There's no way Kyrie Irving actually believes the world is flat. But he's still talking about it. His latest explanation is ... confusing.

Appearing on J.J. Redick's podcast, the Celtics guard once again addressed his theories on the shape of the earth. They came from watching videos on Instagram.

"When I said it, though, I had been watching a whole bunch of Instagram videos," Irving said. "Meaning, like, I had these specific pages on Instagram that were like, 'The truth given to you,' and videos like, 'This is the flat Earth, and the horizon evens out only on a flat Earth,' and I was like -- I didn't do as much research as I had (to) in order to say something like that, because I was just ready to blurt it out, like, 'Flat Earth, man. It's a conspiracy theory. They want to get us.' And when you start thinking about it, it's just like, the actual intent behind it was just, like, 'Do your own research.' You know what I mean? And that's it. A lot of the things that were just told to me, I was just like, 'Oh, OK.'"

Confused? That's OK. Redick went on to say that he questions whether dinosaurs existed, even though he knows he's 100 percent wrong.

Irving added once again that he wants everyone to do their own research.
