Give this dad an A+ for creativity. The basketball fan is using professional-grade signs to motivate his son Thomas to up his academic game.

USA Today photographer Jeremy Brevard captured this image at the Cavaliers-Hornets game in Charlotte on Friday night.

Note the quality of the sign: This dad is putting thought, planning and money into his tough love tactics.

Maybe Thomas didn't get the message, because the same sports fan father brought another sign to another NBA game on Saturday.
