Uncle Drew, aka NBA Rookie of the year Kyrie Irving, visits with a basketball legend Bill Russell who sends him on a mission to go out and get his old team back together.
“What these youngbloods have to understand [is] that this game has always been, and will always be, about buckets,” says the great Bill Russell.
Uncle Drew first stop —- Los Angeles, CA. Uncle Drew hooks back up with his boy Wes, aka Kevin Love, and after some reminiscing the OGs hit up Jim Gilliam Park in Crenshaw and proceed to get buckets.
Players and spectators at the basketball court were told that they would be filmed for some “basketball b-roll footage” for a local TV station. Put it this way : these young bloods had no idea what was coming.
