Stephen Curry re-signs for 5 years, $201 Million

Postby Torrid23 » July 1st, 2017, 11:28 am

Is this the beginning of the end of the Warriors dynasty? There was so much discussion about Curry being open to taking a pay cut, and this news with Iguodala potentially leaving spells some trouble

I don't think so. the Warriors have always been pragmatic. Yes, they will probably not be able to escape the luxury tax but they will not go into absurd territory of the apron like LeBron's Cavs.

Don't believe everything the media tells you. It's not even close to that point. They managed to sign Curry to a cheap contract and are insistent on a well-run organization.

Exactly. There's no way to duplicate what the Warriors have done because they have the best shooters in the NBA all on one team and they love to shoot in volume. Until you break up Klay, Steph and KD there's no way anyone can compete with them. Draymond isn't leaving either

Having to deal with a $33M contract this early in the game of trying to keep them together makes it considerably more difficult. Klay and Draymond will have to be renewed in two years. Shooting does go as age goes, because it wears your legs down having to shoot that much from long-range.

Exactly. Paying Steph $40M in his age 33 season is not a favourable look

The cap is going to continue to double and rise and rise. $40M now might end up being $25-30M in a few years in terms of net value.

In terms of how much cap it takes up? you realize that means you think the cap would rise to like $180-$200 million by then

It will rise, money in the nba is just beginning to heat up. especially with these deals and congregating all the stars on one team, you'll see people want to pay infinity for the rights to the big games

Curry is going to be the best of them all. Personally, I believe he's still going to beat all the records there is to beat.

stupid money for a great player. We'll see how he really impacts the team at the end of this contract

You can't honestly think $40M is going to be worth it on the back end of this contract

Yes, $40M is a lot. But most players at 29 don't have the speed Curry has been showing as of late. It seems that Kerr and the rest of the staff are hell bent on keeping their players more fit than anyone else in the league

What player has lasted into their 34 season with the performance they had in the age 29 season?? CP3 might be the only one who MIGHT do it. Ginobili and Parker fell off cliffs. Kobe dropped immensely.

economically investing in a player about to enter his last few years is not advisable. $40M is ridiculous

Warriors are going to be paying for a slowed down Curry in a few years. That just makes no sense from a fiscal and basketball perspective.

Still is a big commitment to a 34yo player. His skill is dependent on his age which is why this deal is so risky, even if it is a feel-good contract

exactly. The best deal would be to offer 3yr/120million in order to get the most out of the deal.

And imagine, there is more money available through TV deals that the owners are swallowing up.

This made him the highest paid NBA Player of all time. I think he deserved every dime. He was underpaid in his previous contract 4 years, $44 million.

That doesn't mean they need to make up for it with a reckless contract. 3 years to the tune of 120 million is a much better, risk averse offer.

Damn. I can't believe that. He might be good, but I don't know if he's good enough to be the highest paid of all time. I doubt he's selling as much merchandise as Jordan back in the day.
