Shaq is team #FlatEarth.
Thanks to Kyrie Irving, one of the biggest questions in NBA circles today is: "Do you think the Earth is round or flat?"
Kyrie Irving announced that he believed the world was flat on a podcast with teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye, which later prompted other NBA players like Wilson Chandler and Draymond Green to join team #FlatEarth as well.
And now Shaq is on it as well.
He talked about the flat world on "The Big Podcast With Shaq,"
“It’s true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. Yes, it is. Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind — what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they teach us is, ‘Oh, Columbus discovered America,’ but when he got there, there were some fair-skinned people with the long hair smoking on the peace pipes. So, what does that tell you? Columbus didn’t discover America. So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this shit is flat to me. I’m just saying. I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it’s flat to me. I do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity, have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The world is flat.”
