Back in 2017, Shaquille O’Neal baffled his many fans when he suggested that he believed the Earth is flat while defending flat earther Kyrie Irving.

“This is not even a conspiracy theory,” Irving said back then. “The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat.”

Irving later apologized for suggesting that the Earth is flat. (He did not, however, apologize for openly wondering if dinosaurs ever really existed.)

Shaq, on the other hand, never apologized for defending Irving when he said, “It’s true. The Earth is flat. The Earth is flat. Yes, it is.”

He expounded on his claim by adding, “I drive from coast to coast, and this s–t 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 a 360-degree angle, and all that stuff about gravity, have you looked outside Atlanta lately and seen all these buildings? You mean to tell me that China is under us? China is under us? It’s not. The world is flat.”

This week, Shaq was back at it again during an interview on the Kyle and Jackie O radio show in Australia.

Shaq explained once again why he thinks the Earth might be flat

“It’s a theory. It’s just a theory,” O’Neal told the hosts. “They teach us a lot of things, it’s just a theory. For example, I flew 20 hours today. Not once did I go this way [makes a circular motion]. I flew straight. I didn’t tip over, I didn’t go upside down. So, it’s just a theory. A conspiracy theory.”

Host Kyle Sandilands then explained to Shaq, “No, you could, because if you left New York you can fly that way to Australia [points one direction] and if you left out of Los Angeles you can fly that way [points the other direction]. So how does that work?”

“Yeah, but it’s still a straight line. I didn’t go under,” Shaq answered.

He then questioned if the world is really spinning.

“I’ve been living on the house of the lake for 30 years. Not once did the lake rotate to the left,” he added, eliciting a bit of agreement from Kyle.

The entire interview, as usual when it comes to Shaq, is very entertaining and funny. Take a look…
