This summer, Kyrie Irving will decide which team he will lace up his sneakers for in the coming season. Last summer, he was busy promoting the latest installment of the wildly popular Uncle Drew mockumentary series. Just having makeup applied to transform into the aging hoopster required a significant time commitment in and of itself.

''It's tough, but it's fun at the same time. It took exactly 3 hours and 47 minutes to do my makeup. Then you go outside and you don't wanna sweat too much.''

— Kyrie Irving, on becoming Uncle Drew

When it debuted in 2012, Irving had no idea how popular his Uncle Drew character would become. He reveled in watching the first installment of the Pepsi-sponsored videos reach 1,000 views on YouTube. Now six years later, the opening chapter has more than 50 million views.

Uncle Drew the movie, which was released in the summer of 2018, cleared more than $40 million at the box office to become the sixth highest grossing basketball movie of all time. Here we present here the first four chapters of Irving’s ongoing saga for your viewing pleasure…


Uncle Drew subs in for an injured player during his nephew’s pickup game at Clarks Pond courts in Bloomfield, New Jersey. Rusty at first, Uncle Drew soon shows the young ballers how to “get buckets.”


Buoyed by his play in New Jersey and encouragement from Bill Russell, Uncle Drew hits the road to start putting his old team back together. In Los Angeles he tracks down big man Wes (Kevin Love) working as a clerk at a nondescript hardware store. The two head to Jim Gilliam Park in Crenshaw for a pickup game and prove to the local “young bloods” that they still have the right stuff.


In Chicago, Uncle Drew finds his old teammate “Lights Out” Jenkins (Nate Robinson) headlining on trumpet at a jazz club. The two drive to Seward Park to showcase their improvisational skills built upon basketball fundamentals. Old-flame Betty Lou (Maya Moore) joins the two in making beautiful music on the court.


In Miami, Uncle Drew connects with Louis (Baron Davis) and Angelo (JB Smoove) and learns that Walt (Ray Lewis) has been talking trash about him. Not one to back down from a challenge, Uncle Drew plays Walt in a game of H-O-R-S-E at Margaret Pace Park.


In the Uncle Drew movie, Irving is joined by artificially-aged NBA legends Chris Webber, Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller and Robinson, as well as former WNBA star Lisa Leslie, for an epic battle at New York City’s famed Rucker Park.
