June could be a big month for Kyrie Irving. Not only are the Boston Celtics among the Eastern Conference teams capable of making a deep playoff run, perhaps even resulting in a trip to the NBA Finals. But Irving also revealed that his “Uncle Drew” movie will hit theaters on June 29. Irving previously debuted his “Uncle Drew” alter ego in a Pepsi ad campaign in which the All-Star point guard dressed as an old man and proceeded to dominate unsuspecting skeptics in street ball. The premise since has been made into a film featuring several other basketball stars, including Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Nate Robinson and Lisa Leslie.
