Kyrie Irving is Uncle Drew.

He was nothing but buckets in those Pepsi commercials, and he smoked the young bloods in the viral online miniseries. Now, as you know, Uncle Drew — Kyrie Irving’s silver-haired, street-ballin’ alter ego — is getting a full-blown movie. “Uncle Drew,” starring Irving in full elder prosthetics, follows the title character’s triumphant return to the court for one last shot at victory. It’s a classic sports movie premise, but could it actually be good? Well, judging from the trailer that just hit the ’Net, the answer is a definitive maybe. Uncle Drew’s got his team of “old” legends: Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, and Lisa Leslie — all with gray hair and wrinkles. “Uncle Drew,” which also stars Lil Rel Howery, Nick Kroll, and Tiffany Haddish, is out June 29.
