I saw this, laughed a little, and moved on.

I do have one question though...

If the Earth is flat, what happens when you reach the edge?  Can you fall off or does it just keep going and going forever?  If it does keep going how could you conclude that it is flat?

Thankfully these questions don't need to be answered, but I would love it if someone asked him similar follow up questions.  The response could be gold!

Given the ability of our ruling party to understand science, this is not surprising.  It's the age of making up your own reality.

In addition to the pure ignorance being displayed here, consider the thousands of kids who look up to people like Irving that hear him sharing this nonsense. It perpetuates the erroneous opinion and contradicts critical thinking, which is all part of the dumbing down that this country is experiencing. It's appalling.

the only thing appalling here is that most of you need to ridicule others beliefs to validate your own "intelligence." Another sad showing of programmed minds here on CB.

But I wil say - the whole flat earth theory is puzzling. I just don't know who would benefit from lying about the earth being round. But if that is Kyries truth I respect that, and him as well for voicing it when he probably knows [dang] well this is the type of reaction he would receive.
Two choices - the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The pain of regret hurts a whole lot more.

One of the best attributes of science is that it's true whether you believe in it or not.

More proof that one doesn't have to have brain in order to be a star NBA player.

I think he's kidding and having fun at everyone's expense.

That's a dangerous perspective. Mainstream science is all about defending the belief system that this world and everything in it was created by accident, and that what humans can see as visual light is all there is.

And how could people have flown and sailed around the earth if it were flat?

This is dead opposite of what "mainstream" science actually supports. This kind of image usually starts popping up in textbooks around 4th grade or so:

The damage done to Kyrie happened LONG before our ruling party took office. Probably went back to Clinton (days) who "did not have sex with that woman".

Or even president of the United States for that matter....

You can just ask if he believes it is the same star that rises and sets each morning and evening.

When hearing this a few days ago I thought it was a gag, and payed no attention to it.

I guess just because a guy can dribble, and shoot a basketball better than most in the world, doesn't make him a bright and intelligent person.

Now you know why teams that have several "star" players struggle to win consistently. Put 3 Kyrie's on a basketball club and they'll struggle to even find the exits. No wonder why Lebron wants additional help.
