Kyrie Irving sneaker event features Flat-Earth prop/display (vid)
Kyrie Irving is among the conspiracy theorists on the periphery of scientific skeptics who argue that the Earth is not relatively spherical in shape but instead is flat.
The Boston Celtics superstar has consistently touted his Flat-Earth beliefs. And while it’s hard to say for certain whether or not he truly believes in the theory or is simply pulling off an epic troll job for the ages, a display for his sneaker line strangely embraces the Flat-Earth mumbo-jumbo.
An event in Boston Tuesday promoting the Kyrie 4 from Nike featured a display/prop celebrating Irving’s pet theory which “explains” in part how the entire legitimate scientific community has been bamboozled into believing the Earth is not flat.

Now it makes sense. Nope, not at all.
the commercial promoting the Kyrie 4 released by Nike on Christmas even includes a Flat-Earth conspiracy reference.
As noted by the Boston Herald, “[w]hen the designs were released last month, they included a ‘All Seeing Eye’ image with a message to ‘challenge everyone to seek their own answers beyond the ones that are given to us by books, media, internet, etc.’”
Irving previously has hinted he doesn’t truly embrace the Flat Earth theory. However, Irving as recently as November postulated that “not one real picture of Earth” exists. So there’s that as well.
