Seth Curry thinks brother Steph was joking with moon landing skepticism
Stephen Curry made headlines this week for questioning whether or not the United States ever actually landed astronauts on the moon, but the Golden State Warriors star’s younger brother thinks he may have been trolling.
Following his team’s loss to the Houston Rockets on Tuesday, Portland Trail Blazers guard Seth Curry was asked about his older brother’s claim that NASA’s six moon landings between 1969 and 1972 were all a hoax. He chuckled and said he thinks Steph was probably kidding.

“I really don’t know what his motive behind that was,” Seth Curry said. “I’m sure he was joking or whatever, but it’s gone viral.”
Steph Curry made the remarks on The Ringer’s “Winging It” podcast, and NASA has since invited him to tour one of its lunar labs to make a believer out of him.
“We have hundreds of pounds of moon rocks stored there, and the Apollo mission control,” NASA spokesman Allard Beutel said this week, via Benjamin Hoffman of the New York Times. “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.”
Curry has yet to really follow up on the buzz he created, but he did respond to NASA with a subtle tweet. If he was joking like Seth thinks he was, he is probably enjoying the fallout.
