Generally, Craigslist job listings include crappy telemarketing gigs, photo shoot calls, or part-time sign-spinning positions, but not today. This morning, Anthony Davis — you know, the NBA All-Star — put an ad for a personal assistant on New Orleans’ Craigslist site.
In the listing, Anthony says he’s looking for someone to help him out so he can focus on the season. Job duties include dry cleaning runs, meeting with fans and doing media interviews, and the ability to move around town and keep a low-profile. Anthony would prefer that his applicants be 6’5″ or taller and good dressers. “Some ball skills” are preferred but not required, and, hilariously, a “unibrow or heavy eyebrows” are a plus. “Please send photos,” Anthony asks.

When I first saw the listing, I thought it was a joke, and then I saw the link on Anthony’s official Facebook page:

I’m not pushing my coworker out the door by any means, but it sounds like Anthony’s describing Drew Franklin.
Even though the Facebook post made the ad look legit, Anthony Davis’ mom talked to Jennifer Palumbo to set things straight.
I just talked to Anthony Davis' mom. She says @AntDavis23 is NOT looking for an assistant and did not post the ad. She calls it "craziness."
