Once the unsuspecting ballers that tried to check Kyrie Irving in the Pepsi Uncle Drew ads found out they were playing an NBA All-Star just as young as they were, they felt pretty good about themselves.  But what if a bunch of young cocky ballers had to play non pro players twice their age?  How would they feel losing to a bunch of guys that really do look like their Dads and Uncles?

Centrum vitamins gathered a bunch of basketball vets like 55 year old coach Ron Naclerio, 53 year old Jack “Black Jack” Ryan, and 46 year old Anthony Heyward, better known to most as Half-Man Half-Amazing from the original And1 mixtapes, and asked them to play some young bloods earlier this month in Harlem, Here’s the amusing result.


Here’s also a couple vids of a few of the old timers proving that age ain’t nothing but a number…but I would have loved to have seen a video of those guys waking up the next morning.
