Stephen Curry, the legendary Golden State point guard and NBA superstar celebrated for his exceptional shooting skills, is well on his way to cementing his position among the highest-earning athletes in NBA history.

According to data tracked by Billionaires.Africa, Curry is set to achieve a remarkable milestone in his career as he eyes total career earnings of $354.72 million at the end of the 2023-2024 season.

As the 2023-2024 NBA season unfolds, Curry is on the cusp of becoming the first NBA player to cross the $50 million salary threshold in a single season, as he is set to earn an astonishing $51.9 million by the end of the new season which runs from Oct. 24, 2023 to April 14, 2024.

With his projected career earnings of $354.72 million by the end of the 2023-2024 season, Curry now claims the fourth spot on the list of the NBA’s highest career earners, solidifying his place among the world’s highest-paid athletes.

Despite his impressive earnings, Curry trails behind Chris Paul and Kevin Durant, who hold the third and second positions, with total estimated career earnings of $389.91 million and $396.71 million, respectively.

The undisputed leader of the pack is LeBron James, with a staggering $479.47 million in total career earnings. If James continues his current contract and exercises the option for the next season, he is projected to surpass the $530-million mark by 2025.

Stephen Curry is set to reach $101.9 million in total earnings this new season

While Curry‘s on-court earnings are set to make NBA history, his off-court ventures play a pivotal role in boosting his total income.

His various entrepreneurial endeavors, including a flourishing media business with Unanimous, are expected to contribute an impressive $50 million to his overall earnings for the 2023-2024 season. This will bring his total earnings for the season to an astounding $101.9 million.

Curry’s recent contract extension with Under Armour in March, accompanied by $75 million in stock, sets the stage for a prosperous post-retirement period. This deal not only secures his financial future but also cements his status as one of the most marketable athletes in the world.

As Curry continues to make history on the court and capitalize on his off-court ventures, he remains a shining example of how talent, hard work, and astute financial decisions can lead to unparalleled success in the world of professional sports.
