If you're in the San Antonio area over the next few days, keep your eyes peeled for a unique site. It's a 6'10" really skinny guy, will most likely be wearing Nike gear and might even have a gold medal around his neck. Need another tip? Fine, he'll have one eye brow. That's right kids, the number one pick himself, Anthony Davis is in the Alamo City according to his very own Twitter page.
What's good to eat in San Antonio?— Anthony Davis (@AntDavis23) September 9, 2012
For the record, I said Rosario's in part because I assumed he was staying downtown. Anyways, what on earth is "Unibrow" doing in the Alamo City? Assuming there isn't some Team USA event in San Antonio this week (from what I can tell there isn't, but the USA Basketball website is terrible), my first and most logical guess was that Hornets head coach Monty Williams and his own personal Obi-Won Kenobi, Gregg Popovich, organized some work out sessions with Davis and Tim Duncan kind of like how Duncan worked out with Roy Hibbert, Nene and others last fall. This theory was more or less confirmed when Hornets point guard Greivis Vasquez tweeted he was in San Antonio for a week of hard work. But then, the plot thickened. Observe!
What the hell is happening in San Antonio? RT @antdavis23: @jharden13 you coming to San Antonio bro?— Trevor Zickgraf (@yowhatupT) September 10, 2012
*James Harden in the Alamo City too? What kind of odd facial hair convention is going on in San Antonio this week? Could Harden also be coming in for a week of hard work? Is the American Manu Ginobili going to learn how to be even more like Manu 1.0? Maybe. But here are some other possibilities:
*Editor's Note: Davis removed the tweet to Harden a few hours after he sent it out, so we used Trevor's retweet instead.
1. Spurs have acquired Davis, Vasquez and Harden for Matt Bonner, Tiago Splitter, Gary Neal and Nando De Colo. Fact No.1: This works in ESPN's Trade Machine. Fact No. 2: Pop and R.C. Buford would literally have to be Jedis in order to pull off this mind trick of a deal.
2. Harden and Davis are teaming up to be the next great Lucha Libre USA tag team. Wouldn't Harden's beard and Davis' eyebrow make them an amazing tag team. Harden could groom his beard in to a giant version of Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart and Davis could wear a lucha libre mask with the eyebrow section cut out. Merchandise gold.
3. Harden and Davis are both taking a college course before the season starts and need to visit all of San Antonio's missions and write a report before they can get credit for the class. I recommend a Rainbow Raspa from the vendor outside the Alamo.
4. All three guys are roller coaster enthusiasts and will be visiting Sea World and Fiesta Texas. Has anyone told them the Rattler is shut down? Little known fact: Anthony Davis, roller coaster enthusiasts that he is, developed his unibrow from all the riding. High velocity winds just smushed his two eye brows in to one.
Those are my guesses as to why they're here. Remember to be on your best behavior if you see them, San Antonio. Or kidnap them like Daniel Stern and Dan Akroyd in Celtic Pride. Either way, don't let them leave. Spurs could use a shot blocker, another slasher and a back up point guard.

@24writer @projectspurs Davis,harden,vasquez working out with duncan& others or maybe a lil scrimmage!??
Still dreaming impossible dream you guys? Davis isn't going to come here, no BIG TIME PLAYER will ever come here.
Could this trade seriously happen(sorry if i missed any sarcasm)? I mean, holy Hindu cows! If it somehow happened, I'd probably be pissing myself out of immense bliss all season long (sorry for the gross imagery). I mean, Duncan/Davis/Leonard/Harden/Parker with Capt.Jack, Mills, Vazquez, Diaw, Green, and the rest of the gang putting in quality minutes from the bench would me pretty magical. Probably too magical to ever happen though. Also, wouldn't Harden and Davis's contracts end up putting us over the luxury threshold? And lastly, why would New Orleans ever part with their lottery prize?
@ryankxlu 66 beat me to it. Yeah, huge amount of sarcasm there. Neither team is going to let either player go unless they get lending James or something, and even then I'd question it for Davis...
@ryankxlu definite sarcasm
hope we can get those guys that would really charge up our team spurs make it happen yall really didnt do nothing on offseason so GO SPURS GO
Ok, here's what we do. We dye Davis's hair red, and connect Bonner's eyebrows and there's that swap. With Harden all we have to do is get one of those Harden beards they sell to the OKC fans and glue it on Neal. I know it's hereasy, but we have to shave Harden's beard. It might be kinda scary, who knows what will be found in there... Anyway, none will be the wiser, and if anyone does come poking around we'll just feed them mexican food and they won't want to leave. If they are still persistent, we'll just drown them in the riverwalk!
@spursfan80 make it happen..
@Spursfan66 "calling all spurs fans, be on the look out for the unibrow and the beard. Apprehension is of vital importance. Please do not harm our captives as they will be needed this season. Neither are considered dangerous, unless armed with a basketbapll. Once they are in custody, Pop and Buford have a holding cell at the top of the tower of Americas. Just tell the guards the Coyote sent you."
