by March 05, 2018

At the Oscars on Sunday night, actor Lil Rel Howery, who stars in the upcoming ‘Uncle Drew’ movie alongside Kyrie Irving, described the moment the All-Star point guard discovered he had been traded from Cleveland to Boston:

The dopest moment was when the trade actually went through, he was so happy, man. We was in the middle of a scene. We was shooting a scene, his homeboy comes in and whispers in his ear and he just runs out the — we filming — he just runs out, we was in the club shooting a scene, runs out. So happy. He comes back and everybody’s applauding. And it was a dancing scene, so when you see it and he’s really getting it, that was real life. He was really happy.


‘Uncle Drew’ film hits theaters on June 29.
