Birthday brownies are in order, because Kentucky legend Anthony Davis officially turns 27 years old today!
While the BBN is sending love to The Brow on his birthday, he’s also getting shoutouts from plenty of his current teammates. LeBron James even serenaded Davis in their team’s locker room, and James posted the hilarious video on his Instagram story.

Coach John Calipari also wished his former player a happy birthday on Twitter, calling Davis a difference maker and a generational player.
Hard to disagree there:
.@AntDavis23 turns 27 today! Won a ‘ship in 2012. Has an Olympic gold medal. My guess is another ‘ship is in his future!
BTW, why isn’t he in the conversation for MVP? He should be! Difference maker and a generational player.

On the final day in his 26th year, Davis scored 26 points on 9-19 shooting (4-8 from deep), grabbed eight rebounds and recorded one block against the Brooklyn Nets. Unfortunately for AD, he missed his game-winning, three pointer attempt at the buzzer, and the Nets beat the Lakers, 104-102.
