Along with being probably the best all-around college basketball player in the nation, Anthony Davis also has a tremendous sense of humor. If he was bothered by people making fun of him, he could always just pluck between his eyebrows. Instead, Davis has allowed the unibrow to become a symbol of success for Kentucky’s run to the Final Four. In fact, he enjoys the attention his facial hair (right?) has received.
“I just embrace it,” Davis said Thursday according to The Dagger. “The fans enjoy it and the signs are everywhere now. They’ve been making everything out of it. I’ve even seen a baby with a unibrow on Twitter. So these fans are nuts, but I love it.”
Fans have come up with some fantastically creative — and disturbing — ways to pay tribute to the brow. Heck, even Davis’ own mother has gotten in on the act. Throughout the tournament, Davis has encountered some memorable experiences thanks to the unibrow. One day in Atlanta, he was even approached by a young girl in the team’s hotel.
“She got on her knees and bowed down to me like I was a king and said, ‘Bow to the Brow.’ She was like 5 or 6,” Davis said. “I just started laughing.”
The way Davis has embraced the heckling is an inspiration to children everywhere. If you’re getting made fun of for the way you look, just become nasty at basketball and lead your team to a Final Four. If you do that, people learn to embrace your imperfections.Google+
