Youngbloods beware, Uncle Drew is back. This time, he has a pick ‘n roll partner and a hoops legend as co-stars. Kyrie Irving, the star of Pepsi Max’s “Uncle Drew” commercial, returns for a second installment with Kevin Love as “Wes”, his old teammate, and Bill Russell, who reminisces about the way the game used to be played. Check out the new video here.
I apologize for blowing up the website with videos on videos but I was late to this Uncle Drew party. Kind of ironic because I was discussing how great the first Uncle Drew commercial was and BAM, Pepsi hits us with another one. Celtics legend, Bill Russell makes an appearance in this.
