Love Appears In Successful "Uncle Drew" Series

Like the first installment, both Irving and Love struggle to start their games against the “young bloods” before quickly getting up to speed. By the show’s end, the two are torching their younger opponents with crossovers, deep jumpers and alley-oops—much to their counterpart’s surprise and amazement. Love said he and Irving have gotten to know each other over the past few years, and over the course of an hour and a half the two shot the entire video, which runs five minutes, 21 seconds. NBA legend Bill Russel also makes an appearance. The longest part, Love said, was getting into costume. That process took six hours. “Some people were calling me Luke Walton at first,” Love said. “They were messing with me, because honestly they thought I was an old guy and I was limping and acted like I had a little hip injury. We had a lot of fun with it and it came out as a good product.” Irving had a believable elderly voice, Love said, but he had trouble with his. “Kyrie, he sure can make an elderly voice. Mine, you can sure tell which one is mine,” Love said. “I just tried to put a little rasp in it. Pepsi had gone with it, too. I said, ‘I can’t make an old man voice.’ They said, ‘yeah, that adds part of it.’ I said, ‘I can’t act,’ and they said, ‘Yeah, that’s part of it, too. It’s supposed to be like that.’”
