Warriors star Stephen Curry claims the moon landing was FAKE

  • Curry was appearing on podcast with Andre Iguodala when the topic came up 
  • Said he didn’t believe landing was real, adding ‘they’re gonna come get us’ 
  • Comes months after Kyrie Irving apologized for saying that the Earth was flat 

It looks like Kyrie Irving isn’t the only NBA star who dabbles in conspiracy theories. 

Stephen Curry’s stance on whether the earth is flat remains unknown, but he apparently believes that humans have never actually been to the moon. 

The Golden State Warriors star was appearing on The Ringer’s podcast ‘Winging It’ with teammate Andre Iguodala when he revealed his beliefs.  

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has revealed that he doesn’t believe the moon landing actually happened

Curry and Iguodala were chatting with Atlanta Hawks players Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore – who host the show with Annie Finberg – when they began discussing how filmmakers could know what sounds dinosaurs once made. 

The conversation then turned to the great beyond as Curry asks the group: ‘We ever been to the moon?’ 

Multiple people in the interview say no – although it remains unclear who – and Curry quickly agrees with them.   

‘They’re gonna come get us,’ he says. ‘I don’t think so either.’ 

Finberg then tries to see if Curry is joking, asking him: ‘You don’t think so?’ 

‘Nuh uh,’ he responds. 

Bazemore then pipes up, adding that his guests should ‘do the research on Stanley Kubrick’. 

One of the long-running conspiracy theories about the moon landing claims that Kubrick was hired by NASA to stage the Apollo 11 and 12 missions. 

Curry's controversial claim comes just months after Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving apologized for saying he believed the earth was flat

Kubrick had just directed the legendary film 2001: A Space Odyssey, which many have used to back up the theory – despite there being zero evidence to support it. 

The conversation quickly moved on, but Curry’s claims are sure to generate headlines – and cause many future headaches for teachers.  

Irving found himself apologizing months after he claimed that the Earth is flat. 

The Boston Celtics star specifically said sorry to ‘all the science teachers’ who came up to him and complained ‘I’ve got to reteach my whole curriculum’.  

Irving said he’s since learned certain thoughts are best kept in ‘intimate conversations’ and said he had just been ‘huge into conspiracies’ at the time.  

Curry may want to steer clear of Buzz Aldrin (pictured), who once punched a man that claimed he never actually walked on the moon with Neil Armstrong

‘Everybody’s been there. Everybody’s been there like, “Whoa! What’s going on with our world?!'” he said. 

Curry may also want to steer clear of Buzz Aldrin, who became one of the first two humans to walk on the moon along with Neil Armstrong. 

Aldrin punched conspiracy theorist Bart Sibrel – who has long claimed that the moon landing was faked by the CIA – in 2002. 

Sibrel went right up to Aldrin and said ‘You’re the one who said you walked on the moon when you didn’t’. 

He then called him a ‘coward’ and a ‘thief’ before the legendary astronaut clocked him right in the face.   

Curry, you’ve been warned.
