Famously known as “The Brow” for his signature Unibrow, Anthony Davis is one of the exceptional players, who not only became an Olympian early on his professional career but who is also an inspirational figure with his philanthropic attitude. What’s more astonishing is, he was well appreciated for his brows and he had even trademarked the phrases “Fear the Brow” and “Raise the Brow.” He was one of the teammates with the deceased player Kobe Bryant on the Olympic Games in 2012.
“When people talk about the greatest ever, I want to be in that conversation. I’m nowhere close to it. But it’s where I’m going.”
These quotes by the NBA star definitely and adequately summarize his passion for basketball and justify his professional attitude and unique flair. At present, he plays for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. He plays forward and center positions.
