There’s not much worse than looking back on old photos of your youth. You’re likely wearing some out-of-style article of clothing or have an embarrassing haircut.

With that all in mind, I’m not sure who feels worse about a picture posted by Los Angeles Lakers power forward Pau Gasol which shows off the All-Star meeting with a young fan who just so happens to be current teammate, Kendall Marshall.

The photo which Gasol tweeted out shows the Spaniard looking quite youthful (sans the beard) as a member of the Memphis Grizzlies with 11-year-old fan Kendall Marshall posing for a picture.

Gasol said the photo was taken 11 years ago at All-Star Weekend in Atlanta where Gasol was taking part in the Rookie-Sophomore game.

I’m sure it has to be a bit surreal for both of them, considering Marshall is playing alongside a guy he obviously idolized as a young boy while Gasol is playing alongside a young boy who idolized him in his youth.
