Shaq may be big, but he’s no Aristotle.
Following Cavs ensure Kyrie Irving’s bone-headed lead, the NBA fable has posited the unwinnable evidence that the Earth is made not like a basketball, but like a court.
O’Neal, whose many nicknames embody “The Big Aristotle,” may have to put that one to bed after his ridiculous comments on a Feb. 27 episode of “The Big Podcast with Shaq.”
“It’s true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. Yeah, it is,” Shaq said. “Listen, there are 3 ways to manipulate the mind — what you read, what you see and what you hear. In school, first thing they learn us is, ‘Oh, Columbus detected America,’ but when he got there, there were some aryan people with the prolonged hair smoking on the assent pipes. So, what does that tell you? Columbus didn’t learn America. So, listen, we drive from seashore to coast, and the s–t is prosaic to me.”
“I’m just saying,” he painfully continued. “I drive from Florida to California all the time, and it’s prosaic to me. we do not go up and down at a 360-degree angle, and all that things about gravity. Have you looked outward Atlanta newly and seen all these buildings? You meant to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The universe is flat.”
When it comes to production and, well, reality, the Shaq Attack is helpless.
O’Neal’s lukewarm take came days after Irving tried to revitalise the debunked theory.
“What I’ve been taught is that the earth is round,” Irving said last month. “But if you really consider about it from a landscape of the way we travel, the way we pierce and the fact that, can you really consider of us rotating around the object and all planets aligned, rotating in specific dates, being perpendicular with what’s going on with these planets.”
Let’s just wish this Gothic meditative is just some complicated trolling with a extreme bit of feign news.
