Shaq is a believer of Kyrie Irving's flat-Earth theory

After Kyrie Irving shocked the very-round world by revealing he thought Earth was flat, Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal has come out in support of this wild conspiracy theory. "The Earth is flat", O'Neal said on his podcast "The Big Podcast with Shaq".

"So listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this s*** is flat to me", O'Neal says.

Maybe they don't really believe the Earth is flat - who knows. Yeah, it is. Yes, it is.

You can listen to the audio here, around the 9:30-minute mark.

"All these things that they keep giving to us, all this information, I'm just saying that these things that used to put me in fear, it makes you not want to question it naturally, because of how much information you actually can figure out and how much information there actually is out there", Irving said. He also cites Columbus not discovering America and that there is no way China "is under us".

Styles said, 'I'm not a 'flat-earther.

'I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it's flat to me. And all that stuff about gravity, have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? China is under us?

"Satellite imagery could be drawn and made up", he said, according to the Daily Mail.

In what was a preposterous statement, Kyrie Irving drew a ton of buzz during the NBA's All-Star weekend in claiming that the Earth was flat.

"So, what does that tell you?" Nobody - to our knowledge - teaches that Columbus "discovered" America as a serious thing.

Now, O'Neal is coming to Irving's defense. I'm telling you, it's right in front of our faces. Such as, where do you think the sun goes at night? Denver Nuggets' Wilson Chandler and Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green all endorsed Irving's flat-Earth theory.

Seeing that the National Basketball Association chapter of the flat-Earth society was gaining in numbers and influence, National Basketball Association commissioner Adam Silver felt compelled to address the issue in his annual state-of-the-league address last month. What's awesome about this is Kyrie and other flat-eathers often point to how you can't see the curvature of the Earth while flying on an airplane as proof, but Shaq took that a step further somehow and went with cars.

Now I feel really stupid about writing articles about how much I like Shaq and how I've been impressed with his humor as well as business acumen.

'I'm just saying when I drive from Florida to NY; flat. In 2005, O'Neal completed online classes for a master's in business administration from the University of Phoenix, and in 2012 received his doctoral degree in education from Barry University in Miami.

Some expressed shock that after having traveled to China in a plane Shaq was unable to guess the reason why passengers arrive in China by traveling west from California as well as by traveling east.

What about the satellite imagery we have of the Earth?

But some insisted that Shaq might have been "trolling" listeners and that he did not mean to be taken seriously.
