WATCH: Is Stephen Curry the next great Carolina Panther?

Stephen Curry turned 27 yesterday, and look who was there to give him a special present. I’m not exactly sure why Ron Rivera was giving Curry a custom jersey, but maybe he thinks the MVP candidate would be a nice option in his secondary. But I don’t know if it’s better than this present, which Curry was given earlier in the day. A cool birthday cake awaits Steph Curry, who...

Would Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera make for a better coordinator?
