Three years ago, Kyrie Irving and Nate Robinson were battling on the basketball court when Robinson, then playing for the Chicago Bulls, took a quick break in the action to ask the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard a question.
"Can you get me into Uncle Drew?" Robinson asked.
Three years and 54 million YouTube views later, Irving and Pepsi are unveiling the fourth installment of the Uncle Drew saga. This time Irving's old man Drew is battling Walt, played by Ray Allen, in an epic game of horse.
"It's awesome to get to chapter four," said Irving, who wrote and directed the nearly seven-minute video. "I just love every time when fans get to discover who else will join me. I surround myself with great people and love the freedom to come up with a new vision."
The film, also featuring Baron Davis and comedian J.B. Smoove, was shot in one day in Miami as Irving was rehabbing the broken kneecap he suffered in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Sneakerheads rejoice: Nike has produced 150 "Uncle Drew" boxes that feature a special Uncle Drew version of Kyrie's signature shoe that he wears in the film, a sweatshirt with a new Uncle Drew logo and a new bobblehead.
And yes, Robinson did get his Uncle Drew moment. You can see it here.
