Cavs’ Jordan Clarkson Has Concerning Take On Dinosaur-Human Relationships

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.”

Oh no…

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.
