Kyrie Irving doubles down on flat earth theories in latest interview
Kyrie Irving got a lot of people talking when he first presented his theory about the world being flat. He recently opened up more about his idea of the world with the New York Times, and it appears there could just be a little trolling going on.
Irving was asked why he originally brought this up, and Irving said he was just trying to create a conversation about people and the need to do their own research.
I wanted to open up the conversation, like, “Hey man, do your own research for what you want to believe in.” Our educational system is flawed. History has been changed throughout so much time. I literally got that from what they did to Nikola Tesla of what he was trying to do for just an incredible world. I could just go on and on about this stuff, man.
Irving was trying to create a conversation, but there is still a chance that he believes the earth is flat. When asked about what he believes, he really wouldn’t give an answer but said it’s a good conversation starter.
No, no, no. Can you openly admit that you know the Earth is constitutionally round? Like, you know that for sure? Like, I don’t know. I was never trying to convince anyone that the world is flat. I’m not being an advocate for the world being completely flat. No, I don’t know. I really don’t. It’s fun to think about though. It’s fun to have that conversation.
No matter what the Boston Celtics point guard believes he seems to have completed his goal, getting people to talk about it. It seems Irving can’t go a few weeks without being asked about the earth being flat, and by keeping the conversation in the media, Irving is getting exactly what he wanted out of it.
