After a conversation about questions people ask when they are high, and how moviemakers know what sounds dinosaurs made, Curry abruptly pivoted.
"We ever been to the moon?" the point guard asked. He was met with a chorus of no's.
“They’re going to come get us," Curry added. "Sorry, I don’t want to start any conspiracies.”
Finberg interjected with, "You don't think so?"
"I don’t think so," Curry responded, at which point someone recommends Finberg research Stanley Kubrick, a film director who some conspiracy theorists believe helped fake the footage of the first manned moon landing in 1969.
I admit I'm a little disappointed, simply because I sometimes like watching Curry play.
Curry claims he was joking. If you listen to the audio of what he said in context, it doesn't really sound like he was because they also go on to discuss the conspiracy theory that Stanley Kubrick filmed the moon landing footage and he seemed to be receptive to that idea. I think he might've just been going along with what the other dudes were saying just for the hell of it. I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt here and conclude that he doesn't actually believe the conspiracy theory.
NBA superstar Steph Curry said he was kidding when he said he doesn't believe humans landed on the moon.
"Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast," the Golden State Warriors guard told ESPN on Wednesday. "I was silently protesting how stupid it was that people actually took that quote and made it law."
While appearing on an episode of the podcast "Winging It," which posted Monday, Curry asked fellow NBA players Vince Carter, Kent Bazemore and Andre Iguodala "We ever been to the moon?"
When they said no, according to Bleacher Report, Curry responded: "They're gonna come get us. I don't think so, either."
At least he's spinning this around to hopefully use his platform to educate:
Curry told ESPN that he is "definitely" going to take NASA up on the offer. "I am going to educate myself firsthand on everything that NASA has done and shine a light on their tremendous work over the years," Curry told ESPN. "And hopefully people understand that education is power, informing yourself is power."
Curry told ESPN that he especially wants to send a message to children who follow him and other public figures.
"For kids out there that hang on every word that we say, which is important, understand that you should not believe something just because somebody says it," Curry told the sports network. "You should do your homework and understand what you actually believe."
