The 5-0 Carolina Panthers are one of the NFL's five undefeated teams, so you can't blame their fans for feeling a little
That includes Panthers super fan and reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry, who used the Panthers' Week 6 victory over the Seahawks to troll NBA rival and Seattle native Nate Robinson:
Before you go calling Curry a bandwagon fan, know this: He grew up in Charlotte, is tight with Panthers QB Cam Newton and was a special guest of the team in Week 2 to beat their signature "Keep pounding" drum.
But give it to Robinson: He took the troll in stride, and didn't hide from being put on blast. Instead, he called out his team (and coach) for their subpar play before offering an intriguing solution to their struggles.

Hey, when your team beats your friend's team -- and is undefeated -- you hold all the bragging rights in any football discussion. Of course, if Robinson wants to pull out the NFL trump card, he could always bring up Super Bowl wins -- but that may lead to an NBA MVP conversation he probably wouldn't enjoy.
Nate Robinson joins Nuggets
Nate Robinson is packing his travel bags for the seventh time in his eight-year NBA career after signing with the Denver Nuggets. This change comes after playing in a career-high 82 games for the Bulls last season in which he averaged 13.1 points in the regular season and a thrilling 16.3 points in the postseason. The Nuggets could use a spark plug, having lost in the playoffs in the first round four years in a row. In addition to signing Robinson, Denver has a new head coach in Brian Shaw as well as a new general manager. Will all the moves pay off?
