Warriors superstar Steph Curry is a huge Carolina Panthers fan.
He attended the Super Bowl at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara when Carolina lost to the Denver Broncos in February 2016, and was interested in buying a minority stake in the team when it was for sale in 2018.
It's been a wild week for Curry's NFL squad, as the Panthers signed Teddy Bridgewater to be their franchise quarterback and released 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton (who the franchise selected No. 1 overall in 2011).
But the two-time NBA MVP is solely focused on staying in shape and keeping his basketball skills sharp while the NBA season is suspended, right? He doesn't have the time or energy to keep up with everything Carolina is doing, right?
“To be honest with you, we’ve talked more about the Carolina Panthers’ quarterback situation than we’ve talked about anything else,” Brandon Payne -- Curry's personal trainer -- told NBC Sports' Tom Haberstroh this week. “We talked a little bit about workouts and what he can do, but it’s not a whole lot right now.”
Can't blame Curry whatsoever for this. There are more important things to think about right now than basketball.
Such as ... hosting an Instagram Q&A with Dr. Anthony Fauci on Thursday to help spread the word about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, one that had even Barack Obama participating in the session.
Steph is doing his part off the court, when the world needs him most. But through all of that, like most NFL fans, there's still time to talk about his favorite football team.
