In case you missed it, Anthony Davis was tremendous on Jimmy Kimmel last night.
Kimmel wasn’t bad, either.
Davis, the presumptive No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft, told Kimmel he thought about shaving his unibrow when he got to campus, but decided to keep it as his signature.
“Yeah, you know what, you don’t need two eyebrows,” Kimmel fired back. “One is perfectly fine.”
Later, when Davis cracked that he might take over Kimmel’s job instead of going to the NBA, Kimmel said: “You’re welcome to it. We do have a two-eyebrow minimum here, though.”
Both made light of the “education” Davis will receive at Kentucky in less than a year on campus.
“Coach Cal is forcing us to go to class,” Davis said. “I don’t know why. We just won a national championship.”
When Kimmel asked, “How much education are you going to get in the next three months?,” Davis answered, “Not a lot.”
On what offers Calipari made to keep Davis on campus, Anthony said: “He said if I stay I can play point guard next year, so I’m really thinking about it.”
Then he added: “I started to make my own offer. I’ll just play all games. No practice, no class, nothing. Just all basketball games.”
