Stephen Curry is a Charlotte guy. That’s where he grew up, his dad is an old-school Hornets legend (and current color commentator). This is where Stephen used to hang around the NBA locker room and players.

Curry is a Carolina Panthers’ fan — he wore a Panthers’ jersey to practice Saturday — and is understandably pumped.

Don’t be shocked if Curry is at the Super Bowl to watch Cam Newton and his childhood team. The Warriors play the Saturday before the Superbowl at home (against Oklahoma City) then are off the day after the game. My guess is he’s got enough pull to get tickets.
