Curry Makes Just as Much AWAY From the Court

Sport: Basketball

Career Highlights: 3-time NBA champion, 2-time NBA MVP, 5-time NBA All-Star

Annual Endorsement Earnings: $42 million

Steph Curry gets paid plenty for his play on the court.

Curry's 5-year, $201 million contract makes him the highest-paid player in the NBA.

The Warriors view Curry's salary as a wise investment, as the 30-year-old point guard is the gold standard for long-range shooting in the league.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr praised Curry's abilities in a 2017 SFGate.com article. "He is the most impactful offensive player, in terms of what he does to the defense, maybe ever," Kerr said of his point guard.

But like so many of his teammates and competitors, Curry's salary doesn't tell the whole story.

With contracts with JBL, Nissan, Chase and Under Armour, Curry collects an additional $42 million annually in endorsements.
