Dale Earnhardt Jr. ‘a baller’ when it comes to Throwback Thursday

Dale Earnhardt Jr. (No. 13) posted this picture of his JV basketball days for this week's Throwback Thursday on Twitter.

While he may be fairly new to Twitter, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has quickly embraced Throwback Thursday and is providing some great shots from back in the day. 

This week, Dale Jr. took it back to his military academy days with a rare glimpse at his short basketball career — and uniform. 

In the weeks since joining the social media site, the relative Twitter newbie has shared old pictures of his famous father, his grandparents, and much more each Thursday.
