Kyrie Irving made headlines last year when he claimed that he believed the Earth was flat, leaving fans to wonder if he was serious in his beliefs, or simply joking around. In later statements, the distinction remained murky, but one thing remained clear — Irving at least enjoys the idea of conspiracy theories, and is not one to shy away from his thoughts.
Irving was a guest on “The J.J. Redick Podcast” and spoke more on his sometimes conspiratorial beliefs, as well as offering his thoughts on Instagram, the pursuit of knowledge, and that new Taco Bell commercial.
The podcast later evolves into a fantastic conversation on Kyrie’s basketball life, his ridiculous handle, and memories of his brief tenure as a Duke Blue Devil. But for the first 10 minutes, Irving is an unstoppable force of immediately engaging quotes sure to have listeners thinking “What?” or “Huh?” or “I don’t know about that Kyrie…”
