Kyrie Irving ad for Foot Locker debuts

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Shedding his "Uncle Drew" character for a moment, Cavs guard Kyrie Irving shows off his latest move in a funny new ad for Foot Locker: "The Cinematic Dunk"

Already known as a rather humorous guy from his portrayal of the character "Uncle Drew" in those ads for adidas, Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving rolled out the latest example of his comedic timing Wednesday afternoon, this time through Foot Locker.

Previewing something called "The Week of Greatness," which sounds like something really awesome but probably consists of just trying to sell a lot of basketball shoes, Irving reveals his (possible unfortunate) ability to slam down "cinematic dunks," even when he apparently has little interest in doing so:

"Koala!"

Already a favorite in Cleveland and around the country for his sweet shooting stroke and ridiculous ball-handling, Irving's sense of humor certainly doesn't hurt his image as one of the NBA's most-likable superstars. It's also nice to see him leave the whole "Uncle Drew" thing behind for a minute to show us something different.

Over the first eight games of the season, Irving has averaged 24.3 points per game and 6.5 assists per game while shooting 47 percent from the floor.
