    Yes, it's basically a commercial for PepsiMax, and I don't know how much of this is a work, but Kyrie Irving does a good job with his alter ego.

    That's not "basically" a commercial for PepsiMax. It's a commercial for PepsiMax. :D

    What are you talking about? I go to urban-city parks ALL THE TIME and there are always a large group of attractive women sitting around watching people they don't know play basketball and they ALWAYS drink PepsiMax with the logo facing the camera.

    Just another Saturday night, really.

    The story is that it was set up to be a Pepsi commercial. So the people knew cameras would be there, Pepsi plugs, etc. But that they were there for a shoot with "Kevin," the nephew who was in on it. Everything I've read indicates the players weren't in on it and the makeup was so good that obviously they didn't know it was Irving. It's very cool regardless, but I choose to believe the action itself was spontaneous. You cynical bastards can believe otherwise.

    Don't know the back story, but a few of the players on and off the court are wearing gear from my town's HS hoops team.

    It was shot in N.J., so if you are from there...it could likely by why
