Anthony Davis: The unibrow is here to stay (Video)

Kentucky star and AP Player of the Year Anthony Davis appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday night, and almost right off the bat, the unibrow was the topic of discussion. And with Davis most likely on the cusp of becoming an NBA multimillionaire, you would think he’d finally hit up a waxing salon and take care of his Bert Special. Wrong. Davis told Kimmel the unibrow isn’t going anywhere.

“It’s me. It’s my brand, I like the way it is. … That’s my plan. Keep it forever. No need to cut it.”

“Yeah, you don’t need two eyebrows. One is perfectly fine,” Kimmel quipped.

“I’m trying to start a new trend,” Davis replied.

Davis previously said he enjoyed all the attention his forehead mustache got during the year, and now he’s saying it’s a part of who he is and here to stay. I say good for him for not giving into society’s vain and shallow standards. When he gets to the league he should make it part of his logo. MJ has the jumpman, LeBron’s is the crown, and Davis’ could be a unibrow. Somebody needs to take advantage of the untapped unibrow market. And then he can embroider the logo into the seats of his future white-on-white Bentley.

Anthony Davis is embracing all of the unibrow attention

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.

John Calipari after Anthony Davis’ knee injury: ‘Get up mama’s boy’

Kentucky forward Anthony Davis banged knees with Baylor’s Perry Jones during the second half of the NCAA tournament game between the teams Sunday. Davis, who is considered to be the top player in the country, went down in pain and limped to his team’s bench after the collision. Though he was in pain, he didn’t miss much time. Maybe it’s because of the ribbing he received from his coach.

“No, the guys told me [the collision] was knee-to-knee. And I said ‘Get up mama’s boy, you’re fine. Come on, let’s go,'” John Calipari told CBS after the game.

Davis didn’t like being the butt of the joke, so he told CBS the knee injury really hurt.

“When you get hit knee-to-knee, it really shows a lot of pain. It really hurted but I went to the bench, and my team told me ‘We need you.’ Coach Cal told me ‘You’ll be fine, you’ll be fine.’ And he kissed me on the forehead, and I feel a lot better,” Davis said.

I thought Calipari calling Davis “mama’s boy” was pretty funny, but what seems to be gaining the most attention is Davis’ poor grammar. Some people defended him and thought he said “I really hurt it,” but most people heard “It really hurted.” I listened to the comment about 10 times and heard “hurted” each time, though he’s so muffled it’s hard to tell what he’s saying. If Davis doesn’t have a grammatical problem, then he definitely needs to work on his enunciation. He’ll likely be a top player at the next level so he might as well begin improving on his interviewing skills.

Kentucky fan shaves Anthony Davis unibrow into his chest (Picture)

We already know Anthony Davis‘ mother is down with her son’s unibrow, so now we know what his male relatives should be doing. That chest hair unibrow may be nasty, but we give the fan an A+ for his creativity. Well done, sir.

Here’s what the real Anthony Davis unibrow looks like in case you haven’t seen it.

Anthony Davis’ mom wears a unibrow mask (Picture)

Now that’s what I call a proud mama. The Anthony Davis unibrow has become a symbol of success for the 2011-2012 Kentucky Wildcats, who are a team that many experts believe will cut down the nets at the beginning of April. On Sunday during the SEC Conference championship, Davis’ mother decided to get in on the fun by busting out the unibrow mask to rag on support her son. Vanderbilt was able to pull off a major upset and win the SEC title, so Mrs. Davis may want to put the mask away for the NCAA Tournament.

Kentucky Freshman Anthony Davis Has a Mean Unibrow (Picture)

Kentucky freshman forward Anthony Davis is already proving he may be one of the best young players in the country. The 6’11” youngster from Chicago is shooting 76% through two games, and averaging 18.5 points, 8 rebounds, and 5.5 blocks. Unfortunately it’s not his stellar play that will get people talking, but rather the batwing above his eyes.

Yes, Anthony Davis is one of the few athletes in college basketball to proudly wear a full on unibrow. We don’t know if he’s been doing it his whole life, if it’s a fashion statement, or if it’s the product of a bet. All we know is that it’s distinguishing. And if that’s the way Davis wants to keep his eyebrows, he should wear it proudly.

But before you get too carried away, I caution you to recall Binghampton’s Tiki Mayben, whose unibrow put Davis’ to shame.
