Watch NBA Rookie of the Year school the kids as 'Uncle Drew'5/19/2012
Maybe it seems as if Kyrie Irving is just trying to flesh out one of the characters from LeBron James' old Nike ads, but the mockumentary he put together in cahoots with Pepsi Max is funny nonetheless. The NBA Rookie of the Year descends on a pickup game in New Jersey as "Uncle Drew," a graybeard baller who bags on young players and their "rappity hippity hop" and then proceeds to go from air-balling old stiff to dunking machine. "You want to switch sneakers?" he asks the "young blood" guarding him at one point. "Damn, he got hospital shoes on." Turns out Irving wrote the show himself - so maybe he's got a second career to fall back on when he's no longer a "young blood."
Would you have been fooled by 'Uncle Drew?'
