His new status as one of the top players in the NBA has seen him being rewarded with a mega rise.

Curry’s new deal with the Golden State Warriors is the biggest in NBA history surpassing the five-year £ $153 deal Mike Conley signed in 2016 with the Memphis Grizzlies.

After congratulating Curry, another NBA top gun LeBron James took to Twitter to state that his rival is still being unpaid.
