[gbvzwesa] Steph Curry on other hoaxes

Steph Curry believes the moon landing was a hoax: whatever.

Far more interesting would be if Curry weighed in on whether either of the following are hoaxes:

Wilt Chamberlain scoring 100 points in a game.

Baron Davis making an 89 foot shot.  (Was the video faked on a Hollywood sound stage?)

Curry is extremely qualified at evaluating those incidents.  We imagine Curry commenting on exactly what kind of offensive schemes could work to have one player score 100, or evaluating all the players on the court during the Davis play, commenting whether that was a realistic way to play offense and defense in 0.7-second time remaining situations.  Hypothetically, if he were to say "that's impossible" (or so difficult that he believes it didn't happen), then that would be statement to pay attention to.

Curry on rocket science, not so much.

I suppose the larger issue is about "role models".
