(Newser) – Stephen Curry is one of the NBA's biggest stars—in fact, the Golden State Warriors great just picked up Player of the Week honors for the second time this season, notes NBC Sports. But the most recent headlines about him have nothing to do with basketball and everything to do with conspiracy theories. In a podcast, Curry suggested that NASA faked the moon landings. NASA would love the chance to prove him wrong. The details:

  • Listen: You can hear Curry make the comments in this podcast called "Winging It." They come after the 46-minute mark, when Curry asks, "We ever been to the moon?" A number of voices chime in, saying no, and Curry says, "I don't think so, either," reports the San Francisco Chronicle. He adds, “Sorry, I don't want to start conspiracies," per the New York Times.
  • Kubrick: Host Annie Finberg gives Curry a chance to backtrack. "You don't think so?" she asks. "Nuh uh," he responds. Then fellow NBA player Kent Bazemore adds, "You gotta do the research on Stanley Kubrick." The reference is to the conspiracy theory that the director helped NASA concoct the moon landings.
