CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Stephen Curry wasn’t happy the Golden State Warriors lost in his home city of Charlotte to the Hornets on Sunday night.
But the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player was pretty excited that earlier in the day quarterback Cam Newton returned in a big way to help the Carolina Panthers beat the first-place Cardinals 34-10 in Arizona.
Newton re-signed with Carolina this past Thursday. Curry said it was “true Cam fashion” that he ran for a touchdown and threw for a score the first two times he touched the ball.
Curry is a lifelong Panthers fan who had a chance to hit the team’s Keep Pounding drum before the start of Super Bowl 50 in 2016.
