Trash talk in the NBA has been going on ever since the association’s existence. Typically, you’ll see veteran guys giving the newcomers a hard time.
However, 22-year-old Anthony Davis already feels established enough to give oppositions a piece of his mind, even if the age differential is only 19 months.
(Davis) was trying to post me and I was using all of my strength, I didn’t let him. He turns around, shoots off balance and scores. As we were running side-by-side, he says to me: “You can’t guard me young fella!” As we were running together towards the Bucks’ offense, I process it and think about it. Dude, what are you talking about? You’re only a year older than me!
Age gap probably doesn’t matter when you’re Anthony Davis.
