Shaquille O’Neal has been in a lot of weird promotional gigs. From sponsoring Icy hot, to being in The General Car Insurance commercials, and on the radio with ads about getting stopped by the police. But now he’s doing his weirdest thing ever: doing a movie, about BASKETBALL.
The new movie, Uncle Drew (out in theaters June 29), is about a few retired basketball players who get back together to play in a street league. Along with O’Neal are NBA stars Kyrie Irving, Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, and Nate Robinson rounding out the group.
The trailer looks a little bit cheesy, but at least they are using real basketball players who know what they’re doing. Take a look for yourself.
