Your newest flat-earther just might be Danny Ainge

Has Kyrie Irving won over Danny Ainge when it comes to believing that earth is flat?Winslow Townson/Associated Press/File

Danny Ainge may be coming around on this flat-earth thing.

As long as he has Kyrie Irving on his team, that is.

The Celtics executive was in a good mood Monday night, in the wake of his team’s 110-102 overtime victory over the Mavericks in Dallas. The Celtics extended their winning streak to 16, and Irving was a big reason for it.

And the offseason acquisition, who’s spoken about his belief in earth being flat, scored 47 points and carried his teammates on his back.

Ainge had a little fun with the topic.
