Kyrie Irving has lived with the nickname Uncle Drew ever since the first chapter of the popular Pepsi series became an internet hit. 

The point guard's stock has never been bigger following his title-winning clutch shot for the Cleveland Cavaliers over the Golden State Warriors, and he has admitted that 'something big' is being planned for the character. 

There is no time frame on when the next installment of Uncle Drew will be released, but the Australian-born star admitted he does not believe it will happen on YouTube. 

"I wouldn't promise the next summer, but there is something big that we're planning which I'm really excited about," Irving told Joe Vardon of "Hopefully the details can be released in the forthcoming future but I'm excited about it. There will be a last chapter that will happen but I don't think it will be on YouTube."

"So the chapters are continuing. I'm almost known as Uncle Drew now, so, it's cool."

His Cleveland teammate LeBron James owns the media company SpringHill Entertainment, but Irving's agent does not think they will be partnering up for Uncle Drew. 

Jeff Wechsler added: "LeBron and Maverick (Carter) are doing great things, but what we're talking about won't be with them."
