Redskins fan Kevin Durant trolls Panthers fan Steph Curry after Week 6 win

Redskins fan Kevin Durant trolls Panthers fan Steph Curry after Week 6 win

There's nothing like a little hometown rivalry and Golden State Warriors stars Kevin Durant and Steph Curry are well-aware. 

The Redskins are in first place in the NFC East after beating the Panthers 23-17 in Week 6, the team's first win over the Panthers since 2006. Durant, a Washington, D.C. native and avid Redskins fan wanted to make sure Curry, a Charlotte native, and avid Panthers fan, got the message.

On Kevin Durant's Instagram story, he picks up a blue and black sneaker on his bench and yells, "EW. Somebody get these pieces of s*** out of here," tossing the shoe at Panthers fan, Steph Curry.

Curry and Durant are loyal to their hometowns and have always rooted for Carolina and D.C. respectively.

They're also feeling pretty good with the NBA regular-season starting on Tuesday, Oct. 16

NFL medical chief Andrew Sills is 'optimistic' about season going as scheduled

NFL medical chief Andrew Sills is 'optimistic' about season going as scheduled

The coronavirus pandemic has prevented all NFL offseason activities from happening in a normal fashion, as free agency, the NFL Draft and all OTAs have been done virtually.

The NFL has had the luxury other professional sports leagues have not, as their regular season has not yet been impacted by the virus. And NFL medical chief Andrew Sills remains confident that the league will be able to conduct a normal season come the fall.

"I think that I personally remain very optimistic that we’re going to be able to have a 2020 season and have it along the schedule that we’ve planned,” Sills said in an interview with the Washington Post.

"That’s what we’re planning toward," Sills continued. "But we recognize that we have to continue to evaluate the state of the pandemic and what’s happening across the country and what the current public health guidelines are."

Sills' comments come on the same day as reports that coaches are allowed to return to their respective team facilities on Friday. According to a memo sent leaguewide, teams are now allowed to have 100 employees on the premises.

Earlier this week, the NFL announced that teams would be required to hold training camp at their respective team facilities, rather than travel to an offsite location. The Redskins were one of 10 teams a season ago that held their annual camp in another city.

The next step for the NFL to determine is when players can report to team facilities. As of now, only players that are recovering from an injury or undergoing medical treatment can report.

As far as when that next step will be, Sills said "I don’t have a specific time interval that I can give you at this point."

Report: NFL coaches allowed back in the office on Friday

NFL coaches are set to return to team facilities on Friday after working from home the past three months due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to a league memo obtained by Pro Football Talk. 

The return is still based on local and state governments permitting team headquarters to open. Teams are allowed 100 employees on the premises total, which will now include those coaches where applicable. The NFL also said in the memo that it will work with club medical staffs to implement COVID-19 testing for coaches and other football personnel prior to players being allowed to return to those facilities. 

“Coaches and other football staff, particularly those who may be in a higher risk category or who have concerns about their own health conditions, are expected to speak with the club medical staff or personal physician about any special precautions or other accommodations that may be appropriate for their particular circumstances,” the memo states.
