NBA Star Kyrie Irving Thinks the Earth is Flat (Video)

Kyrie Irving, who is playing in the NBA All-Star Game this weekend, is making headlines after he revealed his belief that the Earth is flat.

“This is not even a conspiracy theory,” Irving said while appearing on the “Road Trippin’ with RJ & Channing” podcast. “The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. … It’s right in front of our faces. I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us.”

Kyrie doubled down on his belief while talking to reporters.

“The fact that that could be news all over the world just shows you how it is,” Kyrie said. “The fact that it’s a social phenomenon — ‘Kyrie thinks the world is flat’ — is hilarious to me. … That it could actually be news.”

“I think people should do their own research, man,” Irving told ESPN. “Hopefully they’ll either back my belief or they’ll throw it in the water. But I think it’s interesting for people to find out on their own… I’ve seen a lot of things that my educational system has said that was real that turned out to be completely fake. I don’t mind going against the grain in terms of my thoughts.”

    Time zones is something you can’t disprove. If the earth was flat everyone would share the same time ..fukn moron.

    ok this is dumb as hell, but to his point about doing your own research – if you’re really going to “go against the grain” and challenge what our educational institutions are teaching, why not challenge something subjective, like history/social studies instead of INDISPUTABLE SCIENCE that has not only been unequivocally proven but is simply an OBSERVABLE FACT. smh I like kyrie but he’s a fool for this.
