Considering the players they are now, it’s often tough to forget that NBA stars like Dwight Howard and Joakim Noah were once the lanky, raw players that we see rising today.

With that being said, this photo is effective in serving as refresher on that fact. It shows Howard and Noah ten years ago at the 2004 EA Sports Roundball Classic, in the early days of their hardwood rivalry. Pretty cool.
