Kenny and Charles' especially have their own head scratching moments when they try to give profound commentary on social and issues or things not basketball, therefore, I am not sure they are the ones you want calling out Shaq.

Maybe the jocks should stick to sports, they really do not need to delve into the cerebral.

how are we in this day and age and people are still this dumb? As much as I love Shaq but why are we still debating things like, whether or not the Earth is round, evolution or the Earth is the center of the galaxy!

That is classic Shaq deadpan trolling. Kudos to him for it.

Kyrie is legitimately insane though, and Wilson Chandler and Draymond Green are not far behind.

Ignorance and distrust for authority and establishments, including academic institutions. That's also what got Trump elected.

Luckily, Bad Religion has a song for this, too...

The flat earth thing is neither social nor profound...I would enjoy seeing them ask him about it, maybe he would admit he was trolling.

Sidebar on Shaq:

I flipped by "Blue Chips" the other night.  I found myself unable to turn away from Nick Nolte and Bobby Knight square off.  Shaq was a young man.

So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this s*** is flat to me. Im just saying. I drive from Florida to California all the time, and its 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? Its not. The world is flat.

Im not sure which detail I enjoyed better Shaq thinking the world is flat because he drives coast to coast or Shaq thinking hed be driving up and down at a 360-degree angle if the Earth was spherical.

He can't pick on Javale Mcgee any more (on orders from his mom), so he's saying stuff like this.

These guys have regular access to pilots. If there were things they weren't sure of on this subject, they could give them good real world answers.  They're trolling.

I love how Duke uses Kyrie Irving on their Nike campaign ads, this coming from one of the best Colleges in the country...out of principle they should have dumped him as soon as he made the uneducated statement.

They wouldn't believe they had even left the earth. They would think it's all a special effects video hoax. You'd have to eject them out of the [dang] shuttle in spacesuits to get them to start believing.
