It's all about the Benjamins, baby, and why would professional football be any different?
Rap mogul Diddy and Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry headline a group led by billionaire Michael Rubin that will submit a bid to buy the Carolina Panthers. Diddy and Curry would become minority owners of the Panthers if the bid is approved, while Rubin would be the majority owner.
Rubin also holds minority ownership stakes in the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Devils, and Crystal Palace of the Premier League.
Curry is an avid Panthers fan and initially expressed interest in buying a minority stake in the franchise when it was put up for sale.
Diddy also expressed interest in no uncertain terms.
Panthers owner Jerry Richardson announced his intention to sell the team on Dec. 17, the same day Sports Illustrated released a story in which four former Panthers employees said Richardson engaged in inappropriate workplace conduct.
