Warriors sharpshooter Steph Curry claims man never set foot on the moon

Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry drives past Milwaukee Bucks' Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez during the first half of an NBA basketball game Friday, Dec. 7, 2018, in Milwaukee.

Curry and teammate Andre Iguodala recently made an appearance on The Ringer's "Winging It" podcast, hosted by Atlanta Hawks teammates Vince Carter and Kent Bazemore, and during their discussion - right around the 45-minute mark - Curry floated the question of whether the moon landing was real. Nearly out of the blue, Curry offered up this take.

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

"Curry: 'They're gonna come get us".

I think what we're learning here is that National Basketball Association players are huge fans of conspiracy theories.

"You don't think so?" co-host Annie Finberg replies.

"You gotta do the research on Stanley Kubrick", Bazemore adds, reference a common argument used by moon landing doubters.

There are heaps and heaps of evidence that prove the United States landed on the moon not just in 1969, but five more times after that.

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

Irving apologized for making the comments earlier this year, claiming he has since learned certain thoughts are better kept in "intimate conversations". "What's going on with our world?!'" he said.

One of the more popular conspiracy theories about a faked Apollo 11 moon landing involves Kubrick, the acclaimed filmmaker who directed "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "A Clockwork Orange".

Curry, you've been warned.
