Stephen Curry Makes Less Than 81 Other NBA Players & Is Okay With It

January 16, 2017
Two-time NBA MVP Stephen Curry makes less money than 81 other NBA players. Why? Because he signed his contract four years ago when he had injury issues and hadn't developed into the MVP is today.

Is he okay being less than he's theoretically worth? Yes, because of something his dad once told him.

"One thing my pops always told me is you never count another man's money," Curry told Tim Kawakami of The Mercury News. "It's what you've got and how you take care of it. And if I'm complaining about $44 million over four years, then I've got other issues in my life."

Love that guy! A note to other celebrities: Those of us in the general public don't like it when you complain that the millions you make aren't enough.

If you are worried about Curry, don't be. He's expected to sign a new contract this summer worth over $200 million!
