What is Stephen Curry’s net worth? We have some answers. Born Wardell Stephen Curry II in Akron, Ohio, in 1988, Stephen Curry was destined to be an NBA star. His father, Dell Curry, played in the NBA from 1986 until 2002. When he retired, he was the all-time leader in points for the Charlotte Hornets.
Dell often took Stephen and his brother Seth to his games and would let them on the court during warm-ups. While Dell was finishing up his career playing for the Toronto Raptors, Stephen played for the Queensway Christian College boys’ basketball team and led them to an undefeated season.
After Dell retired, the family moved back to Charlotte, and Stephen enrolled at Charlotte Christian School. He was named all-conference and all-state while his team took home three conference titles.
Curry wanted to play college ball for Virginia Tech, but he was only offered a walk-on spot because of his slender frame. He ended up attending Davidson College. He finished his first season of college ball by leading the Southern Conference in scoring with 21.5 points per game.
He was named Southern Conference Freshman of the Year. In his sophomore year, he led the Southern Conference in scoring again. He also helped Davidson get to the Elite 8 in the NCAA tournament, beating heavy favorites Georgetown and Wisconsin.
After his junior year in college, Stephen Curry entered the 2009 NBA draft and was selected seventh overall by the Golden State Warriors. He appeared in 80 games during the 2009-10 season and averaged 17.5 points per game.
He was voted runner-up for the Rookie of the Year award behind Tyreke Evans. After having surgery on his ankle in 2011, Steph signed a four-year, $44 million contract extension with the Warriors. Needless to say, Stephen Curry’s net worth was ballooning by this time. Many people didn’t like the move because they felt Curry was injury-prone.
Of course, he has since proved the haters wrong. In the 2012-13 season, he averaged a career high of 22.9 points per game and drained 272 three-pointers, breaking Ray Allen’s single season record of 269. The following season, Curry bumped his average up to 24.0 points a game and 8.5 assists. He became the first player in Warriors history to average 24 points and 8 assists in a season.
And then in the 2014-15 season, magic happened. He was the leading vote-getter for the All-Star game and led the Warriors to an impressive 67-win season. He was voted the Most Valuable Player. During the playoffs, Curry became the first player in NBA history to register six three-pointers and six steals in a game. The Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games to win their first NBA championship in 40 years.
In 2019, Stephen Curry’s net worth is at $90 million, thanks to his NBA salary and multiple endorsement deals. He’s come a long way from being denied a starting position at Virginia Tech. He is now at the same wealth level as many other millionaire sports stars including LeBron James, Micheal Jordan and, Magic Johnson
