James Thomas Thinks The Earth Is Flat Anderson Cook

Aspiring physicist Noah Roberson can’t seem to get anybody in his neighborhood to care about science. NBA All-Star (and notorious flat-earther) James Thomas has been struck by the “yips”: suddenly, inexplicably, he can’t shoot. When James’ manager sends him to Noah’s science fair for image rehab, the two immediately butt heads – and launch into an improbable partnership that could send Noah to the National Science Fair, and James back to his former glory.
