Kyrie Irving leads a team of National Basketball Association legends in 'Uncle Drew'

Screen Shot

You may not care what Kyrie Irving does with his free time now that he's the enemy, but we're also an entertainment site, so here's your first look at the "Uncle Drew" movie.

Kyrie Irving reprises his role as Uncle Drew in the Uncle Drew movie, which follows Get Out's Lil Rel Howery as he begs his uncle to help him beat the reigning team at a tournament. Sporting white hair and fake facial hair, Kyrie is nearly unrecognizable as the titular character who shows off his best moves on the court and beats his younger opponents. "You're old because you stop playing", Drew shares some words of wisdom to Dax. Shaquille O'Neal, Reggie Miller, Naate Robinson, Chris Webber and Lisa Leslie play members of Drew's basketball squad.

Terps Edged at Nebraska
Nebraska needs to dial up the offensive pace and defensive intensity on Maryland's guards and wear them down from the jump. Maybe the most important matchup tonight will be Nebraska's perimeter defense against Maryland's 3-point shooting.

We do kind of like the Shaq Fu nod, even if it's a bit odd to see Heihachi Shaq show up ready to throw down, and we're glad that Tiffany Haddish and Lil Rel Howery are getting nice fat checks out of being in this movie. Desperate to win the tournament and the cash prize, Dax stumbles upon the man, the myth, the legend Uncle Drew (NBC All-Star Kyrie Irving) and convinces him to return to the court one more time.

The series spawned multiple followup commercials of Uncle Drew traveling around to various courts and humiliating real life people.
