Entourage: Check out Leonardo DiCaprio and blonde Kevin Connolly at Lakers-Sonics in ’98

It’s Tuesday but we’re throwing it back Thursday-style because this picture of Leonardo DiCaprio and Kevin Connolly from a Western Conference semifinals game between the Lakers and Seattle Supersonics in 1998 cannot wait. Take a look:

The shot comes from the 7:20 mark when the camera panned to post-"Titanic" Leonardo for identification. His buddy Kevin Connolly (rocking the very ’90s blonde tips), probably better known as E from "Entourage," had spent the past few years starring in the TV show "Unhappily Ever After" back when Nikki Cox was a household name.

The Lakers won that series but lost to the Utah Jazz in the Western Conferene finals. And of course the Jazz ultimately fell to the Chicago Bulls, who completed their second three-peat that year.

All in all, things worked out pretty well for Shaq (won four rings, now falling off sets), Kobe (five rings, gearing up for one more season), Leo (still highly relevant multimillionaire who has dated more supermodels than Phil Jackson has rings) and Kevin Connolly, who is currently on a promotional tour for "Entourage" which hits theaters June 3.
