Nearly a year ago to the day, rapper B.o.B. caught some flack after stating that the earth is flat, a theory that Cavaliers baller Kyrie Irving subscribes to.
The 24-year-old athlete appeared on his teammates Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson’s podcast, “Road Tripping with R.J. and Channing,” where he made the comment. Frye brought up the question by asking, “Do you think the Earth is round?” and Kyrie responded by saying, “This is not even a conspiracy theory. The Earth is flat.”
He continued, “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.”
Jefferson stopped Kyrie and asked him, “How are you gonna put ‘planets’ in quotations?”
Irving explained, “Because, everything that they send—or that they want to say they’re sending—doesn’t come back. 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.”
