Kyrie Irving, Shaquille O'Neal, and B.O.B. have brought back the long-dormant flat earth theory.
In fact, NBA prospects are now being asked about it at the draft combine.
In the clip below, Lonnie Walker IV one-ups flat earth with an even crazier theory about the planet we reside on.
Catching up on @Mike_Schmitz's interviews with NBA Draft prospects. I truly respect Lonnie Walker IV's honest response to this question. 😂🌎 pic.twitter.com/9bvOgA2sCp— Kevin O'Connor (@KevinOConnorNBA) May 21, 2018
"When you talk about facts and things of that nature, it's amazing to me that we discovered so much about this world yet we don't know anything this world," Walker said during an ESPN interview. "The earth is not flat, but the Earth, in my conspiracy, the Earth is definitely an illusion."
Walker, who's a freshman from Miami, is a pretty good player and is expected to be drafted in the first round.
Come to think of it, maybe "the earth is an illusion theory" isn't so crazy compared to flat earth. It is a lot more difficult to prove otherwise.
