Jayson Tatum's 2012 request for a LeBron follow-back

Opening night on October 17th apparently wasn't the first time LeBron James and Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum have met. In a tweet he fired off at the age of fourteen back in 2012, Tatum requested James to follow him back, citing some of his family members to jog the superstar's memory. The tweet includes a photo of James and a young Tatum together. The date it was originally taken is unknown.

As of this date, LeBron James does not follow Jayson Tatum on Twitter.
