Stephen Curry serves as Panthers' drummer for SB50


The most famous Carolina Panthers fan will take part in Sunday's Super Bowl.

The team announced that NBA MVP Stephen Curry banged the Panthers' Keep Pounding drum prior to kickoff.

"Keep Pounding" became a team mantra in honor of late Carolina Panthers player and coach Sam Mills, who used the phrase prior to a Panthers' playoff game versus the Dallas Cowboys on Jan. 2, 2004.

The honorary drummer rallies the crowd during Panthers home games. Curry was a guest drummer earlier this season, banging the drum prior to a Sept. 20 win over the Houston Texans.
