Stenhouse Jr. shows off LeBron-like form for #TBT

Roush Fenway Racing displays past hoops talent

Ricky Stenhouse Jr.'s love of sports is well-documented. The die-hard Ole Miss fan shares that love of sports on Twitter quite often.

For his latest Throwback Thursday tweet, Stenhouse Jr. showed off his early childhood hoops ability while also calling on NBA superstar LeBron James to make his free-agency decision between the Miami Heat and Cleveland Cavaliers. (Editor's note: James chose the Cavaliers on Friday)

Despite the basketball in his hand and a hoops game on TV in the background, there is a toy car close by the two-time NASCAR Nationwide Series champion.

Also of note -- the Mickey Mouse slippers. Could Stenhouse be subliminally telling us he wanted LeBron to stay in Florida with the Miami Heat?

On track this weekend, Stenhouse will be looking to throw back to his Nationwide days, when he had two top-five finishes in three starts at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. In the two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at the 1.058-mile venue last year, Stenhouse finished outside the top 20.
