    Question Kyrie Irving: The Earth is flat

    Atleast... according to Kyrie.


    http://www.si.com/extra-mustard/2017...low_twitter_si

    “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.

    “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.”




    Well. Atleast we know Kyrie's post basketball plans when he retires. He will spend most of his NBA fortune proving his theory that the earth is flat.

    Think of this the next time any 'celebrity' or jock starts talking about politics, religion or anything outside of their own little world.

    It's getting even worse than I thought. In light of everything happening at the moment, I can't find humor in this. This is pretty terrifying actually.

    With everything currently...the way it is, keeping political talk off here altogether is going to be quite a task. Hats off to the mods if you can pull it off. A lot of NBA players and the NBA community are discussing it and it's a big part of the news right now. Hell, the ASG is only in NOLA because of a bit of political strife. Godspeed, bold users.

    This story is blowing up on the internet. I honestly wonder if he's joking or if he has a serious mental problem.

    So does he really not believe that if you start flying in say New York, and go directly West without ever changing directions, that you won't eventually end up back in New York? Lol

    Seriously. I thought he was all worldly having been to the Olympics. Or maybe that explains it since it was in Rio de Janeiro. He's never flown very far east or west. That has got to be it! He's never phoned home late at night where the sun was shining. LOL.

    Whose to say what is politics? Who's to say that this "main page" you cite truly exists. As far as I'm concerned, I've only really observed a bunch of "pixels" created by "bytes" and "bits."

    And I'm not sure I've ever actually seen any "gentlemen" on this page either, even figuratively or metophorically. Are you part of the "They" ?

    A basketball is not round. I know, I know, it looks round but it isn't. As you know, it is actually moving and just looks round. Except when it's in Rodney Stuckey's hands. You can only see its true form when he has it. It become a diamond under his tight grip.

    What's really sad is that thousands of kids look up to him. It's no wonder people keep getting dumber.

    I know! Flat earth and then he talks of planets as if they're myths, or legends like Cyclops and The Hydra. Unreal.

    He just said do your own research and Kyrie is also skeptical of dinosaurs. This just makes me really sad, I have no idea how you can believe this in the 21st century. He is rich enough to go on virgin galatic and see it himself.

    No, you will hit the outer border. haha! This reminds me of an old movie called The 13th Floor where the characters thought they were real until they came to the edge of the world and they were actually in a cyber universe. I need to watch that again. Good movie.
