The 2015 NBA Finals are heating up!
The Golden State Warriors have been going shot-for-shot against the Cleveland Cavaliers – who took home the last two games – and of course, things will only get more intense when they play each other in Game 4 tonight.
For those who couldn’t care less about the game though, you can surely still appreciate the handsome men going at one another on the court. And even better is the fact that before they were all grown up with families and careers of their own, these ballers were cute kids working to make a name for themselves.
Since it’s #ThrowbackThursday, we gathered 26 adorable back-in-the-day photos of the Finals’ players. Check them out below and tune in tonight at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
