NBA’s Steph Curry Says Moon Landing Was Fake; NASA Commander Schools Him Hard

The NBA’s Steph Curry, a player for the Golden State Warriors, said that he doesn’t believe Americans landed on the moon. Curry, well known for saying that President Trump’s “rhetoric” is based on “longstanding racism,” was quickly schooled by NASA, and by NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, the former commander of the International Space Station.

The Daily Wire reported:

“Steph Curry is one of basketball’s best, sinking bombs nightly from all over the court.

But the NBA star fired up a mental airball on Monday when he said he doesn’t think man ever landed on the moon.

The comments came when the Golden State Warriors guard appeared on the “Winging It” podcast with two basketball player hosts. At one point, for some reason, Curry asked the others if they thought the United States had ever put a man on the moon, The New York Times reports.

“We ever been to the moon?” he asked.

The others, in unison, agreed that the answer was no.

“They’re going to come get us,” Curry replied. “Sorry, I don’t want to start conspiracies.”

Annie Finberg, a digital content coordinator for the Atlanta Hawks and another host of the podcast, followed up, asking Curry, “You don’t think so?”

“Nuh uh,” he said.

Finberg then “expressed some skepticism, asking Curry to clarify, and he said he did not believe the United States had landed on the moon, leading to a short discussion of some of the more popular conspiracy theories, including one asserting that the film director Stanley Kubrick had staged the entire thing,” the Times writes.”

And that’s when Commander Kelly stepped in, Tweeting this:

The Wire article added this about NASA’s response to Curry:

“NASA has heard all the theories before and kept a sense of humor about the latest from Curry — they invited him to swing by their lab.”

“We’d love for Mr. Curry to tour the lunar lab at our Johnson Space Center in Houston, perhaps the next time the Warriors are in town to play the Rockets,” said Allard Beutel, a NASA spokesman. “We have hundreds of pounds of moon rocks stored there, and the Apollo mission control. During his visit, he can see firsthand what we did 50 years ago, as well as what we’re doing now to go back to the moon in the coming years, but this time to stay.”

When Curry said that President Trump’s “rhetoric” is based on “longstanding racism,” he was referring to the time Trump inferred that Curry’s fellow NBA star, Lebron James, was dumb. The president Tweeted:

“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”

The Mercury News reported on Curry’s response to President Trump:

“Curry, who’s not immune to the President’s ire, doubled down on his support for James [Lebron] while criticizing Trump during a practice round of golf at TPC Stonebrae in Hayward Tuesday evening.

“Frustration,” said Curry, who will participate in Ellie Mae Classic Thursday. “That rhetoric is all based in some longstanding racism in terms of black men with a voice in power. Unfortunately, that’s being revealed more and more as the days go on.”

So basically what we have here is Steph Curry saying that Trump is a racist for inferring that Lebron isn’t too bright, and then Curry goes on to show how intelligent he is by saying that we never landed on the moon. Who knew the NBA was full of rocket scientists?! Can’t make this stuff up, folks!
