Just read for yourself. Holy cow.

Somehow this gives me more hope that the Celtics can win the Eastern Conference this year.

I don't want to hear anything more about those mythical academic standards that make it harder for schools like Duke and Notre Dame to recruit all of the top players.

I have a cousin who went through a pretty dedicated LSD phase. He sounded a lot like that.

Wow, that is one bizarre read. He really believes it is flat and went off on a serious tangent. I wonder if he has some sort of disorder or he is experimenting with drugs. If we meet the Cavs in game 6 or 7 at the garden, everyone should wear Earth is Flat shirts.

With all of the time NBA athletes spend traveling, it's amazing that Kyrie has never looked out of an airplane window.

My uncle's a flat-earther. There's actually some (confirmation-bias-based) evidence based around the curvature of the landscape in zoomed out pictures. It's pretty compelling if you completely disregard common sense and/or believe that the moon landing was faked. Let's not even get started on the International conspiracy that is the ISS.

being up in an airplane does not really show the earth is round. one could, sillily, just conclude that the flat earth is a really big plate.

but let's face it. for many people evidence means less than pre-existing emotinoal beliefs.

  • Sometimes there's no sane reason for optimism.
Before reading the article, I assumed he meant it as a metaphor for not believing all we are fed by the government and authorities, in general. A 'question everything' sort-of mentality.

But, nope, Kyrie really believes that the earth is flat and he couldn't have been more clear about it. Interesting...very interesting.

Another sad reflection of a Duke education.

Wow.  No wonder Lebron is pulling his hair and begging management for more help out there in Cleveland.

That article , those quote, legendary! This stuff will be up there with Iverson's practice rant for ages.

It reminds me of Carl Everett.
