Kyrie Irving May Already Be Turning His Teammates Into Flat-Earth Truthers (VIDEO)
Last season, Kyrie Irving had social media buzzing after he revealed himself to be a flat-earth truther during Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson’s ‘Road Tripping with R.J. and Channing’ podcast.
“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.”
Everybody from all walks of life weighed in on the debate, but it never changed Kyrie’s mind one bit. Now, it appears as though he may have already convinced one of his new Celtics teammates to adopt his theory.
New Boston Celtics teammate Jaylen Brown is mighty eager to ask Kyrie about his flat-earth theory, but judging from his recent comments to reporters, he may already be accepting the idea of a flat earth.
“I’m not yet ready to make my comment or statement on that. But as my eyes have told me, the world may appear to be flat. Kyrie may very well have a point. So, we’ll see.”
