Stephen Curry is currently the 4th highest paid player on the Golden State Warriors. Curry has been asked by multiple sources would he consider leaving the Warriors if he does not get a beefy contract. Stephen Curry is watching everyone around him get paid while he is stuck making $11 Million per year. People are inferring he will leave if he doesn’t get a max deal. Curry responded by saying
“One thing my pops always told me is you never count another man’s money. 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.”
Stephen Curry is not concerning himself with the amount of money his teammates are making. Golden State Warriors detractors want the money to divide Curry and the team. The Baby Faced Assassin is not allowing that talk to infiltrate his mind. Curry is approaching his contract from a point of gratitude rather than negativity.
Steph realizes he is blessed to be making the amount of money he does yearly. Most players would allow contract negotiations to hang a dark cloud over their season. Stephen Curry is not allowing contracts dictate his play nor his mind state. Warrior’s goal is to win a championship. Curry believes the money will take are of itself.
