It’s been an entire year since Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving said in a podcast that he believes the Earth is flat.
It’s a laughable theory, no doubt. But it now appears that another professional athlete shares the same opinion as Irving when it comes to flat Earth debate.
New York Giants quarterback and former West Virginia player Geno Smith tweeted on Saturday that thinks he “may be with Kyrie Irving on this” after studying the “whole flat Earth vs. globe thing.”
I been studying this whole flat earth vs globe thing… and I think I may be with Kyrie on this… b4 you judge do some HW but what do you guys think?

That’s right. Add another flat Earth proponent to the list.
Smith, who hails from Lakemont, Ga., played at West Virginia from 2009-2012. He passed for a total of 1,465 yards and 98 touchdowns as a Mountaineer, and was named first-team All-Big East as a junior in 2011. He was drafted by in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft by the New York Jets.
Smith signed with the Giants ahead of the 2017 season, but only made one start on the year– a 24-17 loss to the Oakland Raiders.
Now, Smith is making headlines once again — though for a reason that the majority of fans will roll their eyes at.
