The Brow.

It's an oddly intimidating nickname, and one that only one NBA star could take on—Anthony Davis.

The greatest thing about the nickname of the former University of Kentucky star and current New Orleans Pelicans paint protecter is that he truly and deeply embraces it.

Davis has refused to shave his ridiculous unibrow for years, electing instead to make it part of his persona.

Davis filed trademark requests for the phrases "Fear the Brow" and "Raise the Brow," and his unibrow even starred in a truly terrifying commercial for Boost Mobile.

It's a love story if there ever was one, making "The Unibrow" an even better nickname.

Davis recently made a video which showed him shaving his brow, sending us loyalists into a panic.

Luckily, it was nothing more than an April Fool's publicity stunt.

Long live The Brow.
