Shaquille O'Neal says he thinks the world is flat

He joins Irving, others who claim Earth is flat

Hall of Famer Shaquille O'Neal joins a number of fellow NBA players and personalities who believe the world is flat.

According to a report by NBC Chicago, O’Neal joins Cleveland Cavalier Kyrie Irving, Golden State Warrior Draymond Green and Denver Nugget Wilson Chandler who all have said they believe the Earth is flat instead of a floating round ball. However, Irving later said his statement was made to mess with reporters. 

The NBA analyst said after driving cross-country so many times in his career, “it’s flat to me.”

While some players have said they think the world is flat, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver told the media he does in fact believe the Earth is round.
