Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday may play for the same team now, but on Friday, they’ll be cheering for opposite sides when Kentucky takes on UCLA. In that spirit, the folks at Pelicans.com put together this fun video of the two talking trash, although it might be the mildest trash talking I’ve ever seen.
“We kind of owe UCLA,” Davis said. “They beat us early in the year in Rupp, which we don’t take too kindly. We’re going to see them Friday and try come back and beat them when it counts.”
“We’re not worried,” Holiday, who played for the Bruins from 2008-09, said.
Davis wore his Kentucky jersey into the Pelicans arena on Sunday to support the Cats and said he will again on Friday.
“It’s not going to be a hard game,” Davis. “It’s going to be pretty easy for us. We’re going to win by at least 12. We’re going to win by at least 12. I think we’re locked in. We’ve got a lot better players.”
Holiday, whose little brother plays for the Bruins, came back at Davis by mentioning all of UCLA’s great shooters, to which Davis quipped, “Who, the Ball kid?”.

Honestly, I’m more partial to Davis’ trash talk back at the McDonald’s All-American Game in 2011. But, I hope he’s right.
