Shortly after it was announced that Steph Curry would sign a $201 million USD five-year extension with the Golden State Warriors, LeBron James took to Twitter to give his two-cents on how much more he felt Steph should be making. “So tell me again why there’s a cap on how much a player should get?” LeBron questioned. “Don’t answer that. Steph should be getting 400 million this summer five years.”

Like Steph, even though James is one of the best players in the NBA, he isn’t making much more money than a lot of players who aren’t nearly as good as him, mainly due to a salary structure that boosts the NBA’s middle-class and caps the salaries of its stars. Fortunately, NBA stars don’t have to worry too much about the suppressed salaries because endorsement deals are what really pay the best. Check out LeBron’s tweet below.
