His name is Uncle Drew, and he’s a legend of “street ball” – that unique form of basketball that’s played on concrete and doesn’t include officials.
It’s where stars are born.
Uncle Drew was the top street baller back in the 1960s, with “ankle-breaking” moves that turned heads and a sweet stroke that everyone emulated. Then an off-court incident slowed his career.
Today, Uncle Drew can be found on those same basketball courts, watching the action from the stands and commenting on how “Dr. Naismith would be rolling in his grave” at the current state of the game.
