"We ever been to the moon?" Curry asked.
The other players answered "no."
"They're going to come get us," Curry said. "Sorry, I don't want to start conspiracies."
Co-host Annie Finberg asked for some clarification on the statement. Curry confirmed that he did not believe the moon landing occurred.
NASA is planning another moon landing in the future, according to its Twitter feed. NASA put 12 astronauts on the moon from 1969 to 1972. Spokesperson Allard Beutel clapped back at Curry in a statement from NASA.
"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," Beutel said. "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."
"The president directed the NASA Administrator 'to lead an innovative and sustainable program of exploration with commercial and international partners to enable human expansion across the solar system and to bring back to Earth new knowledge and opportunities," NASA said in a news release.
"Beginning with missions beyond low-Earth orbit, the United States will lead the return of humans to the Moon for long-term exploration and utilization, followed by human missions to Mars and other destinations.'"
NASA is building a plan for Americans to orbit the moon starting in 2023 and land astronauts on the surface no later than the late 2020s, according to the release.
