Video: Cousins, Kidd-Gilchrist, Bledsoe, Davis ProCamp press conference

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Eighty percent of a pretty solid professional starting five was on the podium for a press conference at the John Calipari Basketball ProCamp on Wednesday.

DeMarcus Cousins, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Eric Bledsoe and Anthony Davis were in the Joe Craft Center to serve as counselors and took a few minutes to catch up with local reporters. They talked about their professional careers, returning to UK and the experience competing at Team USA minicamp earlier this month, but the most interesting exchange came when the topic of the Alumni Charity Game on Sept. 9 came up.

Early speculation about the game suggests the 2010 and 2012 teams will be pitted against one another. Only Kidd-Gilchrist would say he would play for sure, but the prospect of two recent great UK teams going head to head drew some friendly trash talk.

"We will," Cousins said when asked who would win.

"Everybody knows who's going to win the game, really," Kidd-Gilchrist said confidently.

"2010," Davis said, straight-faced. "I say 2010 will win it."

"Thank you, Anthony," Cousins said.

"Did you say 2010 will win?" said Bledsoe, thinking he misheard. "Glad you're honest."

"Nah, 2012," Davis said. "We're proven winners."

"Wow," Bledsoe said.

"Got nothing to say to that," Cousins said.

Check out complete video of the press conference below, with the Alumni Game talk coming at the 6:50 mark.

It's good to see these guys come back during the NBA offseason and participate in being a part of their university.
