Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Stephen Curry Want To Buy The Panthers


After yesterday’s announcement that Jerry Richardson plans on selling the Carolina Panthers at the end of this season, several celebrities and business figures began announcing on social media their desire to buy the team.

Two of the most serious announcements undoubtedly came from legendary rapper Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs (aka Puff Daddy) and NBA star Stephen Curry.

Diddy announced his intentions in a series of Tweets;

and a very personal video message on his Instagram account;

In his Instagram video, Diddy calls our team the “North Carolina Panthers”, says he will be the “best owner you could imagine”, and also says he will sign Colin Kaepernick and put him in the running to be next year’s starting quarterback.

Stephen Curry’s announcement was slightly more subtle…simply saying “I want in!” in response to Diddy’s tweets;

Diddy then responded back by saying “Holla at me, let’s get it!”

Given Diddy’s estimated 2017 net worth of $820 million, and the fact that Stephen Curry will make over $47 million in 2017 alone, the two may have enough money between them to buy the franchise…depending on how close their bid gets to it’s recent $2.2 billion valuation.
