Well, now we know what Chris Paul was watching on Saturday mornings as a kid.

The Clippers superstar may have missed the NBA Finals again this year but it appears that his mood has rebounded thanks to a blast-from-the-past birthday gift.

"This is easily one of the best Bday gifts I've ever received in my 29yrs on this Earth!!! ‪#‎KellyKapowski ‪#‎My1stLove ‪#‎WeWereTogether‪#‎SheJustDidntKnowIt ‪#‎CuzImSavedByTheBell," Paul, whose birthday was May 6, wrote on Facebook today along with a pic of what appears to be a mint-condition autographed photograph of a Saved by the Bell-era Tiffani Thiessen.


The photo features "Kelly Kapowski" rocking her meticulously sprayed big '80s hair, oversize earrings and a sexy neon-colored top.

And we know the autograph is brand-new, because she left out the "Amber," the actress having dropped her cutesy middle name after her tenure on Beverly Hills, 90210.

"Chris, Happy birthday my dear," the actress scrawled on the photo, signing it with a heart and her name.

Meanwhile, you can bet this is a mutual admiration society, considering Thiessen is a SoCal native and the Clippers are the beating heart of L.A. basketball these days.

We'll look for her and hubby Brady Smith to be sitting courtside next season!
