Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry shot for the moon and came up woefully short in the latest attempt for an NBA player to echo a decades-old conspiracy theory.
On Monday, Curry appeared on the podcast “Winging It,” and claimed that the moon landing of 1969 was faked. Now, NASA is offering to show the three-time NBA champion evidence to the contrary. (RELATED: Steph Curry Involved In Multiple Vehicle Wreck On Black Friday)
In a statement to The New York Times on Monday, NASA offered to show Curry the rocks from the moon landing to assuage his doubt.
“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 store there, and the Apollo mission control,” a NASA spokesman reportedly said. “During his visit, he can see firsthand what we did 50 years ago.”
Now that NASA has “clapped back,” will Curry double down on his conspiracy theory? Or, will he relent?
