Along with being one of the best basketball players in the world, Steph Curry showed he's also a great sport after honouring a bet over the weekend. 

The back-to-back MVP, who is a big fan of NFL franchise the Carolina Panthers, attended their game against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday and was spotted wearing a Raiders jersey. 

His beloved Panthers lost the game 35-32 and that left Curry on the losing side of a pre-game bet.

Details of the bet and with whom are unknown, but credit to the Golden State Warriors star for taking the loss with dignity, especially doing so in public at a high-profile game.

ESPN writer Marc J. Spears tweeted a picture of the All-Star point guard sporting the Raiders jersey in a suite at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum.

Steph himself took to Twitter after the game to explain himself and pledge his allegiance to the Panthers.

As seen on his wife Ayesha's Instagram page, Curry wasn't wearing a Raiders jersey throughout the encounter. 

He may have had to endure his favourite team suffer a loss which sees them drop to 4-7, but the good news for the NBA's three-point king is that he and the Warriors are having a much better season and currently have the league's best record at 15-2.
