With four NBA championships, two MVP titles, and a reputation as the best shooter in NBA history to his name, Steph Curry is undoubtedly one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He definitely lives up to his stardom off the court, too, as proven by his famous wife and hefty salary on the NBA and TV golf show.
According to Forbes, Curry’s earnings of $92.8 million in 2022 made him the fifth highest paid athlete on the planet. $45.8 million of that amount came from his salary and winnings, while endorsements amounted to $47 million.
The Golden State Warriors star signed the NBA’s first $200 million deal in 2017, and became the first player to sign two such deals when he agreed to a four-year, $215 million extension in 2021.
The 34-year-old owns his own company – SC30 – managing his investments, brand partnerships and other ventures. One such partnership is with Under Armor – in 2020 it launched the Curry Brand as a competitor to Nike’s Jordan Brand.

Curry married Canadian-American actress, cookbook author, and culinary television personality Aisha Alexander in 2011. The couple first met at a church youth group in Charlotte, North Carolina, when they were teenagers, but didn’t start dating until years later. .
Born in Ontario, Canada, Ayesha attended high school in Charlotte before moving to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. She appeared in a number of part roles and had a short-lived food show on the Food Network.
Golf TV show
Curry’s main passion aside from basketball is golf. He started playing when he was just 10 years old and plays in famous golf tournaments.
This passion led him to appear as the host of the ABC sports reality TV show Holey Moley. The contestants compete against each other in a series of head-to-head matches on a miniature golf course that features huge obstacles.
With his experience on the greens, Curry is the pro golfer of the show.
