later completed his bachelor's degree in sociology in May 2022.

Stephen Curry’s family and personal life

Stephen Curry was born to NBA veteran Dell and Sonya Curry. Much like Steph, Dell was a sharpshooter as well and played 16 seasons in the league, with 10 of them spent with the Hornets. Steph was born just two years after his father entered the NBA. So, naturally, he grew up around the league. The two-time NBA MVP has two younger siblings: Seth and Sydel Curry. Seth currently plays for the Dallas Mavericks, signing a two-year contract in 2023.

Steph married Ayesha Curry in 2011 in front of friends and family, after dating for a few years. The couple has three children together: Riley, Ryan, and Canon Curry. Given Curry's popularity, his children are in the spotlight as well and have quickly become internet sensations.

Stephen Curry’s career timeline

Stephen Curry was not dreaming of playing college basketball for Davidson College. However, most D1 college coaches thought Curry was too small and slight. Davidson was the only D1 college to offer him a scholarship because the head coach, Rob McKillop, believed in his abilities. It was a blessing in disguise for The Baby-Faced Assassin, as he improved consistently for the Wildcats. He soon became one of the best college players in the country. After three years of college basketball from 2006 to 2009 with some impressive performances, he declared for the NBA draft.

The Golden State Warriors selected Steph as the 7th overall pick, arguably the best decision the team has ever made. However, Curry did not bring success to the team overnight. Even though Curry showed flashes of greatness after entering the league, he suffered from multiple injuries that often kept him sidelined. So the Warriors' decision to draft the young star was under scrutiny.

At the time, Monta Ellis was the best player on the team. Despite Curry's injury woes, they continued to believe in him and his abilities. In 2012, the Dubs traded Ellis to the Milwaukee Bucks and showed their intention to build the team around Curry, which was considered a major gamble by many. Safe to say, it has paid off in multiple folds. And no one is questioning the decision now.

As Curry improved his overall health and fitness, he started playing at a high level consistently. Curry won back-to-back MVP awards in 2015 and 2016, with the second one making him the first-ever unanimous award recipient. He led the Warriors to their first championship in 40 years in 2015 and won again in 2017 and 2018.

After a few disappointing seasons, the Warriors were back at the top of the tree as Curry won the Finals MVP award for the first time in 2022 after leading the Warriors to their fourth title in eight years.

In 2023, Curry surpassed Wilt Chamberlain (7,216) for the most field goals made in Warriors history with 7,222. He also became the first player in NBA history to score at least 10,000 career points off of three-pointers.

Against the Sacramento Kings, Curry became the first player to score 50 points in a Game 7 and surpassed Kevin Durant's previous record of 48 points before being overtaken by Celtics’ Jayson Tatum.
