 LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Anthony Davis' unibrow is nothing new to people in Kentucky. University of Kentucky basketball fans were the first to "brow down."

But with Davis gaining NBA popularity and now becoming one of the central of the USA basketball team, he's getting wider recognition.

His trademark (and we do mean trademark, he got the unibrow and associated phrases and slogans legally trademarked) eyebrows grace plush toys and posters in New Orleans, and when attending a Team USA exhibition in Washington D.C. last month, President Barack Obama even took note of Davis' eyebrow.

His unibrow has its own commercial, in a "speaking" role in a spot for Boost Mobile.

It gave birth to a Tumblr. "Shaving Anthony Davis." Its owner says, "If Anthony Davis won't shave his unibrow, I will shave it for him. With Photoshop."

CBS This Morning today took an in-depth look not only at Davis' signature look, but used it as a jumping off point in eyebrow fashion, even launching into an investigation of how eyebrows are important in face recognition technology.

Which just goes to show, Anthony Davis is not only the best basketball player in the room most often, but one of the smartest.
