Kyrie Irving gets points for this one

We don’t often show love for a Duke Blue Devil, but I have to give Kyrie Irving credit for this Pepsi Max video. Irving sat through four hours of makeup work to become “Uncle Drew” and then hit the mean streets of Jersey for some pickup basketball.

The looks on everyone’s faces as the disguised Irving dominated the game are priceless.

    Even if almost everyone was in on it, it’s still pretty funny.

    And let’s be honest, he’s better than John Wall.

    That is an awesome commercial! Even is some of the sideline people are in on it and it’s obvious there are multiple cameras for the various angles, he still crossed some of those young bloods up.

    Amazing how Ksr puts a post about liking something that a Duke player does on a commercial, and the usually 100% of the BBn fans. Are downing other fans and teams. Hownow the comments are positive about the commercial lol!

    We all know had the post been about bashing it all poster comments would have followed suit,be your ownselves for a change.

    That was really cool haha, Irving just put himself in the “tolerable dookies” category with bilas for me.

    Would have been pretty cool if it was real. Models drinking Pepsi gave it away

    From the description of the youtube posting… sometimes it helps to read:

    Published on May 18, 2012 by Pepsi

    Pepsi MAX went to a pick-up game in Bloomfield, NJ pretending to shoot a documentary on a basketball player named “Kevin.” When his Uncle Drew came into the game, some magical things happened.

    How dumb do you have to be to actually believe this was real?

    I hate Duke as much as the next guy, but Kyrie is a baller.

    @18 uhh… yes he is. I hate to say it but Wall has did much his first 2 years in NBA and Irving thus far is better than him. Cavs and Wiz are equally junk teams.

    15 and 17… why did you correct yourself only to make your grammer worse?

    35. That’s grammar. if you’re gonna correct someone, at least spell it right.

    33. Wall averaged 8apg compared to Irving 5.5 Wall averaged 4.8 rpg to Irving 3.8. Irving averaged 2 more points per game. Irving shoots better but that is only area where he excels over Wall. Wall more assists, more steals, more rebounds, less turnovers both on crappy teams.

    Don’t get too excited about Irving yet. Great player with spectacular cross, but injury prone.

    It wasn’t the soda. Models even watching a pickup game in New Jersey gave it away. Still fun to watch!

    even if it was fake, it was funny. don’t be so negative, Youngblood.

    Cool commercial. I’m sure none of the other players thought anything about the camera and crew being there. Totally legit.

    1:44 pm May 19, 2012 Permalink

    Yay…more people don’t read…look at #30 comment. That is the description of the YouTube video. The cameras were there because it looked like a documentary for someone else. Of course it would be sketch if random cameras were there without an explanation…

    Dukie or not, that was pretty cool.

    And anyone thinking that Irving is better than John Wall needs to get unconfused.
