Amid reports that a potential ownership group for the Carolina Panthers featuring Stephen Curry has backed out of a $2.5 billion bid for the team, the Warriors guard says he still hopes to have an ownership stake in the franchise. “Definitely,” Curry said Thursday afternoon. “Not a distraction but definitely something I’m working on. Trying to figure out the right moves and the right partners, Curry said. “You’ll hear stuff when I’m ready for that to make that be known all the way around but its still ongoing.”
“To be able to be a part of something that represents Charlotte so well in my hometown,” Curry. “I know a lot of the guys that play for the team and what they represent.” Aside from the allure of owning a professional team in his hometown, Curry expressed intrigue in being the first African American owner in NFL history. “Knowing and having an opportunity to break that trend and stat, why not?” Curry said. “That’s a pretty powerful opportunity, and one that I know doesn’t come around that often. There’s not a lot of turnover in NFL ownership.”

The 22-year-old is going all out.
