CONSPIRACY THEORY. In one interview, Steph Curry doubts that a man landed on the moon in 1969. 

Golden State Warriors ace Stephen Curry is no stranger to the occasional moon shot.

But the NBA star's suggestion that the lunar landings may have been an elaborate hoax has left NASA puzzled.

Curry raised eyebrows on Monday, December 10 when he became the latest basketball player to advance a conspiracy theory, echoing Kyrie Irving's assertion in 2017 that the Earth was flat.

Speaking on "The Winging It" podcast, Curry said he had doubts about whether NASA had actually put a man on the Moon in 1969.

"We ever been to the moon?" Curry asked on the podcast, before several fellow guests replied: "Nope."

"They're going to come get us," Curry added after advancing the theory.

"Sorry, I don't want to start conspiracies," he added.

Curry's remarks drew a bemused response from a NASA spokesman, who invited the two-time NBA MVP to a tour of the agency's facilities.

"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 spokesman Allard Beutel told The New York Times.

"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."

Retired US astronaut Scott Kelly, a veteran of four space flights and former commander of the International Space Station, meanwhile weighed in on Twitter.

"Steph, so much respect for you, but re the moon landing thing, let's talk," Kelly wrote. "DM me."


Stephen Curry Of The Golden State Warriors Hits 13 3-Pointer In A Game To Break NBA Record (Video)

Golden State Warriors Star Stephen Curry Breaks Single Season Record For 3-Pointers With 288. Ties Mark For Game With 12 In Win Against Oklahoma City {VIDEO}

Stephen Curry let it fly from the top of the arc, backpedaled as his record-breaking 3-ball dropped and then wildly began bobbing his head and shuffling his feet with the swagger of a two-time reigning MVP.

Add another remarkable achievement to a long list of them for Curry: most 3-pointers in one game.

The star guard sank 13 to set an NBA mark — one game after missing all his 3-point tries for the first time in two years — and the Golden State Warriors beat the winless New Orleans Pelicans 116-106 on Monday.

"This was a special night," Curry said.

He finished with 46 points, three days after his league-record streak of 157 games with at least one 3 was snapped when he went 0 for 10 on 3-point tries in a 117-97 road loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

"I was hard on myself in practice the last two days. I had pretty good shooting sessions," he said. "I don't overreact to games like that whether I go 0 for 10 or 2 for 12 or whatever it is. My process is the same, but I had another level of focus the last two days trying to get my rhythm back and see the ball go in."

Curry shot 13 of 17 from beyond the arc in his seventh career game with double-digit 3s. He broke the mark with 2:23 to go and bobbed his head in delight as the crowd roared.

Curry shared the previous 3-point record of 12 with Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall.

"Nothing you can do about it. He was being Steph," Pelicans star Anthony Davis said.

Grabbing back the spotlight from new Golden State star Kevin Durant, Curry raised his right arm and pumped his chest all night, howling and pointing as one shot fell after another. He went 16 for 26 overall in his first 40-point performance after leading the NBA with 13 last season.

Warriors fans enjoyed every minute of it, chanting "M-V-P! M-V-P!"

"That was quite a show. Not at all surprising the way Steph bounces back from bad nights," Golden State coach Steve Kerr said.

Klay Thompson had 24 points with two 3s as the Splash Brothers looked far more in sync from long range at last. Durant added 22 for the Warriors.

Davis had 33 points and 13 rebounds for New Orleans (0-7), which along with the 76ers (0-6) are the NBA's lone teams still without a victory. Davis gave the Pelicans a 73-72 lead on a turnaround hook shot with 4:14 left in the third quarter.

Davis had 45 points, 17 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in the teams' initial matchup on Oct. 28.

Draymond Green had his second double-double with 12 rebounds and 11 assists for the Warriors, who were back at Oracle Arena after they embarrassed the Oklahoma City Thunder 122-96 there in Durant's first game against his former team last Thursday.

Thompson — 2 for 10 against the Lakers from 3-point range, a combined 0 of 13 vs. Phoenix and Portland and 9 of 46 overall (19.6 percent) this season coming in — missed his first three attempts before hitting from the baseline late in the second quarter as the sellout crowd went crazy.

Curry knocked down his first 3-point attempt at the 7:29 mark of the first quarter. He received a technical with 1:45 left in the third for arguing he was fouled by Davis on a 3-point attempt.


Pelicans: E'Twaun Moore added 15 points. ... The Pelicans signed veteran G Archie Goodwin and waived injured G Lance Stephenson, scheduled to have surgery to repair his torn groin in Philadelphia on Tuesday. ... New Orleans lost for the 15th time in the past 16 games against Golden State.

Warriors: David West appeared in his 900th regular-season game, one of 22 active players to reach the number. ... Curry has made a 3 in 81 straight home games. When he came up empty Friday night in Los Angeles, it was the first time Curry did not hit a 3 since Nov. 11, 2014. ... Rookie Patrick McCaw returned from missing four straight games with a sprained left ankle sustained late in the first meeting vs. New Orleans. C Anderson Varejao was inactive. ... Former Warriors player and coach Al Attles celebrated his 80th birthday, receiving a video tribute and the birthday song with cupcakes after the first quarter.


Durant has scored 20 or more points in 71 straight regular-season games, matching Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the fifth-longest streak in NBA history.


Monday marked 70 years to the day since the Warriors played their first game in franchise history . The Philadelphia Warriors beat the Pittsburgh Ironmen 81-75, watched by a crowd of 4,185.


Pelicans: At Sacramento on Tuesday in their first visit to the Kings' new Golden 1 Center. It's the middle game of a three-game road trip. New Orleans has won six straight in the series and four in a row on the road.

Warriors: Host Dallas on Wednesday looking for their fourth straight victory and 13th of 16 in the series.


Minnesota Timberwolves' Zach LaVine Wins NBA Dunk Contest. Stephen Curry Of Golden State Takes Home 3-Point Trophy (Video/Pics)

Stephen Curry showed once again that he might be the best 3-point shooter in the history of the NBA Saturday, February 27, in a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

When the point guard sank a long range jumper from about 40 feet from the basket with 0.6 seconds left in overtime, he sealed a 121-118 win for the Golden State Warriors.

"What was that, 40 feet?" teammate Draymond Green asked. "That's absurd."

In the process Curry tied the record for the most 3-pointers made in a game with 12. He finished with 46 points.

"Honestly, I don't know exactly where I am, so it's not like I'm calibrating in my head, all right, 38 feet, 37, 36," Curry said after the game via the Associated Press. "Just literally, you've got a sense of — I've shot the shot plenty of times, you're coming across halfcourt and timing up your dribbles, and you want to shoot before the defense goes in. And that was pretty much my only thought."

The 27-year old's shooting process has left fellow players beyond impressed.

Curry also raised the bar for the most shots made from beyond the arc in a season with 288, breaking his own NBA record.

"I never would have thought at this point in the season I would be closing in on 300 and all that kind of stuff," he said. "That doesn't make sense to me. I've always tried to push the envelope and keep getting better, but a lot has to go right to get to this point."

Do you think Curry is the best long range shooter to step onto an NBA court?


Stephen Curry honored a fallen fan the best way he knew how. Zach LaVine made a name for himself in a dunk contest that lacked star punch.

Curry bested Golden State Warriors teammate Klay Thompson and six others to win his first 3-point contest, and LaVine put on a spectacular aerial display to take home the dunk competition during a memorable All-Star Saturday night.

Curry paid homage to one of the three victims of the shooting in North Carolina, writing a message to Deah Shaddy Barakat on his sneakers for the shooting stars competition, then swapping those for a different color pair for the 3-point contest. Barakat was one of three Muslim college students killed Tuesday in Curry's home state.

"It only seemed right to honor him and his family, and hopefully they know that people are thinking about them," Curry said. "They're not alone, and hopefully it can give them some kind of peace and comfort knowing that he was a special guy. And I just did my little part to shed light toward him."

Curry said there were several connections to the family that touched him.

He said Barakat did his wedding photo similar to a magazine cover featuring Curry and his wife, Ayesha. Barakat also wore a No. 30 jersey — Curry's number — in basketball leagues and some of Curry's family members even played pickup games with Barakat in North Carolina.

"They all spoke highly of him," Curry said. "It's a great platform to be on, but it only seemed right."

Barakat's wife, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, and her sister, Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, also were killed in the attack. Craig Stephen Hicks, 46, has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder in their deaths.

Curry, the starting point guard for the Western Conference in Sunday's All-Star game at Madison Square Garden, made sure he'd have the chance to shine a bright light on Barakat and his family.

He scored 27 points in the final round. Curry connected on 13 consecutive shots until missing his final attempt, bringing fans and celebrities roaring to their feet after every swish at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

Thompson, who had an opening-round best of 24, scored only 14 points in the final round. Cleveland's Kyrie Irving finished second with 17 points in the three-man final.

It was a rare year when the 3-point competition had as much — if not more — intrigue heading into it than the dunk contest because of the notable names who were — and weren't — participating in each.

Even still, LaVine left a lasting impression few will forget.

The 19-year-old Timberwolves rookie scored a perfect 100 in the opening round. He highlighted his scintillating start with a through-the-legs, one-handed reverse slam, wearing a white No. 23 Jordan jersey for what he dubbed the "Space Jam" dunk.

On his second dunk, he tossed the ball up, put it behind his back in the air and threw down a powerful one-handed slam for another 50 from the Hall of Fame judges — Julius Erving, Walt Frazier, Nate Archibald, Bernard King and Chris Mullin.

LaVine had a final round score of 94 to overtake Orlando's Victor Oladipo, who struggled to convert his first attempt in the final and finished with a 72 in the championship round. LaVine became the first Timberwolves player to win the dunk contest since Isaiah Rider in 1994.

"I'm still on cloud nine. I feel like I'm dreaming," LaVine said. "Seeing all the dunk contests and people hoisting the trophy, I just saw myself do it and lived it. So it's a dream come true. I'm glad my family is here to witness it and go through it."

Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, aka The Greek Freak, and Brooklyn's Mason Plumlee didn't advance past the opening round.

Even with all the above-the-rim athleticism, the MVP frontrunner put on quite a show from long distance.

Curry, who set the NBA-record with 272 3-pointers in a season two years ago, finally took home the 3-point crown on his fourth try. He earned bragging rights over his fellow "Splash Brothers" star in the process, putting pressure on Thompson to follow his spotlight-stealing final round.

He couldn't.

Nobody could.

Atlanta's Kyle Korver, who is shooting a league-high 52.3 percent from beyond the arc, and defending champion Marco Belinelli of San Antonio never made it past the first round with scores of 18. Portland's Wesley Matthews finished with 22, Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick scored 17 and Houston's James Harden had 15.

Chris Bosh, Dominique Wilkins and Swin Cash won their third straight shooting stars competition earlier. Houston's Patrick Beverley won the skills competition.
