Boston Celtics Introduce Kyrie Irving
As long as he’s in Boston now, Kyrie Irving, aka Uncle Drew, should recruit some Celtics legends to help his new movie out.

Former Duke star Kyrie Irving has had a busy summer. Aside from his very public split with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the newest Celtic has been developing his Uncle Drew character.

If you’re reading this site you’ve probably seen the Pepsi ads where a decrepit Uncle Drew shows the kids how the old guys played the game.

So now Irving is doing an Uncle Drew movie.

It’s a road trip movie where Uncle Drew goes out and enlists some other old guys to go conquer Ruckers. Should be fun.
