In the 2021-22 season, he put up 25.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 6.3 assists.
He also secured the Finals MVP trophy for the very first time, if you can believe it.
There is yet another impressive thing about Curry: he’s the NBA’s highest-paid player with $48.1 million for the 2022-23 season.

This point has led to a major question with no right answer: is Curry overpaid, underpaid, or is this number just right?
There are many opinions on this matter and, as mentioned, none of them are technically right or wrong.
As people debate if Curry is worth this sum, it’s important to see what he’s done for his team and the league.
But Curry sits at the top and many people consider that money well spent.
Curry is the face of the Warriors.
He has changed the team as well as the league: he has helped transform his squad into a legitimate dynasty and probably the most accomplished team of this generation.
Meanwhile, numerous up-and-coming players have modeled their style off of Curry, effectively altering the way the league works and putting more importance on three-point shooting and offense.
How much do you pay someone who has quite literally changed the way the world sees modern basketball?
Is Curry still worth so much at this point in his career and at this age?
Considering the fact that he just helped his team win yet another NBA Finals, most people would say absolutely.
