How the NBA is building its new superstar class
4FourTwo article The NBA is trying to add a new superstar this summer and the league’s biggest star, the Golden State Warriors, have been working hard to get their own superstar on the court.
The Warriors’ roster is loaded with talent.
They have five All-Stars, including Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson, Andrew Bogut and Drayton Martin.
But the team’s star power has been waning, with Stephen Curry having just five years left on his contract and the Warriors being in a rebuilding mode.
The team’s new superstar, KCP, has been a key component in their success.
The rookie out of Kansas State averaged 22.8 points per game this season and had four triple-doubles.
The NBA and ESPN have already reported that KCP will sign a five-year, $120 million contract, but it will be interesting to see if he signs it on the same day as Curry’s contract.
Curry, who is entering his sixth season in the NBA, is in a contract year, meaning he will earn $32 million this season.
The Golden State franchise is expected to be worth around $3 billion this season, according to Forbes.
Curry and the Golden States are expected to earn around $50 million for this season — the second highest in the league.
The contract also includes a $12 million buyout for next season, which is the second largest in the history of the league — just behind the $15 million buyouts that the Oklahoma City Thunder are expected be able to get for Kevin Durant.
Curry is expected play a key role in the Warriors’ rebuilding plan and will likely be the franchise’s centerpiece, but he will likely need to earn more money in order to stay healthy.
Curry has been one of the most consistent players in the game and his impact has been evident throughout his career.
He averaged 19.3 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.5 blocks per game, making him one of NBA history’s most valuable players.
He was named MVP of the NBA Finals in 2016 after averaging 22.3 ppg and 9.8 rpg.
Curry’s offensive numbers were a key reason why the Warriors were able to reach the NBA finals in 2017.
Curry averaged 21.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game as a rookie and the 6-foot-9 guard was one of just four players to average double figures in points, rebounds and assists in the same season in NBA history.
Curry scored a career-high 36 points and 12 rebounds as the Warriors won Game 7 of the 2017 NBA Finals.
KCP has had success off the court, too.
He played in more games (14) and had a career high 15 assists.
He also has a great deal of success on it, averaging 21.6 points and 9 rebounds per game.
In 2018, KTC won a gold medal with Team USA at the FIBA World Cup.
He has become one of their key contributors on the floor and will be one of a few key pieces to the Warriors success.
K-Pop star, Kim Jong Un, has praised KCP and the NBA for their success this year.
In a video posted on his Instagram account, Kim said, “The NBA is the greatest league ever.
My wish is for KCP to be on my team for the next three years.
I’m really proud of KCP.
He’s an NBA legend, a great player, and a great person.
It’s so great to have him on our team.”
Kim has been known to publicly congratulate KCP on his achievements and has also been a fan of the Warriors and KCP’s career.
