Kyrie Irving is Team B.O.B. when it comes to the shape of the earth.
He says it's flat, which would be a shock to your favorite science teacher or Christopher Columbus.
The Celtics' star just did an episode of J.J Redick's Ringer podcast and during the chat he admitted to his Atlantic Division rival that he got his wild theory from Instagram.
BREAKING: Kyrie Irving, on JJ Redick’s podcast, reveals that his flat-Earth theory came from his dutiful research on … Instagram.https://t.co/YeeSygcGFr pic.twitter.com/4r9qK8lmnD— Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) January 12, 2018
This could explain why flat-earthism has had such a renaissance over the last several years: IG has only existed since 2010.
Irving followed that up with conspiracy theory talk about chemtrails, 911 and the rest. Redick even got in there and expressed his own doubt about dinosaurs.
Now JJ Redick is on an “I'M NOT ENTIRELY CONVINCED THAT DINOSAURS EXISTED” jag, and I’m fully down this rabbit hole, guys.— Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) January 12, 2018
And, of course, there was talk of Taco Bell and the Illuminati
This “Have you seen the new Taco Bell commercial?” question, followed by some solid Illuminati talk pulled me back in, though pic.twitter.com/36LwDLAZnQ— Ben Rohrbach (@brohrbach) January 12, 2018
They start getting into it around 1:40.
