Curry Loses Bet, Dons Raiders Jersey Versus Hometown Panthers

Stephen Curry is a Carolina fan through and through, but the Warriors superstar was seen sporting the "Silver and Black" at this weekend's game between the Oakalnd Raiders and Curry's hometown Carolina Panthers, which the Raiders won 35-32.

Curry tweeted Sunday evening to explain the photo of him in a Derek Carr jersey was the result of a lost bet.

"Never a doubt I'm riding with my @Panthers 4eva. #KeepPounding in my blood! But A bet is a bet! #RaiderNation y'all know how to do it right!"

Curry didn't sport the Raiders jersey all game, however, as evidenced by Ayesha Curry's Instagram post depicting Stephen in Panthers gear with the caption: "We're so Bay Area but you can't forget where ya came from!"

According to another tweet, Curry's teammate Kevin Durant, whose allegience lies with Washington, also attended the game and also showed Raider Nation love: "I'm a Washington Redskin until I die but that atmosphere in the coliseum for a Raider game is just.....wow! Great game, sorry @StephenCurry30."
