Chris Paul Receives the Best Birthday Present Ever

And you’re lying if you say that your 13-year-old self doesn’t agree.

Clippers point guard Chris Paul posted a photo to Instagram of a signed picture of Tiffani Amber Thiessen, who played everyone’s crush, Kelly Kapowski, on the hit show “Saved By the Bell.” Next to the picture Paul wrote:

“This is easily one of the best Bday gifts I’ve ever received in my 29yrs on this Earth!!! #KellyKapowski #My1stLove #WeWereTogether #SheJustDidntKnowIt #CuzImSavedByTheBell

Better late than never. It’s nice to know I wasn’t the only one pining away in my room for a chance to show Kelly who I really was. I wonder if CP3 thought Zack was a big jerk, too. #hedidntdeserveher

In other, more sobering news, Amber Thiessen turned 40-years-old in January.
