Who makes more money: Lebron James or Stephen Curry? Lebron, by a long shot. But does Tristan Thompson – the fourth highest-paid Cavs player – make more than the league-leader in scoring this season?

Curry’s four-year, $44 million contract, which was signed before his breakout season, has been called the NBA’s biggest bargain. And there’s some truth to that statement. Consider this: There are four Warriors players and 53 NBA players that made more money than Curry this season. Lucky for him he’s making a cool $12 million in estimated endorsements off-the-court, according to Forbes. Still, come contract negotiation time, you can bet the back-to-back MVP winner will be angling for a significant pay bump.
