Lakers’ LeBron James gives crash course on reading Anthony Davis’ unibrow
Though the chemistry between these first-year Los Angeles Lakers teammates are already undeniable, James took it up a notch after their Game 4 victory over the Denver Nuggets by taking us behind the scenes and describing how you can tell Davis’ mood by simply looking at his infamous unibrow.
“If his brow is really low, you know not to talk to him.” James told the media after the Lakers’ win (per Ben Golliver of The Washington Post). “If it’s higher, then he’s accepted the fact you’re allowed to come into his office and talk to him.”

Per James, Davis was not to be bothered on Wednesday as the Lakers’ prepared for Thursday’s pivotal Game 4. Davis was on the wrong side of the headlines after the Lakers’ dropped Game 3 against the Denver Nuggets. Though he managed to put up 27 big points, he had a lackluster night in the boards as he only grabbed a measly two rebounds – his playoff career low. Davis has been a beast on the boards the entire playoffs averaging 10.7 rebounds per game with 2.8 of those coming on the offensive end. On Tuesday, he grabbed 0 offensive boards.
Davis bounced back in Game 4, starting hot out of the gate. The 7-time All-Star scored 14 of his 34 points in the opening quarter and knocked down all of his six field goals. AD’s rebounding numbers were sub-par again on Thursday (five boards), but his Lakers teammates outrebounded Denver, 41-33, to give themselves 25 second-chance points, which were huge down the stretch.
