Greg Olsen Questions Stephen Curry's Support of 49ers' Torrey Smith on Twitter

Stephen Curry has always shown support for the Carolina Panthers, but the Golden State Warriors guard displayed local loyalty by endorsing San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith for this year's Walter Payton Man of the Year Charity Challenge.

In addition to handing out the annual Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, the NFL is running a Twitter campaign. The nominee who receives the most hashtag mentions will net $25,000 to donate to a charity of his choice.

Curry encouraged his 7.78 million Twitter followers to vote for Smith, which drew the ire of Greg Olsen. The Panthers tight end reminded the NBA MVP of his NFL fandom with a shot of Curry hitting Carolina's "Keep Pounding" drum.

The battle for Curry's affection sparked Smith to weigh in, and there were evidently no hard feelings between the two NFL players:

Besides, they both may have received a bump from the exchange. Smith leads the race, but Olsen has a comfortable second-place edge over Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Arthur Moats.
