Green is here for the flat earth truther movement.
Kyrie Irving stole Friday when he went on Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson's podcast and casually revealed that he believes the earth is flat. Though he has since caught plenty of flak for his controversial position on the shape of our planet, it appears that he has at least one ally in the NBA: his 2016 Olympic teammate and fellow 2017 All-Star Draymond Green.
While answering questions from reporters Saturday afternoon at All-Star Weekend, Green defended Irving's belief.
"I don't know. I haven't done enough research. It may be flat," Green said.
Green doubled down in the issue when one reporter asserted that the notion that the earth is flat is "crazy":
"I wouldn't necessarily say crazy though, it's just his opinion," Green responded. "It's hard to call someone's opinion crazy, that's what he thinks. Who's to say that picture is telling the truth? I can make a round picture with my iPhone today, on the panoramic camera, and make it look round. So, I don't know. I'm not saying I think it's flat or round, I don't know, but it could be."

According to Green's Twitter history, he is a long-time flat earth truther movement cardholder:
