Nets' Spencer Dinwiddie channeled Steph Curry during career night

"Be Like Mike?"

Nah. Spencer Dinwiddie wants to "Be Like Steph."

The Nets guard went off for a career-high 39 points in Brooklyn's 127-124 win over the 76ers in Philadelphia on Wednesday night. Dinwiddle hits four 3-points, and after the game, he was asked about his shooting from deep.

"If I had two 3s in a row I feel like Steph [Curry]," Dinwiddie said according to Bleacher Report's Yaron Weitzman. "I had a couple 3s, boy I tell you I feel like I was 6-foot-3 and light skin. I wasn‚Äôt about to stop shooting after that."

Previous generations used to compare themselves to Michael Jordan. But today's players want to be like Steph Curry. That's pretty cool.

A prop was released to determine next NBA player to deny moon landing

The world now knows Steph Curry doesn't believe man has landed on the moon

All right ... 

Of course, since making these claims, the Warriors star point guard took a few steps back and said he was "obviously" joking when he made said remarks (whether you believe him or not is up to you). But now we have a fun game to play since this went down.

Well, not a game, but some odds.

The wonderful people at bookmaker.eu just released a prop on who will be the next NBA player to deny the moon landing. 

The front-runner at the moment is Nick Young at +350.

Here are the rest of the players who could be in denial of the moon landing:

JR Smith +550
Michael Beasley +650
John Wall +650
Draymond Green +700
DeMarcus Cousins +800
Dennis Rodman +800
Kyrie Irving +1000
Charles Barkley/Shaq/Ernie Johnson +15000

So, the next time Barkley or Shaq are being interviewed, ask if they believe man has walked on the moon. The worst-case scenario is they would get an invite from NASA for a tour.

Steph Curry got himself into some trouble this week.

On Monday, he was a guest on the podcast "Winging It" with Vince Carter, Kent Bazemore and Annie Finberg (the podcast was recorded last week when the Warriors were in Atlanta), and made some controversial remarks.

After Andre Iguodala referenced a meme that asked how do we know what kind of sounds dinosaurs made, Curry asked, "We ever been to the moon?"

When two people (it sounded like Iguodala and Kent Bazemore) responded with, "Nope," Curry said, "They're gonna come get us, (but) I don't think so either ... sorry, I don't want to start a conspiracy."

Finberg then asked, "You don't think so?" and Curry responded with "Unh-uh," as in "No." 

On Tuesday, this happened on Twitter:

Today, Curry told Nick Friedell of ESPN that he will 'one thousand percent' accept the invite from NASA.

"Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast," Curry said. "I was silently protesting how stupid it was that people actually took that quote and made it law as, 'Oh my God, he's a fake-moon-landing truther,' whatever you want to call it, yada, yada, yada. So I was silently protesting that part about it, how the story took a life of its own.  

"But in terms of the reaction that I've gotten, I am definitely going to take [NASA] up on their offer. I am going to educate myself firsthand on everything that NASA has done and shine a light on their tremendous work over the years. And hopefully people understand that education is power, informing yourself is power.

"For kids out there that hang on every word that we say, which is important, understand that you should not believe something just because somebody says it. You should do your homework and understand what you actually believe.

"But I'm going to go to NASA and I'm going to enjoy the experience wholeheartedly."

Without diving too deep into this -- it's hard to believe that Curry was joking. Let's leave it at that...
