The NBA has counted for the last decade with Stephen Curry and Kyrie irving as two of the most dominant point guards of his generation, being prominent scoring figures and incidentally the protagonists of several of the most recent Finals.
This has given both of them the status of NBA stars and, together with it, great salary agreements with their teams, also adding money thanks to contracts with different brands throughout their careers.
Curry has three NBA championship rings with the Golden State Warriors, two MVPs and seven league dream team picks. This has earned him recognition from the league as the greatest shooter of all time and one of the league’s most dominant point guards in its history.
He has $ 208 million in salary earnings and also considering the $ 80 million he has received so far from sponsorships, he has a net worth close to $ 160 million, as calculated by the Celebrity Net Worth portal.
In the case of Irving, seen as one of a young star since his arrival in the league with the Cleveland Cavaliers, he accumulates an NBA championship, seven calls to the All-Star Game and three selections to the league’s ideal team. He has also played for the Boston Cetlics and is currently playing for the Brooklyn Nets.
He has to his credit total earnings of $ 158 million in salaries over 10 seasons in the league, in addition to about $ 70 million from his multiple deals with sponsoring brands, which today means him a net worth of $ 90 million.
It’s clear that not only have the two extra seasons in the league meant more earnings for Curry, but the management of these earnings by the Warriors stars has been noticeably better in contrast to Irving’s handling.
