Sean Combs, more commonly known as Diddy, expressed his interest in buying the Carolina Panthers late Sunday, and he was offered help buy Warriors player Stephen Curry. After Diddy announced on social media that his plans to buy the team were "no joke," Curry said: "I want in!"

Curry, who currently plays for the Golden State Warriors of the NBA, has a net worth of $77 million. With an estimated $280 million of net worth, Diddy plans to take over the Panthers as he wants to make history by becoming the first majority African-American owner in the NFL. An NFL team, on average, costs about $1 billion to purchase, but according to reports, Diddy will be able to purchase the Panthers.

According to the Forbes, Curry ranked No. 6 among the top-paid athletes at $47 million from salary and endorsements. Meanwhile, Diddy topped Forbes’ Richest In Hip-Hop of 2017 thanks to deals with Ciroc, Aquahydrate, DeLeon and his stake in the TV network Revolt. 

Diddy's decision to own the Panthers comes in the wake of Jerry Richardson's sexual harassment scandal. On Friday, Richardson was accused of inappropriate workplace behavior, and hours later the Carolina Panthers announced that the team will be sold. Richardson founded the Panthers in 1993.

In the statement on the Panthers website, Richardson wrote that he had "no greater mission or purpose" in life than bringing "an NFL franchise to Charlotte."

Richardson also mentioned that "the team has become an integral part of our community. The stadium is in its best condition since the day it opened." He continued: "Football is also an integral part of my life -- and I am blessed, every day, that I made the Carolinas my home. I can never repay all of you for the kindness and generosity you have shown me, Rosalind, and my family for more than two decades."

Richardson noted that "I believe that it is time to turn the franchise over to new ownership. Therefore, I will put the team up for sale at the conclusion of this NFL season. We will not begin the sale process, nor will we entertain any inquiries, until the very last game is played."

This is not the first time Diddy spoke out about NFL’s lack of diversity. In October, Diddy said, “Facts,” in retweeting a post that stated, “Black players are 70% of the NFL. We have the power to defend Colin Kaepernick and Jemele Hill from the forces that would silence them.”

Diddy followed that with tweets in which he said, “I did have a dream to own an NFL team but now my dream is to own our own league! A league where you can be yourself. Have a retirement plan. Have the freedom to be a great human and protest for your people without being demonized for your beliefs as a KING!!”

During the same time, he made a proposal that the NFL must be sold to him amid the ongoing controversy that sparked after former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Kaepernick kneeled during the national anthem last season as part of a protest against police brutality. In his Twitter rant, Diddy said that players would be able to express their beliefs without issue if he ran the NFL.
