Steph Curry and Kevin Durant are two of the best basketball players in the world, and they’re certainly compensated like it. Forbes just dropped their list of the 100 highest-paid athletes in the world, and the pair of Golden State Warriors superstars both cracked the top ten.

Curry came in ninth overall, with $37.8 million in earnings over the last year, and $42 million in endorsements, for a total of $79.8 million. Durant rounded out the top ten with $30.4 million in earnings and $35 million in endorsements, good for $65.4 million.

Guy tries to get Steph Curry’s autograph right after Warriors lose NBA Finals.
The Toronto Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 on Thursday night to win the NBA championship. So, Warriors players were surely in a terrible mood — even with back-to-back titles entering the season — after the game.

Curry understandably ignored him, with some help from security. Have to admire the stones on this guy trying to get Steph Curry to autograph his Draymond Green jersey minutes after the #NBAFinals ended. pic.twitter.
