Boston Celtics superstar Kyrie Irving's 'flat Earth' theory was the source of much ridicule for the man also known as Uncle Drew.
Well, doing a recent live interview, Irving decided to walk back the flat-earth conspiracy and apologize in the process.
Kyrie pointed out how the conspiratorial conversations should be reserved for more intimate settings rather than broadcasting controversial opinions and theories.
He said this controversy made him understand the range of platform and touched on the responsibility of that power.
Hopefully he never really believed the earth was flat, and was just going along with it after he his comments elicited such a strong reaction.
Like an extended April Fools Prank.
