Here’s a few more behind-the-scenes footage from the upcoming Uncle Drew movie starring Kyrie Irving. Reggie Miller, Shaq, Chris Webber, Lisa Leslie, Kyrie Irving, Nate Robinson, comedian Nick Kroll, LilRel Howery of Get Out and Erica Ash from the LeBron-produced show Survivor’s Remorse.
The most amusing highlights from behind-the-scenes footage so far has been Kyrie Irving and Reggie Miller playing pop-a-shot basketball at a D&B and 5’9 Nate Robinson dunking on his former teammate, Shaq, like he did in practice seven years ago.
Speaking of the 3 x dunk champ during his younger days in the league, here’s a ‘Then & Now’ graphic with Nate and everyone’s favorite uncle.
Here’s the plot of the comedy, which sounds like a mixture between White Men Can’t Jump and The Blues Brothers: After draining his life savings to enter a team in the Rucker Classic street ball tournament in Harlem, Dax (Lil Rel Howery) is dealt a series of unfortunate setbacks, including losing his team to his longtime rival (Nick Kroll). Desperate to win the tournament and the cash prize, Dax stumbles upon the man, the myth, the legend UNCLE DREW (NBA All-Star Kyrie Irving) and convinces him to return to the court one more time. The two men embark on a road trip to round up Drew’s old basketball squad (Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson, and Lisa Leslie) and prove that a group of septuagenarians can still win the big one.
