Do you think that Zeller is dead serious about putting a trademark on his receding hairline? After all, Anthony Davis did actually trademark his unibrow several years ago. Specifically, he trademarked the phrases “Fear The Brow” and “Raise The Brow.” One simply can’t use the phrases without Davis’ permission.
Is Zeller the next NBA player to trademark his body part? Who knows? But Zeller, the fourth overall pick by in 2013 has the capacity to move up the ranks as one of the best big men in the league.
So far, injuries have hampered the rise of the 25-year-old. His healthiest year was his rookie season where he played all 82 games and managed to be selected into the NBA All-Rookie Second Team.
In the next few seasons, however, Zeller would play between 30 to 70 games per season which is a combination of his dwindling role and spate of injuries. Particularly in 2017, he suffered torn medial meniscus. He played a mere 33 games in that season.
Last season, however, Zeller is slowly returning to his old and seemingly improved self. Through 49 games, he averaged 10.1 points (second career-best), 6.8 rebounds (career-best), and 2.1 assists.
Once Zeller gets his act right, then he has a chance to sit alongside The Beard and The Brow.
