Should ID be given in URL if already secured with JWT containing ID?

If I wanted to DELETE a user authenticated with a JWT token that contains the user object, should this DELETE handled go under /users or /users/?

It makes sense to have under the /users/ endpoint as you're deleting that specific item.

But also makes sense to have it under /users as then you don't have redundant data and you don't have to enter the every time you want to perform a function on your user when you already have the JWT authentication.

This idea falls to many-to-many objects too, say I wanted to access /users//games//move stripping '/users/' makes it seem like there's not 'user' resource but it makes it less clunky and again less data redundancy.

Which is more 'accepted' or 'right'?

Please Help.


I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
