After doing his own research, Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving claims that there are no real pictures of planet Earth.

Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving recently explained why he believes that the Earth is flat.

During an interview on UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma’s “Holding Court” podcast, Irving said that he’s done his research and claimed that there’s no real picture of Earth, which is why he believes it is flat.

“The whole intent behind it, coach, it wasn’t to bash science,” he said, via Dakota Randall of NESN. “It wasn’t to like have the intent of starting a rage and be seen as this insane individual. When I started seeing comments and things about universal truths that I had known, like I had questions.”

He added, “When I started actually doing research on my own and figuring out that there is no real picture of Earth, not one real picture of Earth — and we haven’t been back to the moon since 1961 or 1969 — it becomes like conspiracy, too.”

So I guess you weren’t really trolling the media with your flat Earth comments then were you Kyrie? I mean you must not be good at doing research because there are pictures of Earth. Kyrie, if there are no pictures of Earth then how do you explain NASA’s DISCOVER spacecraft taking a picture of Earth on October 12?

Maybe the newest Celtics stud should come back down to Earth from whatever planet you are on.

Someone should get physicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson to teach Irving that the Earth is round and that there are pictures of Earth. Otherwise, NASA should send him to the International Space Station so that he could see for himself that the Earth is indeed round.
