Plot summary

What is Uncle Drew movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Uncle Drew" movie plot summary.

The film opens with a documentary-style overview of Uncle Drew (Kyrie Irving), a well-remembered basketball legend who was supposed to play in the Rucker Classic. However, due to an unknown conflict, he and his team disappeared. In the present, Dax Winslow (Lil Rel Howery) is the underappreciated coach of the Harlem Money and their star player, Casper Jones (Aaron Gordon). Dax spends lavishly to keep both his girlfriend, Jess (Tiffany Haddish), and Casper happy, despite being a clerk at Foot Locker. During practice Mookie Bass (Nick Kroll), an old rival of Dax's, arrives and taunts him about the upcoming Rucker Classic tournament. In a dream sequence, it is revealed that Dax was an orphan who planned on becoming a basketball player, but was humiliated by Mookie after he had a shot blocked by him in their youth. The next day at work Casper demands expensive new shoes from Dax, who effectively bankrupts himself purchasing them. Despite this, Mookie successfully recruits Casper and the rest of Dax's team away from him, leading to a confrontation involving Dax forcibly trying to remove Casper's shoes that is filmed and shown on ESPN. Due to this humiliation, Dax's girlfriend Jess dumps him and kicks him out of her apartment.
Dejected, Dax has little luck finding players for a new team until the cantankerous Angelo (J.B. Smoove) encourages him to seek out Uncle Drew. Drew turns out to be an exceptional basketball player despite his old age. After seeing a demonstration of Drew's prowess, Dax recruits him for the team, neglecting to inform him about the tournament's prize money. Drew agrees to join Dax under the condition that they recruit his original teammates.
