Cleveland Cavaliers PG Kyrie Irving is a Flat-Earth Truther & Explains Why
Not sure why this is a constant debate, but it is.
Cleveland Cavaliers teammates Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson have a podcast (Road Tripping with R.J. and Channing) and PG Kryie Irving was a guest on the latest edition.
Frye, for whatever reason, brought up the question whether Aliens exist or not, and Kyrie used that opportunity to ask his teammates, “Do you think the Earth is round?” Frye and Jefferson said yes, but Irving thought otherwise.
“This is not even a conspiracy theory,” Kryie said. “The Earth is flat.”
Pressed to explain himself, Irving spoke of “particular groups” and a mysterious “they” who want to convince us Earth is round.
“It’s right in front of our faces,” he said. “I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us.
The podcast was being recorded on a plane, which Kyrie attempted to use as evidence for his claims.
“What I’ve been taught is that the earth is round,” he continued. “But if you really think about it from a landscape of the way we travel, the way we move and the fact that, can you really think of us rotating around the sun and all planets aligned, rotating in specific dates, being perpendicular with what’s going on with these planets.”
“How are you gonna put ‘planets’ in quotations?” Jefferson interjected.
“Because, everything that they send—or that they want to say they’re sending—doesn’t come back,” Irving explained. “There is no concrete information except for the information that they’re giving us. They’re particularly putting you in the direction of what to believe and what not to believe. The truth is right there, you just got to go searching for it.”
The talk about the flat-earth begins around the 15:20 mark:
