Sammy Watkins Sides with Kyrie Irving, Supports Flat-Earth Theory

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Sammy Watkins took an unpopular stance when he agreed with Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving on the flat-Earth theory, per Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry.

The idea seems so ridiculous to those who've been taught about a sphere-shaped Earth that one Twitter user wanted further verification on Watkins' thoughts:

The four-time NBA All-Star Irving may have opened the door for others to further explain their theories about a flat Earth.

Watkins won't have much time to go into specifics about his astronomical knowledge. The Rams are preparing for a Thursday Night Football game against the San Francisco 49ers.
