Steph congratulates Brady on NFC Championship victory

Tom Brady celebrates NFC championship

Steph Curry is a proud Carolina Panthers fan from his days growing up in Charlotte, but the Warriors star congratulated Tom Brady on Sunday after his Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game at Lambeau Field.

"This guy is something else!! Congrats @tombrady," Curry's caption read on his Instagram story.

Both are Under Armour athletes, and have hit the links together in years past.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers told NBC Sports Bay Area in November that he'd like Curry to be the Warriors' version of Brady in terms of his longevity in the league. Brady, 43, advanced to his 10th Super Bowl with Sunday's win, and will be wrapping up his 21st NFL season.

As many noted on social media after Brady's win, he now has advanced to the Super Bowl in 47.6 percent of his NFL seasons, technically making him more likely to make it to the event than Curry is of making a 3-point shot in his NBA career (43.3 percent).

Steph still has some work to do if he wants to catch up to Brady's six (potentially seven by the end of the day on Feb. 7) championships.
