Naturally, Irving was asked if he still believes the world is flat during an appearance on NBA TV program The Starters.
"I felt like that question was going to come," Irving responded while laughing.
"For me, it's not about whether the world is flat, or whether the world is round. It's really about just everyone believing what they want to believe and feeling comfortable with it.
"I'm not a scientist. I'm not here to tell everyone that this is it. For me, it's just giving everyone a chance to do their own research and find their own knowledge rather than having knowledge shoved to you. That's me."
Perhaps sailing around the world's oceans would change Irving's mind on the subject.
