Steph, Vince Carter, Iguodala, and Bazemore Don't Believe in the Moon Landings

During a wide-ranging talk among Carter, Bazemore, Curry and Curry’s teammate Andre Iguodala, the topic of the sounds dinosaurs made was being discussed before Curry abruptly shifted gears, asking the others if they believed the United States had put a person on the moon.

“We ever been to the moon?” he asked.

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


In fact, NASA landed men on the moon six times from 1969 to 1972, putting a total of 12 astronauts on the lunar surface. It was the only space agency to pull off a manned mission to the moon, and, after a request from President Trump, NASA is working on plans for another manned mission in the future.

“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.

“There are answers to all the questions raised by the nonbelievers,” the agency says on its website, “but one of the strongest arguments is that all the Apollo missions were independently tracked by England and Russia (our allies and enemies), both of whom sent letters of congratulations after the moon landings. In the midst of a heated space race, the Russians would have called our bluff if the landings had not actually happened.”

Sounds like they could all do with a visit from Buzz Aldrin.

It is called open-mindedness, which is in short supply today. Only a fool would believe everything they're told, especially given the habitual lying scum that are journalists and politicians (cut of the same cloth).

Warriors' Stephen Curry says he was joking about moon landing, will visit NASA

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry said he was joking when he questioned on a podcast whether astronauts ever landed on the moon, and he will happily accept NASA's invitation to tour the lunar lab at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.

"One thousand percent," Curry told ESPN on Wednesday of accepting the invite. "One thousand percent. Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast. [Then] I was silently protesting how stupid it was that people actually took that quote and made it law as, 'Oh my God, he's a fake-moon-landing truther,' whatever you want to call it, yada, yada, yada. So I was silently protesting that part about it, how the story took a life of its own.

"But in terms of the reaction that I've gotten, I am definitely going to take [NASA] up on their 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. And hopefully people understand that education is power, informing yourself is power. 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. You should do your homework and understand what you actually believe.

"But I'm going to go to NASA and I'm going to enjoy the experience wholeheartedly."


Hey, he's getting a cool tour out of it all, at least. So, piggybacking on Blake Griffin's idea, I don't believe the NBA exists (and it's therefore impossible to attend a game), nor do I believe that having $10 million in the bank would be a good feeling. If there are any entities or benefactors out there who would like to prove me wrong, I'm open-minded.

Well, he is playing today like he has no spine, including falling about all over the court as if he was jello.

Surely Vince could simply leap up there and see for himself. He still has the hops.

I still think All-Star Weekend should feature a debate* on science between Kyrie (East) and Steph (West).

*or at least trivia contest
