Shaquille O'Neal believes the Earth is flat, joining other NBA basketball stars
Shaquille O'Neal, a man tall enough to see the curvature of the earth, believes there is no such thing.
The 2.16m tall Hall of Fame former basketballer believes the earth is flat, joining a number of current NBA players who believe the globe isn't a globe at all.
In February, Cleveland Cavaliers star point guard Kyrie Irving revealed that he thinks the Earth is flat, rather than a sphere.
Since then, fellow players Wilson Chandler, of the Denver Nuggets, and Golden State Warriors star Draymond Green, joined Irving in endorsing the flat-Earth theory.
The storyline even got to the point where NBA commissioner Adam Silver let the world know that the Earth is, in fact, a sphere, during his NBA all-star weekend speech.
Well, the man known as Shaq has joined the chorus coming from some players on The Big Podcast with Shaq.
"It's true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat," O'Neal said in a discussion with fellow hosts on the podcast.
"Listen, there are three ways to manipulate the mind - what you read, what you see and what you hear.
"So, listen, I drive from coast to coast, and this s... is flat to me. I'm just saying. I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it's flat to me.
"I do not go up and down at 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity."
O'Neal went on to say, "you mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It's not. The world is flat."
Follow up questions didn't reveal if O'Neal believes in chemtrails, or that the moon landing was faked.
