Denver Nuggets star Nate Robinson and WNBA MVP Maya Moore took their skills to the playground to fool spectators in the latest Pepsi Max commercial. A hit with the youtube fans, the Pepsi Max commercials first became popular when Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving dressed up as “Uncle Drew”, an old man who had uncanny abilities on the court, and dominated local playground players with high flying dunks. Following in Irving’s footsteps, Robinson dressed up as “Light” Jenkins, one of Drew’s old teammates turned jazz trumpeter, and Moore dressed up as his sister Betty Lou Jenkins. Both took to the court and dominated the local playground talent by draining long outside shots. The 5-9 Robinson also wowed the crowd with some high flying dunks when he was not attempting to play the trumpet.
A former first round pick of the Phoenix Suns, Robinson began his career with the Knicks in 2005 and quickly became a fan favorite by winning the 2006, 2009, and 2010 Slam Dunk Contest. At just 5-9, Robinson has a huge vertical jump and can throw down dunks with the best of them. During his 11 year NBA career he has played with the Knicks, Celtics, Thunder, Warriors, Bulls, and now calls the Denver Nuggets home.
Maya Moore is the WNBA Finals reigning MVP. The former University of Connecticut star who won two NCAA Championships has brought her success to the WNBA with the Minnesota Lynx, leading them to WNBA Championships in 2011 and 2013. In 2011 the Lynx made Moore the number 1 overall pick, and she has made the most of her opportunity, being named the WNBA Rookie of the Year in 2011 and the being named to the First Team All-WNBA in 2013. In 2012 Moore led the US Women’s Basketball team to a Gold Medal in the London Olympic Games. She is considered to be one of the best players in the WNBA and also one of the greatest female athletes in the world.
