Steph Curry has landed in a controversy for his statements about man landing on the moon.
Curry sparked a few conspiracy theories about NASA scripting the entire man landing on moon event with his statements on the ‘Winging It’ podcast with Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore.
Andre Iguodala too was present during the podcast and he along with Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore too agreed to Curry’s claim.

Curry: ‘We ever been to the moon?’
Everyone at the podcast: ‘Nope.’
Curry: ‘They’re gonna come get us. I don’t think so, either.’
A lot of Americans believe that the moon landing was staged, especially because of the way the flag is seen hovering in ‘that photograph’. The conspiracy theory has lived on and has affected the two time MVP as well.
Things did not end there, as NASA took note of Curry’s statements, and replied back to the Warriors guard with an invite to the Lunar Lab at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.
NASA have confirmed that they’ll show Curry around and let him experience first hand what exactly transpired close to 50 years ago.
They then further went onto reveal their future plans, confirming that they are working towards not just landing on the moon, but also staying on it.
“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,” NASA replied.
“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.” he added.
Atlanta Hawks digital content coordinator Annie Finberg asked Curry if he really believed in the conspiracy theory of man not landing on moon.

Curry then confirmed that he actually did not believe that man landed on moon, something that science teachers across the nation would be unhappy about.
Curry is not the only high profile player to believe in conspiracy theories, with Kyrie Irving openly stating that he believed that the Earth was flat.
