The NBA is becoming the go-to place for wild theories about our world.
First, Kyrie Irving embraced the earth is flat conspiracy.
Now, former Missouri and current Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson has a bizarre opinion of his own.
In an appearance on the Road Trippin Podcast, Clarkson said he thinks dinosaurs were just enormous domestic animals.
“Y’all know how we got dogs and stuff right?” Clarkson asks. “So, I think it was bigger people in the world before us, and the dinosaurs was they pets.”
To which podcast co-host DJ Montage responded, “How big were these people?”
And Clarkson answered: “Oh, you look at a dinosaur, they got to be three times bigger than them.”
What on earth is in the water in Cleveland? Irving of course played his entire career with the Cavs before his trade to Boston in the offseason, and Clarkson just recently joined the team at the NBA trade deadline.
Cleveland is the common denominator in this craziness.
Clarkson played for Mizzou for one season in 2013-14 after transferring from Tulsa. He put up outstanding numbers for the Tigers, averaging 17.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game while starting all 35 games.
He gradually worked his way up through the rotation with the Lakers and became a valuable contributor on both ends of the court before being traded to Cleveland, where he has helped boost what was one of the league’s worst defensive units.
