Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving now understands the importance of being an educated role model. The 26-year-old NBA star apologized to science teachers for insisting the Earth is flat.

The Boston Celtics star shocked fans around the world when he insisted the Earth was flat during a podcast in February 2017.

After sparking debate in classrooms all over the country, he told the NY Times in June that he wasn’t sure whether the Earth was flat or round.

“I’m not against anyone that thinks the Earth is round. I’m not against anyone that thinks it’s flat. I just love hearing the debate,” he said at the time.

The ‘Uncle Drew’ star apparently changed his mind after speaking with science teachers who re-educated him.

He apologized to science teachers at the Forbes Under 30 summit in Boston.

“To all the science teachers, everybody coming up to me like, ‘You know I’ve got to reteach my whole curriculum?’ I’m sorry. I apologize, I apologize,” he said, as the audience laughed.

Kyrie’s comments bolstered “Flat-Earth” believers and confused social media users who received good grades in their science classes.

Even NBA Commissioner Adam Silver was shocked by Kyrie’s flat Earth announcement.

“Kyrie and I went to the same college. He may have taken some different courses,” Silver said at the time.

  • the guest

    The Earth is neither flat or round, it is a sphere.

    Mr. Irving is not the only person of any race who believe the Earth is flat.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lookn@kyrie’s bottom lip

  • Trace da Ace

  • Guess Who

    He’s only 26? I would have thought about 36. No shade. Dude looking….”mature”…

  • Guess Who

    Circle/Round = sphere. LOL…but allegedly it’s not a perfect sphere as scientists claim it bulges from the sides because of gravity or some shyt. I think.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Morn-ting!

  • Scromes1212

    Dope he was able to admit he had a thought and he realized after studying the topic that he was wrong. Nothing wrong with that.

  • Coy little wink

    So he hasn’t changed his views…he just apologized for saying it aloud. He’s a moron!

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Those lips…blunt smoker??

  • Alextra Ballard

    Lol….it’s so noticeable

  • Kayke

  • Alextra Ballard

    Ummhmmm!!!!!!

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Nope…backwoods!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Yop

  • datjerk

    He looks like my moms ex bf from when I was a kid. Only difference is my moms bf had a jheri curl.

  • Merkaba morris

    He’s is a sellout white woman loving self hating ass nigga , the NBA players are ridiculous . They have no knowledge of self .

  • Alextra Ballard

    He can be…parched lips and all

  • Guess Who

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    “Kyrie and I went to the same college. He may have taken some different courses,” Silver said at the time.

  • SpiceGirl

    Nothing wrong for saying how you feel and then stand corrected. It takes a lot to say your wrong. A LOT folks won’t do that.

  • RespectSelf

    I feel like you have to have a bit of a conspiracy theorist to believe that the earth is flat. Because believing that would mean that you think that all the images of a round earth are fake…. so then would science teachers really be able to make you change your mind??? after all they are only telling you what we already been told.

  • abby500

    And how do we know it’s not? How do we know those earth aerial shots are real??

  • ohdearme

    Kyrie has calmed down a lot, you really don’t hear much about him since he became a full fledged member of his mom’s Native American tribe. The ceremony looked incredible.

  • Alextra Ballard

    He can go for a man in his early thirties

  • ALLMINE?

    Self hate means u hate urself… maybe he hates black women but not himself ?

  • Bossy704

    Earth and the other planets are just stars. Big ones. Uneven splatters in the universe. NASA make them perfect circles for visual recognition. The earth is not perfectly flat or round. The real pictures are fuzz and readily available.

  • ALLMINE?

    That shit is disgusting

  • We Can Do This

    Looking like his character Uncle Drew without the gray hair!

  • ALLMINE?

    A lot of black men age quickly then it slows down..I looked like I was 23 when I was a senior in highschool???.. I’m tall and was drug and alcohol free

  • ALLMINE?

    I’m sick of everybody apologizing for every fuckin thing.. shit. Gtfoh

  • SpiceGirl

    I think I missed that…..

  • ALLMINE?

    That’s just a bad pic I think.. he doesn’t look 36

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Some “self hating” brothas dont like being black, and dont want to have kids that look like them. That’s why they want white/latina/biriacial/exotic women so they’ll end up having mixed kids. That’s not about them hating black women. That’s about them hating their own blackness.

  • ohdearme

    It was really nice, he and his sister looked fully engaged.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Don’t apologize for being a BIG DUMMY???

  • SmartAtheist

    His brain is flat.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Is this tool related to Sherri Sheppard?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You just had to throw him all the way under the bus…then back over him for good measure.

    Ha,ha,ha!!!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Kyrie Irving(whom I happen to run into waiting to get in to a screening) adores his fans.

  • jazmine

    Would u believe he went to one of the most expensive schools in his area in NJ? smh

  • Miss Thang

    What a dumbass buffoon lookin-ass… Damn! and this nigra is rich too!!! Pisses me the fuck off!

  • Miss Thang

    he needed to apologize for that dumbasss shit he said. We have enough misinformation going to our youths.

  • Guess Who

    LOL..yes he does. Maybe it’s the beard. Wait, I just googled it. You’re right. Not 36…but 30.

  • Django the God

    They made him say that.

  • Guess Who

    …..not to me. In fact, many black men look younger than most men of other races . Now some do be looking like the crypt keeper but for the most part, black dudes got it going on with the fountain of youth, lol.

    BTW, Kyrie looking like he was a senior in High School when House Party came out at the movies. Or he was a background singer for Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. Ok, I’m trolling now but he look old asf to me.

  • Guess Who

    LMAO

  • Waya Hedia

    I think he meant “the earth is fat”

  • Guess Who

    How about mid 30s?

  • Waya Hedia

    Any kid who believed this has more problems than Kyrie. First of all, how do you go even a year in this world without seeing any images of Earth?

  • Django the God

    That’s why they call him “Uncle”.

  • Blue

    I’m here for the comments.

  • Blue

    and he probably didn’t think the earth was flat.

  • Guess Who

    LMAO

  • ALLMINE?

    Lol. They mature quicker..I didn’t say look old. They come into adulthood faster. Fast matures faster

  • ALLMINE?

    Ur talking about kids tho.

  • Miss Thang

    LOL help them, Lord

  • Bashi22

    He’s 26 wow

  • FukkFolks2018

    I believe it. His dad played for a gazillion years in Aus. and he is a basketball legacy kid (Kyrie is).

  • Faithz

    That is so nice of him!!

  • Faithz

    Off Topic…Now if we could get a clear Understanding on and about Judge Kavanaugh being a perfect Student, and choir boy in school…

    Lots of people believe the Earth is flat.
    *kayne shrug*

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    A LOT folks won’t do that.
    FACE ALL IN ‘DEY FACE & THEY STILL WILL NOT BE WRONG.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I understand what you are saying. Completely. No game playing. No semantics. YOU ARE CLEAR.

  • LYRICS

    He’s not dumb, A LOT of ppl believe that! I just hate that in 2018 is u have an “unpopular opinion”, u will get dragged! God will show me around when we meet, so IDGAFF who thinks what!!

  • Brown & Proud

    Exactly.. Nasa even says they are not real pics.. If they lie to us about history in school what makes people think nasa isn’t a huge joke..

  • Brown & Proud

    Idk what shape the earth is but I do believe the holy bible is the truth and it speaks of a stationary earth enclosed by the firmament. So I believe that over any science book or anything nasa n em claims to be truth.

  • Kayke

    Lol

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    CANT HAVE AN INNOCENT OPINION THESE DAYS ESPECIALLY ON SOCIAL MEDIA!!

  • Miss Thang

    It’s not a damn opinion. It’s pure ignorance and foolishness.

  • Miss Thang

    your dumbass wouldn’t be able to survive on a “stationary earth” because there would be no atmosphere. God created Science. Read the books that were supposed to be in the Bible before sexist, racist, religious men took hold of it and decided which books to include and exclude.

  • Miss Thang

    and they are all ignoramuses.

  • Miss Thang

    that’s not the only thing that proves the Earth is round, fool! Go back to school!! Africans knew the Earth was round thousands of years ago. The fact that you think we needed some photos to prove the shit is downright scary. The education system has failed you.

  • imright

    uncle drew was cringe af…couple funny parts,but over all?

  • VernadineTheQueen?

    STFU!! I DONT CARE WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY!! ???

  • Alicia.Ashe

    He’s dumb nothing to see here

  • Miss Thang

    lol

  • Miss Thang

    lol

  • teather

    What happened to him?? He looks OLD! 26?

  • jason rite

    THE MOST HIGH YAH created the earth round so it can move easily around the sun and rotate smoothly on it’s axle without hardly any resistance.A FLAT earth moving through space would face too much resistance.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Depends on how you view the world.

  • Patricia

    i dont believe squat the government says. i know for a fact they never went to a moon in that cardboard and tinfoil piece of crap. they lie in the history books. they lie in the science books. they dont know anything about anything. they make up theories and 77366272833949 numbers, dates, years for everything and call it “fact” and “science” to confound you and make you feel small and inferior to all their all-knowing research. hell, nasa even admitted they didnt have any full photos of earth. its all cgi. fake fake fake. i said it and wont take it back.

  • Patricia

    those books all conflict whats established so they are to be regarded as falsehood. logically, if we wanted to pretend the bible was falsified and in error, the closer you stay to the source of something, the closer you are to the truth/purest form. you dont move away and branch off in a million other directions. common sense.

  • Logan Roberts

    What’s on his lips pot ash? He looks 46 years old.

  • Miss Thang

    The truth would tell you that gravity is a function of the Earth being a sphere on an axis, in rotation around the sun, fool.

  • Miss Thang

    no. Facts are facts.

  • Katherine

    Although at least one Biblical author apparently was unaware of that and thought that the Earth had “four corners” as in being flat and square shaped. Many people who believe in the flat Earth theory can’t accept the fact that there are mistakes in the Bible.

  • Brown & Proud

    First off I have read Jasher, Enoch, Jubilees, and Macabees. I find it funny that people resort to name calling when someone has a difference of opinion. Whatever makes you feel better about yourself hun ?. Sounds like you need to take your own advise and re read those books yourself miss thang. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7d43077a4977bc181726bcf48516eb60375f32a492b77485ec7274b36402374c.gif

  • Brown & Proud

    Fa real.. Recently nasa just said they can’t get past the van Allen belt of radiation yet they can get to the moon way back then in a tin can? Its crazy that people are told what to think and believe and they eat it up as facts without thinking for themselves. Fool me once shame on you, ain’t no fooling me twice, lol.
    Nasa means to deceive in Hebrew. . then on top of that their logo is a serpent tongue. I guess if you stand for nothing youll fall for anything. I think Bizzle said it best, “study a lie and they make new lies up, study the truth and you’ll know when a lie comes.”

  • Miss Thang

    There’s no opinion when it comes to whether the earth is flat or round. It is a matter of fact.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    LoL! So true. Just about every time they open their mouths a Lie is coming out.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    “”study a lie and they make new lies up, study the truth and you’ll know when a lie comes.”
    That’s good stuff!!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Did U know that when I gain 5lbs. someone in China is losing 5 lbs.?

    Jesus H. Christmas. You dont even need aerial photos. You can literally SEE the curve of the earth when you fly.

    And before some dumbass says that’s just hills, you can see the curve when you fly over the ocean as you look at the horizon.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    We should cut the NASA budget in 1/2 and put it into Mental health.

  • Judge Mental Will

    26?????? He look good but damm he look 46….. Sexy tho… If he tell me the world flat I’ll believe him. Yep

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    its all dem beckys

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    hes ambitious hell get better….hopefully lol

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    look at how becky done sucked the soul out this dead eyed once handsome man

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    becky(s)(s)(s)(s)(s)(s)(s)(S)

  • Brown & Proud

    According to who tho? Nasa has said its round, then its pear shaped, yet every pic (which arent even real pics) nasa releases it a perfect circle. Anyway like I said idk the true shape and honestly neither do you. You are believing a group of masons that have tons of monetary funding behind them to tell you what this world is that you live on. Funny thing is if you were to research who funded nasa and the affiliates, you would find the true racists. (Jack Parsons, von braun, Ron Hubbard, Crowley, Nazi scientists etc.) I dont like to blindly follow what “they” tell me is reality, if “they”, can change real history and teach evolution in school to discredit God then they will def lie about other things. I refuse to be deceived.

  • Brown & Proud

    Bizzle is full of great quotes check him out if you like hip hop. All of GOM is amazing. ?

  • Brown & Proud

    Seriously! The other half could completely end world poverty they waste so much money.

  • Brown & Proud

    Every pic released by nasa is cgi and its even on their website. I’m still waiting for nasa to release a pic of earth surrounded by satellites from space. Ive yet to see 1 single pic showing all the satellites.. Things that make you go hmm.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Rich people don’t really want to end world hunger and poverty. They want a way to stay on top. Hunger, disease & illness helps them to do that.

  • JustB

    Ok so he straight decided to be Uncle Drew everyday
