Shaquille O'Neal Thinks the Earth is Flat Too Now

Legendary basketballer Shaquille O'Neal has claimed the Earth is flat

Legendary basketballer Shaquille O'Neal has claimed the Earth is flat

Is it a new trend - like having a dog you can fit in your handbag?

Without missing a beat, Shaq said, "It's true". Have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? O'Neal continued. "So you mean to tell me that China is under us? I'm telling you... they lie to us". "It's not. The world is flat".

There is a fundamental point to all of this, Irving said: "It's OK to have your own thoughts and be able to function and be able to formulate your own thoughts and opinions and still be able to convey them to other people".

"So, listen, I drive from coast-to-coast, and this s*%# is flat to me", he said. I'm just saying there is some stuff about it that makes sense.

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.

Some Kyrie fans responded by saying if Irving says the Earth is flat, then it's flat.

"Because, everything that they send-or that they want to say they're sending-doesn't come back", Irving explained.

I don't need to fully rehash why we know the Earth is round.

'I'm just saying when I drive from Florida to NY; flat.

LeEco is reportedly selling the site for its Silicon Valley HQ
However, LeEco's downfall started when co-founder Jia Yueting admitted that the company was undergoing a major financial turmoil. That's a very capital-intensive business to be in, as analysts point out, and which LeEco continues to discover.

For a man who once told reporters he wanted to be known as "The Big Aristotle", NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal sure has a curious idea about the shape of the Earth.

Many are not religious fundamentalists - or mad - but instead believe that we're victims of a massive conspiracy, orchestrated by NASA, to fool people into believing the Earth is round. I want to believe it's a joke, but it seems a little too real.

But Irving confounded Silver by doubling down on his flat-Earth theory last week. I didn't wanna believe it either, ' he wibbled.

This really happened. I'm not even going to unpack the "360-degree angle" thing, as I'm still stuck on the physics of how that would work.

Yet another National Basketball Association star (well, former star in this case) has come out as a flat earther, and this time it's legendary big man Shaquille O'Neal. They think of everything!

Earth, seen here from the Apollo 17 spacecraft in lunar orbit.

Except it didn't really.

The oceans don't spill off because there's a wall of ice - called Antarctica.

Instead, the Earth is constantly accelerating upwards, so the force of gravity is like being pushed into your seat in a auto, see? It was famously misread by previous Flat Earthers, who weren't the brightest crayons in the pack.
