Anthony Davis, the likely No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft to be held Thursday, filed a trademark for multiple phrases related to his physical feature getting the most attention -- a unibrow.

Davis told CNBC that trademarks were filed for "Fear the Brow," a popular saying during Kentucky's national championship run, and "Raise the Brow."

The trademarks applications aren't unheard of for incoming professional athletes.

Before he was drafted by the Washington Redskins, Heisman Trophy-winning Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin applied for trademark protection on the phrase "Unbelievably Believable" -- a reference to the phrase he used in his Heisman acceptance speech -- as well as "RGIII" and "RG3."

“I don’t want anyone to try to grow a unibrow because of me and then try to make money off of it,” Davis told CNBC. “Me and my family decided to trademark it because it’s very unique.” With this business opportunity in place, you better believe that the unibrow is going nowhere. In April, AD said that people would frequently tell him to cut it, but he said he won’t because “everyone’s talking about it.”

Well at least that confirms he actually knew he had one.

I can hardly wait until he changes his name to first name Uni, last name Brow.

He looks like an idiot. Unibrows were never cool and they never will be.

Seriously? I'm embarrassed for him. Great support group you have there, Mr. Davis.
