    Default The NBA's Flat Earth Society

    What's with all these brainless turd NBA players thinking the world is flat? Is this a direct result of the American education system being a few steps above New Guinea?

    Is this ForReal? I thought it was sarcasm and parody of the fake news theme which was being bandied around the time. Didn't bother to follow up on it.

    Well ok I just did....they don't call him Aristotle for nuthin! They do not teach enough science.

    Shaq has 3 frickin' degrees! One of them is a doctorate of education!!!

    Sadly, none in the sciences...

    Draymond Green can name every person who laughed at his flat earth ideas before he was taken seriously by Shaq.

    If the earth were flat then that would mean that all those moon landings were hoaxed. It would mean all those lunar satellite images and videos were hoaxed. It would mean every rover mission to mars was hoaxed. It would mean that the mission to Titan was hoaxed. Those cool photos of Pluto? Also hoaxed. The voyager deep space probe? Hoax. This strangeness off the polar satellite photos of Saturn? Hoaxed even though if it were to be hoaxed they could have faked something a little more straight forward than a giant hexagon. Then there's the sheer number of people required to perpetrate such an elaborate hoax...

    And all this work, for what purpose exactly? Every government on the planet would have to be in cahoots. It makes zero sense how anyone with a functioning brain can believe this.

    I wonder how these guys explain the differences in time zones.

    Conspiracy theories often crop up during times of uncertainty and fear: after terrorist strikes, financial crises, high-profile deaths and natural disasters. Past research suggests that if people feel they don’t have control over a situation, they’ll try to make sense of it and find out what happened. “The sense-making leads them to connect dots that aren’t necessarily connected in reality...

    Hmmm, what part of Shaq's life would he be losing control over? Illegitimate child, perhaps? Irreconcilable differences between LaVar Ball? A 6% Rotten Tomato score for Kazaam?

    Certainly wasn't the mega hit video game Shaq-Fu.

    Kyrie Irving's interviews were incredible. It felt like he'd been educated by a third-rate conspiracy youtube channel.

    American education is a mess.

    No, I don't think that. It was a joke, okay?" O'Neal said. "So know that when Shaquille O'Neal says something, 80 percent of the time I'm being humorous - it is a joke. And 20 percent of the time I'm being serious, but when I'm being serious, you'll know.

    I take it all back, Shaq. You da man.
