BREAKING: New 2018 Uncle Drew Movie
TIP: “You don’t stop playing because you get old, you get old because you stop playing”
– Kyrie Irving might be the flashiest finisher and craftiest player the NBA has ever seen. We know him for his amazing ball handling skills and the ability to get any team 2 points or “a bucket” at the drop of a dime. That’s why he was #2 on the Cavs and is currently Roman Numeral II on the Celtics.
But, more importantly… We know him for 2016’s THE SHOT!
Well, it seems Mr. Clutch himself is getting his “shot” at the big screen in 2018. After a successful series of Pepsi commercials introducing us to his Uncle Drew character, he’s managed to have landed himself a deal for a major motion picture with Lionsgate.
The film has just been announced with June 29, 2018 release which is a little over a week after the NBA Finals. The film stars Kyrie Irving, Lil Rel Howery, Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, Chris Webber, Erica Ash, Lisa Leslie, with Tiffany Haddish and Nick Kroll.
Being the new leader of the Boston Celtics, frontman for one of Nike’s hottest sneakers in the Kyrie 4’s and this movie to top it off, it’s safe to say Kyrie is having an amazing 2018.
I respect his will to get out from under the shadow of LeBron James to build his brand and lead a new team. It makes the league that much more interesting and competitive. Is this movie a must-see?
