Kyrie Irving Says The Earth Is Flat: "This Is Not Even A Conspiracy Theory"
Allow him to explain...
Kyrie Irving wants you to know the truth about planet Earth.
The Cleveland Cavaliers guard revealed that the Earth is actually flat while discussing conspiracy theories on teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye's podcast, Road Trippin' With RJ & Channing.
“This is not even a conspiracy theory," Irving said. "The Earth is flat,”
“It’s right in front of our faces,” he continued. “I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us.”
Irving obviously has his reasons for believing that the Earth is flat, and he encourages everyone else to get educated. "I think people should do their own research,” Irving told ESPN Friday (Feb. 17). ”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.”
And in case anyone's wondering what LeBron James thinks, he has no issue with Irving's flat-Earth theory.
“Kyrie is my little brother," James told the press Saturday (Feb. 18). "If he decides the earth is flat, that’s ok."
