Shaquille O'Neal agrees with Kyrie Irving, believes the Earth is flat

O'Neal doubled down by claiming satellite images of the planet from space could be'drawn and made

We have a lot of questions for Irving, O'Neal and the rest of the flat-Earthers out there.

And, surprisingly, Shaq is on Team Kyrie, saying he believes the flat-Earth theory as well.

"It's true. The Earth is flat", O'Neal said.

For a man who once told reporters he wanted to be known as "The Big Aristotle", NBA Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal sure has a curious idea about the shape of the Earth. Yeah, it is. Yes, it is.

'In school, first thing they teach us is, "Oh, Columbus discovered America". "I'm just saying", he explained - at which point, Kincade interjected: "That is the dumbest thing you have ever said".

O'Neal actually used the fact that Christopher Columbus did not actually discover America as evidence and even cited some of his nationwide travels in a vehicle. "I drive from coast to coast, and this s*** is flat to me". I'm just saying. I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it's flat to me. Have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? So, what does that tell you? China is under us? "The world is flat".

Irving made first made his comments about the Earth being flat on a podcast with teammates Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye.

Monday weather: Spring gets off to a rainy start
It will also be windy with gusts of around 30 miles per hour inland and 40 miles per hour at the south coast. A slight chance of showers and thunderstorms between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m., then a chance of showers after 2 a.m.

O'Neal's lukewarm take came days after Irving tried to revive the debate. I know you didn't go to class to get that, but kids look up to you or something. I'm telling you, it's right in front of our faces.

"This is not even a conspiracy theory", Kryie said.

According to Green, NASA was doctoring space photos that showed the Earth as a sphere.

Earth is rounder than the number two. What's fantastic about this is Kyrie and other flat-eathers often point to how you can't see the curvature of the Earth while flying on an airplane as proof, but Shaq took that a step further somehow and went with cars.

"I believe the world is round", he said, and suggested that Irving and his flat-Earth colleagues had used the matter to make a commentary about the problem of fake news in the country, according to the Guardian.

Shaq, buddy, you have an honorary doctorate degree in education focusing on organizational learning and leadership.

What about the satellite imagery we have of the Earth?
