Richard Jefferson hilariously shows his support for Kyrie Irving's flat Earth idea

February 23, 2017

The Cleveland Cavaliers apparently have no plans to let this whole "Flat Earth" thing die the quiet death it deserves.

This past weekend at the NBA's All-Star festivities, Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving sent the basketball world into a tizzy with his claim that the Earth is flat, not a sphere, only to later indicate he was (probably) just trolling to get a reaction out of the media.

And that should have been the end of the story, if not for Richard Jefferson wearing a "Flat World Champions" T-shirt on Wednesday, as one does:


It appears as if the shirts are for sale, in case you want to fund the continued scientific illiteracy of our youth:

Now, we sit back and wait for Irving's response to NASA's big news about the discovery of a handful of Earth-sized planets orbiting a (relatively) nearby star.
