The Carolina Panthers are up for sale, and one potential buyer, Michael Rubin, has reportedly brought in Stephen Curry and Sean “Diddy” Combs as co-investors. Rubin, has part ownership in three other franchises, Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils and the Premier League's Crystal Palace. Combs tweeted his desire to buy the team, saying “I would like to buy the @Panthers. Spread the word. Retweet!”, while Curry responded by saying, "Obviously I have a day job, but I've got people that are plugged in and are trying to see how to make that happen. Nothing really to say about it besides that I'm very interested and very willing to do what it takes to make that happen.”
