Pepsi MAX does this great thing where they dress Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving up as a graying, feeble old man, put him in sweats and send him to streetball locales around the nation to shock the hoopsters there.

The brand released the series a year and a half ago when Irving -- "Uncle Drew" -- steps foot on a basketball court in Bloomfield, NJ and shows up younger players with a slew of ankle-breaking cross-ups, dunks and deep three-pointers.

After the second episode featured a crusty Kevin Love, Pepsi MAX brought in Nate Robinson -- "Lights" -- and WNBA star Maya Moore -- "Betty Lou" -- for part three.

The trio dazzle in Chicago and Uncle Drew drops his usual "youngbloods" more than a dozen times in reference to the younger players on the court.
