Wayne Selden, Jr. Throwback Pic With Former Jayhawk Paul Pierce

Updated: November 19, 2013

Selden with PierceYou gotta love an old school pic of a young Wayne Selden, Jr (now a starter at Kansas) and his boyhood idol Paul Pierce (a legend at Kansas as well as the Boston Celtics).   Selden posted this to his Instagram account recently with the caption:

“My momma just sent me this ! Haha Jayhawk fans might like this one.”

Of course we had to give it some love on our website.  Looking back at this, was there ever any doubt Selden would be a Jayhawk?

Selden, a native of Boston, has previously expressed his adoration for Pierce: “I would probably go with Paul Pierce,” Selden said when asked to name his favorite player. “He’s a traditional Celtic, been there forever. I haven’t met him recently, but I had pictures taken with him when I was 6 or 7 at a celebrity all-star game.”
