Kyrie Irving grows up before our eyes as "Uncle Drew"

It didn't take a genius to realize that Cavs rookie (and until recently, teenaged) phenom Kyrie Irving had basketball skills and maturity beyond his years. But who knew how old a soul young master Irving truly had?

In this new video sponsored by Pepsi Max, Kyrie Irving writes, directs, and stars in a short entitled, and about, "Uncle Drew."  In the five minute video, Kyrie goofs on the current "rappity hippity hop" generation of ballers, and pays homage to street ball in Bloomfield, New Jersey, at Clark's Ponds Court. Quite hilariously, I might add.

(Let's just forget about the last Cavaliers star who dressed up as an old man in a commercial.)
