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".
