Jaylen Brown came closer to beating A.J. Bouye than the Patriots did.

The Celtics forward, considered one of the NBA's rising stars, raced his cousin, the Jaguars Pro Bowl cornerback, in a video posted to Twitter on Monday.

Though it's unclear when the video was filmed -- presumably during the summer -- what's indisputable is that Brown actually holds his own against the 6-foot, 191-pounder. They race twice, with Bouye taunting the 6-foot-7 forward in the first one by looking back, before beating Brown by half a step in the rematch.

Agility drills are a different story, with Bouye's lateral quickness off-the-charts in a manner befitting an NFL standout whose team just dispatched the Pats, 31-20, on Sunday.

In any event, watch for yourself and enjoy their familial trash talk. Brown turns 22 next month and Bouye just turned 27.
