Meet Kyrie Irving. Irving plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and agreed to do an interview during the All-Star break. During the interview, Irving showcased his genius for all the world to see.
Irving made headlines when he questioned the shape of the Earth on a conspiracy theory-themed episode of the Road Trippin’ podcast with teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye.
‘This is not even a conspiracy theory,’ Irving told Jefferson and Frye while recording the podcast on an airplane. ‘The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat… It’s right in front of our faces. I’m telling you, it’s right in front of our faces. They lie to us.’
Told that there is photo evidence that the Earth is in fact round, Green offered this response: ‘Who’s to say that picture is telling the truth?… I’m not saying I think it’s flat. I don’t know. But it could be’.
You know, if we harnessed Irving’s brain power, we could probably toast some bread. Lightly.
