We all laughed and shook our heads when Kyrie Irving claimed he believed the Earth was flat. At the time, Kyrie’s flat-Earth theory was the hottest scientific take made by a basketball player. Cavs guard Jordan Clarkson managed to steal Kyrie’s thunder, though.
Clarkson appeared on Channing Frye and Richard Jerfferson’s “Road Trippin'” podcast this week where he stated he believed dinosaurs were actually pets for enormous humans.
“So y’all know how we got dogs and stuff, right?” Clarkson asked. “So, I think it was bigger people in the world before us, and, like, the dinosaurs was they pets.”
Clarkson would go onto explain that the humans had to be three times the size of dinosaurs. Nobody really knows if Clarkson, a University of Missouri product, truly believes that giant people really used to own dinosaurs as pets. After stating this, Clarkson would go onto score 17 points in a win against the Bucks and four points in a win over the Raptors.
Maybe he was just trolling, maybe he was dead serious, maybe Jordan Clarkson knows something about historical science that none of us know. The one thing that is for sure is, if he and the Cavs keep annihilating the Toronto Raptors, he can believe that dinosaurs can somehow be pets.
