LeBron James: If Kyrie Decides The Earth is Flat, ‘That’s OK.’ (Video)
On Friday, Cleveland Cavaliers PG Kyrie Irving set social media on fire when he stated that planet Earth is flat, not round.
“This is not even a conspiracy theory,” Kryie said. “The Earth is flat.”
“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.
“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.”
This topic has taken over All-Star Weekend in New Orleans and eventually reporters got around to asking Kyrie’s teammate, LeBron James, about it.
James seemed okay with Irving’s theory.

During one of the media sessions, he called over to Kyrie and asked him again. Irving confirmed one more time for the world that he was serious.
