That was in 2012, though. Given his recent play, Curry’s contract has to be considered one of the biggest bargains in the NBA lately. The MVP of the the 2014-15 made less money than 61 NBA players last season and was actually just the fourth highest-paid of his team.

Take a look at the graphic above and the table below to see how he stacks up financially with previous NBA MVPs.
