Pepsi MAX & Kyrie Irving Present: "Uncle Drew"

NBA Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving goes decidedly old school in this entertaining short film for Pepsi MAX. Under the guise of "Uncle Drew" -- an old timer who grew up watching the Big O and Wilt, who has no time for flashy shoes and all that "rappity hippity hop" -- enters a pickup game in Clark's Pond courts in Bloomfield, New Jersey. Following a couple of air balls and a brick or two, Uncle Drew gets in the zone, raining down easy buckets and even throwing down a thunderous jam. Uncle Drew even engages in some trash talk, pointing out an opposing player's "hospital shoes." Written and directed by Kyrie Irving, the faux mini-doc can be viewed below.
