Back in December of last year, Stephen Curry was all over the headlines and it wasn’t because of basketball. He weighted in on the big moon landing event and said that he thought it was nothing but a big hoax. As soon as NASA saw this, they offered the NBA superstar a tour of all the evidence they have on the moon landing.
Curry first talked about his view on things during an interview on
the Ringer’s “Winging It” podcast with Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore. After he said that the moon landing in 1969 never happened, a representative from NASA demanded to talk to him and turn him into a believer. That same representative later told reporters that they were willing to allow Curry to check out their lunar labs and all the evidence that proves it all really went down. NASA spokesperson Allard Beutel explained:
“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. We have hundreds of pounds of Moon rocks stored there and the Apollo mission control. During his visit, he can see first-hand 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.”
We don’t really know if Curry took NASA up on their offer, but it must have been something worth thinking about.
Curry and his team, the Golden State Warriors, are well on their way to play in the NBA Finals yet another year. Since he joined the team back in 2009, Curry has had quite a successful run that has resulted in two back-to-back wins in 2017 and 2018. If they continue playing like they are now, the Warriors could add a third championship win to their list.
