Stephen Curry has expressed his interest in becoming an NBA team owner or joining an ownership group in the future. In a recent interview with NBC Sports Bay Area, Curry mentioned his fascination with understanding the business side of the NBA and where the future of the league is headed. He also expressed his eagerness to be part of an ownership group that is committed to winning and connecting with the community and fan base.
Curry’s interest in NBA ownership comes at a time when there is no Black majority owner in any of the four major American sports leagues. NBA legends like Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Dwyane Wade, and Grant Hill have become prominent figures in sports ownership, with Curry and LeBron James also expressing their desire to join in on this trend.
On the basketball court, Curry has been excelling in the 2023-24 season, leading the league in points while shooting impressive percentages from the field, three-point range, and the foul line. Despite his individual success, Curry remains focused on his team’s performance, with the Golden State Warriors holding the sixth-shortest odds to win this season’s championship according to various sportsbooks.
As Curry continues to make an impact both on and off the court, his aspirations of becoming an NBA team owner or part-owner are sure to be closely followed by fans, analysts, and future owners alike.
