Back in 2012, Steph Curry signed a four-year, $44 million extension with Golden State Warriors, amid lingering concerns about his ankle injury.
At the time, Curry was aware of the concerns, saying “My ankle was a big factor in the [contract extension] number.” In the previous season, Curry was limited to 26 games with his scoring average dropping to 14.7 points. “They had to protect themselves a little bit,” he said.
Five years later, the two-time NBA MVP has earned his keep, landing the richest deal in NBA history.
According to ESPN, the eight-year veteran has agreed to a five-year, $201 million extension with the Golden State Warriors to become the first Baller in history to sign a supermax contract, crossing the $200 million threshold.
For five consecutive seasons, Curry has led the league in 3-pointers, ranking 10th of all time, emerging as one of the best players in the league.
Congratulations to the two-time NBA MVP, four-time All-Star and three-time All-NBA first team baller, Steph Curry.
