Anthony Davis may be cashing in in more ways than one this week. Not only will the 19-year-old likely hear his name called first during Thursday's NBA Draft, Davis told CNBC that he trademarked the phrases "Fear The Brow" and "Raise the Brow" earlier this month.
In addition to his other-worldly rejections and excellent ability to protect the rim, Davis has become known for the hair occupying the space between his eyebrows.
"I don't want anyone to try to grow a unibrow because of me and then try to make money off of it," said the former Kentucky standout. "Me and my family decided to trademark it because it's very unique."
Davis joins a long line of star athletes who are trademarking their way to the bank:
Nationals rookie sensation Bryce Harper recently trademarked the phrase "clown question, bro." (That might mean Harry Reid owes Harper some dough.)
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III hasn't played a down in the NFL, but he already owns trademarks on his name, nicknames (RGIII and RG3) and slogans (Unbelievably Believable and Dream Big, Live Bigger).
Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin trademarked the phrase "Linsanity," however not without a bit of a struggle.
Speaking of trademark tussles, Jets quarterback Tim Tebow engaged in one of his own when he tried to trademark rights to the term "Tebowing."
Hopefully Davis won't encounter too many problems with his trademark. That is, unless Wally Moon has anything to say about it.
