There is a full-size “Uncle Drew” film popping out subsequent yr, full with its star, Kyrie Irving. Filming passed off this summer time, together with co-stars like Reggie Miller, Chris Webber, and Shaquille O’Neal.

The truth is, Miller was on set with Irving Aug. 30 when the latter found he had been traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Boston Celtics – and he says that Irving was the one one with out his telephone on him.

“We’re on this small van on the brink of shoot a scene and all of our telephones ding on the similar time, apart from Kyrie. He did not have his telephone,” Miller stated Wednesday on NBA on TNT’s season-opening convention name.

“And we checked out our telephones, and C-Webb, he checked out us like ‘Kyrie Irving’s been traded to Boston, proper?’ And we’re taking a look at each other like, ‘ought to we inform him?’ Clearly we needed to inform him trigger he was like proper in entrance of us. So all of us confirmed him the telephone.”

The commerce in all probability did not come as a complete shock to Irving, seeing because it had been closely reported for over a month that the purpose guard needed off the Cavs – one thing he or his agent by no means denied. Now after the very fact, Irving freely admits that he needed out from LeBron James’ shadow, and even feels snug taking veiled photographs on the metropolis of Cleveland.
