For those that don't already somehow already know, Kyrie Irving has caused quite a stir in regards to his flat-earth theory comments.
While not necessarily outright saying the earth is 100% flat, he's alluded that things may not be how they seem, while encouraging people to think for themselves. After being asked about his thoughts on the flat-earth theory, Kyrie's response indicated that he may not necessarily believe the outlandish theory himself...
So, was this whole "flat-earth" conspiracy just a rouse?
It seems like it. Kyrie wants to spread a message of independent thinking, using the crazy sounding flat-earth theory as a platform to replay that message.
