Celtics legend Bill Russell makes a cameo appearance in the latest installment of Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving's "Uncle Drew" video series.

"Uncle Drew Chapter 2" begins with a conversation between Russell and Drew about basketball, and Russell implores Drew to reassemble his team in a Blues Brothers "mission from God" kind of way. Drew is an aging hoopster played by Irving who, in his first viral video, showed up at a street game to surprise an unsuspecting gathering with his court savvy.

"Drew, you're a real baller. You've got to get out there and put your team back together again," Russell says. "Go find them."

At Drew's first stop, he picks up "Wes," played by Timberwolves star Kevin Love, and they find a street game to reprise the moments that made the first video so humorous, lulling the opposition with one mistake after another before coming to life and hitting long jumpers and throwing down dunks.
