Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry were doing very different jobs at Super Bowl 50

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant were in attendance at Levi's Stadium as the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers 24-10 at Super Bowl 50, but they were both doing very different jobs.

Curry, a long-time fan of the Panthers, had his own jersey and space in the locker room ahead of the showpiece event and was chosen to bang the 'Keep Pounding' drum as the Carolina franchise entered the field. 

Durant, who scored 40 at Oracle Arena on Saturday night as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell 116-108 to the Golden State Warriors, was pitchside in Santa Clara as a credentialed photographer for the Players' Tribune.

Durant is Deputy Publisher at the Tribune and had his game face on during the Super Bowl as he jostled for position with a number of professional photographers from the world's biggest organisations.  

It proved to be a disappointing night for Steph, as his Panthers were demolished by the Broncos' relentless pass rush.

Following the game, Curry took to Twitter to show the world just how upset he was at the defeat after Carolina had gone 15-1 in the regular season.

It is now back to business for the previous two NBA regular-season MVPs. After the match-up at Oracle between the two Western Conference rivals, there are only six days to go until they team up under Gregg Popovich in the All-Star game.

The Warriors host the Houston Rockets in the early hours of Wednesday morning before a road game in Phoenix the next day. The Thunder play the Suns at the Talking Stick Resort Arena on Tuesday morning before welcoming the Pelicans to Oklahoma City.
