Warriors' Stephen Curry 'Moon Landing' shoes auctioned off for $58,000

After Steph Curry said on a podcast he didn't think anyone had been to the moon, he quickly said he was "obviously joking." 

Whether it was a joke or not didn't matter -- the entire story took on a life of its own. But there ended up being some huge beneficiaries.

NASA was more than happy to invite the five-time All-Star to tour the Johnson Space Center during the Warriors' next trip to Houston. And when the Kings trolled Curry during a Warriors-Kings matchup, we knew this topic would be around for a while. 

Curry even had fun with it by creating some shoes inspired by the situation:

After he wore the custom Under Armour Curry 6s against the Rockets on Jan. 3, Steph agreed to sign and auction off the game-used pair. 

The shoes ended up selling for a whopping $58,100 on eBay after 113 bids.

The money will be donated toward STEM education initiatives in the Bay Area through Donors Choose.

Where were you on President's Day this year? If you're Barack Obama, you were in San Francisco seen at Ayesha Curry's restaurant, International Smoke. 

Celebrity chef Michael Mina shared a picture on Instagram of himself with Obama, plus Steph and Ayesha at the restaurant.

The 44th President of the United States wasn't the only celebrity there on Monday night, too. Mina also posted a picture of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen as well.

Obama is in town for a three-day national convention in Oakland, hosted by his foundation, My Brother's Keeper Alliance. Curry will be joining him at a town hall as part of the conference.

The Warriors spent time with Obama in Washington, D.C., before their game against the Wizards in late January, thanks to a players-only meeting set up by Curry.

Steph Curry sneaks in odd phrases at All-Star Weekend for Jimmy Fallon

Steph Curry is a pretty good sport.

Before the Warriors star took off to NBA All-Star Weekend, Late Night host Jimmy Fallon asked Curry to sneak a few phrases into his media interviews throughout the weekend.

Fallon revealed the bit during Monday night's episode of "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon."

Curry snuck in the phrases "energizer bunny," "flippin' pancakes," and "Wham Bam Can of Ham" two times each, and nobody appeared to notice. 

Steph appeared to enjoy his experience with it all.

"Energizer bunny" and "flippin' pancakes" seemed pretty easy for the two-time MVP to mix into his interviews, but "Wham Bam Can of Ham?" What even is that?

Fallon himself had high praise for the three-time champ for agreeing to participate.
