3 Reasons Stephen Curry's Extension Was a Risky Move by the Warriors

Stephen Curry will face an enormous amount of pressure to perform well after signing a four-year, $44 million contract extension.

The Golden State Warriors inked star point guard Stephen Curry to a four-year contract extension on Wednesday, locking up their franchise cornerstone for the foreseeable future. The question is–was it a smart deal?

No one can deny Curry's talent. He can score 30 points on any given night and is one of the best shooters in the NBA. But a recurring ankle issue sidelined him for 40 games last season and his production dipped severely. The ankle required surgery and Curry tweaked it again in a recent preseason game.

There are many other reasons why the Warriors' decision to extend Curry is risky. Ultimately, it comes down to whether or not Curry can get on the floor. The Warriors had better hope so, or their risky investment will be for naught.
