Last Updated: 40 days ago
DENVER - Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson is already making his mark on the team through social media.
In the offseason, Robinson dribbled a basketball through an airport and posted his ankle-breaking moves over Instagram. (Mobile users can watch the video here: http://ftw.usatoday.com/2013/08/nate-robinson-airport-crossover-video/)
Now, the 5’9” scorer is at it again, this time he teamed up with WNBA star Maya Moore and Cleveland Cavaliers former rookie of the year, Kyrie Irving to be on the third Pepsi Max Uncle Drew commercial.
The trio each puts on make-up that makes them look like older people. They then go to play basketball against street ballers at Seward Park in Chicago.
The crowd doesn’t know that these “older” ball players are professional athletes. They soon find out when Robinson, Irving and Moore start connecting on three-pointers and throwing down dunks and alley-oops.
To see the crowd’s amazement, click on the video below.
