Perfectly timed for the start of the NBA season, Pepsi released the latest installment of the Uncle Drew initiative: Chapter 3.
By now, all the young bloods out there should be aware of who #UncleDrew is and the vicious cross-overs he brings to the playground while posing as an old man.
With each progressive chapter, Uncle Drew, played by Kyrie Irving, introduces us to his former teammates—the throwback ballers with ridiculously modern skills.
In chapter 3, Uncle Drew convinces his old point-guard, “Lights” (played by high-flying Nate Robinson, to come out and ball. Not only does Lights make it worth our while, but his on-screen partner, “Betty Lou” (Maya Moore of the Minnesota Lynx), also puts young bloods to shame.
“It was a very humbling experience, I’m just glad I got the chance to team up with one of the best point guards in the game right now in Kyrie Irving as Uncle Drew, Mr. AKA Get Buckets.”
