Stephen Curry wants to help Diddy buy the NFL's Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers have announced Tina Becker has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer and been given full control of the day-to-day management of the organization.

All of this comes in the wake of Richardson being accused of workplace misconduct, including sexual harassment and using a racial slur toward a team employee.

If NFL owner Jerry Richardson is looking for potential suitors for his upcoming sale of the Carolina Panthers, Sean "Diddy" Combs wants him to look no further. However, his followup tweet made it sound like he was very serious. Richardson said in 2009 that his family owns 48% of the team, according to The Charlotte Observer.

Only one team in all of professional sports has a black owner - the NBA's Charlotte Hornets, whose controling interest is held by basketball legend Michael Jordan.

Obviously, Thomas is having a little fun here, but it is an interesting idea for a group of players, or even players and fans, to pool resources and buy a team.

"These have been some of the most hard days of my 19 years with the Panthers, but I am lifted up by the strong resolve and the commitment our employees have shown to this organization", Becker said in a story posted on Panthers.com.


The Panthers announced Friday that the team had launched an internal investigation into Richardson's workplace misconduct.

No word on how that sits with current QB Cam Newton.

Golden State Warriors point guard Steph Curry tweeted, "I want in!" shortly after Diddy posted the video. "Let's make it happen!" I will immediately address the Colin Kaepernick situation and put him in the running for starting quarterback.

"I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership", Richardson said.

"I think the National Football League should take the lead on the investigation so that everything is on the up and up", said Jenkins. In May, his estranged wife arranged for the Sterling Family Trust to sell the team for $2 billion.
