WALNUT CREEK, Calif. (AP) A rich new contract in hand, Stephen Curry is more determined than ever to give back both his time and financial resources wherever he is needed in the Bay Area.
The Golden State Warriors superstar has yet to even make a major purchase for himself since finalizing the $201 million, five-year contract in July. While on vacation last month in the Turks and Caicos the day his new deal became official he did have a little fun flying his drone over the hotel to get some special photos.
"I don't want to get too deep into it but for the last couple years trying to figure out how I can make the most impact off the court on a consistent and impactful basis," the 29-year-old Curry said Monday, going on two months after winning another NBA title. "Going forward and obviously keying in on the Bay Area specifically to hopefully leave a lasting impact for all the good that has happened in my life and my family here since I've been here the last eight years. Obviously over the next five to really impact the community for the better and use my platform, not only just dollars but my platform and connections and ideas to make that happen. The contract puts more of a responsibility to make that happen and I'm obviously aware of that. And I have a great team around me that's going to help me do that."
