    Golden State Warriors guard and reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry banged the "Keep Pounding" drum for the Carolina Panthers before the team took the field prior to Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium.

    Within a few minutes of the end of the game, Curry tweeted a single character, the skull emoji.

    Curry, who grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina, and played at nearby Davidson College, is a huge Panthers fan. He even wore Panthers gear at Warriors practice the day of the NFC championship.

    Curry also hit the drum before the team's home opener against the Houston Texans. The Panthers viewed it as a good luck since they didn't lose at home all season.

    Hitting the drum before the game is a tradition honoring the late Sam Mills, a former Panthers linebacker and coach who died of intestinal cancer inspired the message of "Keep Pounding."
