Ah, summers in the NBA…
For most players, it’s their offseason. So unless you’re one of the guys that’s been traded or signed with another team, then your summers are busy moving your entire life and getting acclimated to your new team.

It’s now mid-August and we’ve already seen a handful of big-name players switch teams: Chris Paul (from the Clippers to the Rockets), Jimmy Butler (from the Bulls to the Timberwolves), Paul George (from the Pacers to the Thunder), Paul Millsap (from the Hawks to the Nuggets), and Gordon Hayward (from the Jazz to the Celtics).
One player has even been involved in a ridiculous feud with a rookie’s father (Looking at you, Joel Embiid).

We’ve also seen multiple players go to China including Dwyane Wade, Klay Thompson, and Steph Curry.
But maybe Curry should have spent his summer improving on his non-top 10 status.
Safe to say, Steph Curry is living his best life:

Yes, you read that correctly, because according to one unrestricted free agent who was on the Cavaliers’ roster the last two seasons doesn’t put Curry in his Top 10 of best players in the NBA today.
