This morning, KSR would like to wish Anthony Davis a very happy birthday. The first pick in the 2012 NBA Draft turns 20 today. To celebrate, here are just a few memories of the man we call The Brow:
When knew you were a true Wildcat when…
…You openly mocked Louisville before you ever put on a Kentucky uniform. “You lost to Morehead State.”
You gave a new meaning to “Block Party,” starting with this epic rejection heard round the Bluegrass:
Farrah who? Your poster became the hottest bedroom decoration in the Bluegrass last season:
Some of us loved you so much we shaved tributes into our chest hair:
You gave us the term “auto-lob,” giving your own flair to the art of the dunk:
Wait, I need to see that in video, please:
You and your best friend, MKG, went 1-2 in the NBA Draft. I bet that was a fun day.
You made us proud and repped the BBN in the Summer Olympics…
And in the process, got some much-needed revenge.
Your first year in the league hasn’t been the easiest. You’ve battled some injuries, but now you’re back and over the past four games, have averaged 17 points and 12.3 rebounds, and blocked seven shots.
Happy birthday, Anthony.
