NBA All Stars, they’re just like us! And just like every other hot-blooded teen in the early ’90s, Chris Paul — aka CP3 — had a crush on “Saved By the Bell’s” Kelly Kapowski.
It seems it’s a crush that’s stuck with him into his adulthood. The seven-time NBA All-Star geeked out on his Facebook page after receiving a signed photo of Tiffani Thiessen from back in her “Saved By the Bell” days as a birthday present.
“This is easily one of the best Bday gifts I’ve ever received in my 29yrs on this Earth!!! #KellyKapowski #My1stLove #WeWereTogether #SheJustDidntKnowIt #CuzImSavedByTheBell,” he writes.
For her part, Thiessen wrote to him: “Chris, Happy birthday, my dear.” She also retweeted Paul’s excited post. Now he just needs to pay it forward and give the same type of gift to one of his own celebrity fans.
