Anthony Davis on the unibrow: “Nobody rocks it like me”

Anthony Davis stopped by SportsCenter this morning to promote the new Panini collectibles and talk about his career, specifically the brow. He called his unibrow look a “trend,” adding “most people can’t pull it off.” He did, however, agree that LeBron and Kobe could pull off a unibrow because they don’t care what people think. “But nobody rocks it like me,” he said.

Davis also talked about what it was like to play with Team USA in the Olympics and what he learned from the experience. Being professional off the court and dinner attire was one lesson he learned while hanging out with the NBA’s biggest stars: “Don’t throw on shorts and a t-shirt for dinner. Throw on something casual; something nice.”

And then he hit us with this heartbreaking comment…

“Winning a title at Kentucky was great,” he said. “But there’s nothing like winning a gold medal.”

I guess we can respect that.

Watch Davis on SportsCenter.

    Why is that a heartbreaking comment? In theory, winning an NCAA championship means you’re the best basketball team at a DI college/university in the US. But winning a gold medal, again, in theory, means you’re the best team in the *world*.

    I’m glad that he has a lot of respect for our country, but the best basketball in world is played in the US. UK’s team from last year could have beat a lot of the teams they played. I feel like winning a single eliminitation tournament against the best basketball players at his age in the world is much harder than dunking on Tunisia. He was the reaosn we won, the US would have won with or without the brow.

    I feel an NBA championship is much more of an accomplishment than a Gold Medal

    But hey what do I know I didn’t do it. The honor of representing your country and pulling it off cannot be underestimated.

    well…how quickly we lose the feelin’! Agree with you on this one Drew.

    Davis was an integral part (and probably the main reason) of the UK National Championship. He was a complete after-thought in the London Olympics. Amazing what a paycheck will do. lol

    Wish him the best though.

    He doesn’t even know what he’s saying. He’s just saying something he hears all the time about gold medals and because he got to hang around with all those guys and he is still star struck. As he ages he will realize how very special what he did at UK was and he will hold that college experience and tournament run very dear to him. He will realize that he didn’t have much to do with the Olympic win, but that he had everything to do with the national championship.

    You guys are being myopic.

    Team USA basketball gold medalists – The entire 1992 Dream Team, Lebron, Kobe, Jerry West, The big O, Shaq, KG, and so on.

    UK National Champions – MKG, TJ, Doron, Darius, Ron Mercer, Antoine Walker, Turner, Sheppard, Mills, Tony Delk, Macy, Robey, Givens, and the Rupp era players.

    It’s an honor to be apart of either list, but if you’re a singular talent like Davis, you’re going to prefer the company of the games all-time greats over collegiate allocades.
