Once underpaid, Stephen Curry, 34, is the only NBA player to sign two $200 million contracts.
The Golden State Warriors' three-point king lives in the Bay Area with his wife, Ayesha, and three kids.
With endorsements, a media business, and growing brand, it's good to be Steph Curry.
Stephen Curry is one of the NBA's all-time greatest players: A two-time MVP, four-time champion, one-time Finals MVP, eight-time All-Star, and the NBA's all-time leader in three-pointers.
Curry has made an estimated $302.8 million over his decorated 14-year NBA career.
Curry was once underpaid, playing on a 4-year, $44 million extension when he won his first two MVP awards. He called it the most team-friendly contract in NBA history.
Curry has made up for those underpaid years. He is currently playing on a four-year, $215 million extension that will pay him $59 million in 2025-26. He became the first NBA player to sign back-to-back $200 million contracts.
Perhaps Curry was destined for stardom. His father, Dell, was an NBA player. Steph used to go to games with Dell, shoot on the court, and even play against other NBA players.
Sportico listed Curry as the 10th highest-paid athlete of 2022, estimating he made $40 million off the court.
Curry's deal with Under Armour was also once a steal, reportedly paying him about $4 million a year. He is now reportedly working on a lifetime deal that is rumored to be worth over $1 billion. He also now has an ownership stake in the business.
In 2020, Under Armour launched Curry Brand in the footsteps of Jordan Brand with Nike.
A Morgan Stanley analyst once predicted that Curry could be worth $14 billion to Under Armour.
And he has tons of other endorsements, too. Curry has starred in commercials for CarMax, Subway, Apple, State Farm, Brita, Degree, Rakuten, and more.
Curry was doing endorsements from an early age. As a kid, he starred in a Burger King commercial with his dad.
He started SC30 to manage his brand partnerships and investments. The company's LinkedIn page says it has 16 employees.
Curry also has his own media company, Unanimous Media. They have numerous projects, the most famous of which may be "Holey Moley," a golf game show on ABC.
Not all of Curry's investments have paid off. He got an ownership stake in FTX, which recently declared bankruptcy. Curry is one of several athletes the Texas State Securities Board is investigating for securities violations.

Curry's wife, Ayesha, has also become a business mogul. She's released cookbooks, started a pop-up restaurant, and appeared on cooking shows.
Ayesha also started her own food and lifestyle brand called Sweet July.
Ayesha and Stephen's little sister Sydel also have their own wine label, Domaine Curry. A bottle of their 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is listed for $128 on Vivino.
In 2019, the Currys launched the Eat. Learn. Play Foundation, which focuses on childhood education and healthy lifestyles. They've reportedly donated over 500,000 books and 25 million meals across Oakland.

You'd be forgiven for feeling like the Currys are, well — everywhere.
They're throwing out pitches at Oakland A's games ...
... at the Met Gala...
... hosting the ESPYs ...
... on "Jimmy Fallon" ...
... and attending movie premieres.
As a die-hard Carolina Panthers fan, he's banged the drum before games.
And he watched Super Bowl 50 from the field.
Steph and Ayesha — who met in high school — find time to do all of this, despite also having three kids, Riley, Ryan, and Cannon.
Riley went viral in 2015 when she amusingly took over one of Steph's postgame press conferences.
Curry once told Draymond Green that his dream luxury would be to have a full-time nanny.
He counts some powerful people as friends. He's golfing buddies and is in regular communication with former President Barack Obama.
During the Warriors' visit to the White House in 2015, Obama imitated Steph's celebration dance.

Curry has gotten more involved in politics. He worked with Stacey Abrams to encourage people to vote.
He hangs out with boxer Canelo Alvarez.
And he posed with BTS's Suga during the Warriors' trip to Japan.
Curry got a mention in one of Drake's more famous songs, "0 to 100." Drake says, "I been Steph Curry with the shot / Been cookin' with the sauce, chef curry with the pot, boy."
Steph and Ayesha made a spoof video of the song during her online cooking show. The video has over 5 million views on YouTube.
When Curry's not on the court, he's often on the golf course.
ESPN's Michael Collins once said that Curry could potentially make the PGA Tour.
He showed off his skills by battling Lydio Ko in a putting session on the Warriors court. Curry nearly sank a 94-foot putt.
He gets to rub shoulders with famous golfers. Here he is with Phil Mickelson at the Workday Charity Classic (which Eat. Learn. Play. helped sponsor).
And with Collin Morikawa at the First Annual Curry Cup in August.
In addition to being an avid golfer, he runs the Underrated Golf tour, which aims to increase golf participation in diverse communities.
Curry helped fund the "rebirth" of Howard University's golf program, to the tune of $1 million, according to Rolling Stone.

Steph and Ayesha started the Curry Family Women's Athletics Initiative at his alma mater, Davidson, to increase scholarships and funds for women's athletics.
Curry went back and got his degree in sociology from Davidson this past year. His thesis was on gender equity in sports.
All this work allows the Currys to live luxuriously. They like to travel during Steph's off-seasons, going everywhere from Ireland ...
... to more exotic locales.
In the rare moments of down-time, Curry unwinds at his $31 million mansion in Atherton, California.
The Currys also bought a $2.1 million home in Winter Park, Florida, this year.
In 2019, Curry sold his Alamo, California, home for $6.3 million, three years after buying it for $5.7 million.
He previously bought a $3.2 million hillside San Francisco home in 2015.

He used to drive a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen as a rookie.
He also had a Porsche Panamera.
Curry is also a fan of luxury watches. One watch in his collection is the Panerai PAM01441 Luminor GMT, which costs $15,000.

Curry doesn't show any signs of slowing down on the court, but off the court, he plans to stay busy, too: "When the ball stops bouncing, the work won't stop. It's just getting started."
