Pro sports greatest winner, Bill Russell, begins "Chapter 2" with an exhortation that Uncle Drew put his team back together again:

"I remember at my best, there would be nights where the whole world would slow down and get very quiet. I could hear the ball bounce and nothing existed outside of this game. What these youngbloods have to understand is that this game has always been, and will always be...about buckets."

The first teammate just so happens to be an All-Star and Olympian from Minnesota. It's another hilariously wonderful short, and it's extra cool that Irving is credited with writing and directing it all. It finishes with Russell saying, "This is just the beginning," so you'd have to think there will be more chapters with more famous NBA stars turned septuagenarians.
