What’s up with the unabashed betrayal of science among NBA players?
Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving, of course, kinda-sorta believes the Earth is flat. And Philadelphia 76ers sharpshooter J.J. Redick recently revealed that he’s not so sure dinosaurs ever walked the flat/round Earth.
That brings us to Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson, who has one of the most laughably incorrect takes about dinosaurs.
During a recent episode of UNINTERRUPTED’s “Road Trippin” podcast, Clarkson, while talking to dino-doubter DJ Montage, said this stuff:
“I don’t believe in dinosaurs either,” Clarkson said. “Well no, I actually do. I believe that — this is gonna get a little crazy. I’m gonna take y’all a little left on this. OK, so y’all know how we got dogs and stuff, right?”
Tell us more! Tell us more!
“So, I think it was bigger people in the world before us, and, like, the dinosaurs (were their) pets.”
DJ Montage then asked, “On a leash? Like a pet? so how big were these people?”
The Clarkson said this: “Oh, you look at a dinosaur. They got to be three times bigger than them.”
So, to recap: Clarkson believes there once were giant humans that walked dinosaurs like pets. Whether he’s been informed that the average size of homo sapiens has increased over time remains unclear.
What a time to be alive.
