Riley Curry Has Already Made the Leap to Modeling (Pics)
Kyrie Irving’s Uncle Drew Returns to Play HORSE with Ray Allen (Video)
While sports commercials certainly aren’t what they once were, that doesn’t mean that we don’t get a gem every once in a while.
Kyrie Irving‘s geriatric alter ego Uncle Drew was one such gem. He was gone for a while as Kyrie focused on more pressing matters, like a title chase and rehabbing his injury, but now he’s back, and he’s faced with the formidable task of knocking off retired sharpshooter Ray Allen in a game of HORSE.
Take a look:
Of course, these pranks become victims of their own success, as the gig is up when the audience starts applauding an old man interrupting a pickup game, then get handed Pepsi bottles by a half-dozen marketing interns. Maybe take Uncle Drew to Europe and just have him hustle people for cash.
Regardless, it’s still pretty funny.
