Sports: Photos of what the NBA’s biggest stars looked like when their careers started

null

In a league where so many players come and go, it can be fun to revisit just how far some of the NBA's best players have come.

With the NBA season about to begin, it's easy to forget how far some of the league's biggest stars have come.

LeBron James has dominated the NBA for 16 years now and is on his 16th team.

Stephen Curry, once an undersized, baby-faced guard, is now 30, a seasoned veteran for the Warriors.

James Harden once wasn't so…beard-y.
