Famous for portraying the character Uncle Drew, an old guy from Pepsi commercials who schools fools on the B-Ball court, among other things, Kyrie Irving is one of the most interesting names in the most interesting offseason in NBA history, so it can’t be a great look to be in Madison Square Garden looking like you’re halfway to becoming the real life Uncle Drew.
DAZN tweeted out a photo of Irving at the fight, and while you can blame a terrible angle, terrible lighting or the fact that Kyrie aged 20 years in his 2 seasons in Boston, he looks like a completely different human being from his introductory press conference with the Celtics.
It would be Knicks luck, however, to score a superstar who’s aging past his prime right before their eyes. Congrats on scoring Grandpa, Knicks fans!!
PS, I’m not bitter. Go C’s.
