Awkward!: Tayshaun Prince Fan Doesn’t Realize Tayshawn Price Has Been Traded (Video)
You know what’s awkward? That moment when you realize your favorite player has been traded…and you’re wearing his jersey.
As you NBA fans probably already know, last night there was a big three-team trade between the Detroit Pistons, Memphis Grizzlies, and Toronto Raptors. The Raptors got Rudy Gay and Hamed Haddadi from Memphis for Jose Calderon and Ed Davis. The Grizzlies then sent Calderon to the Pistons for Austin Daye and Tayshaun Prince.
Unfortunately, nobody told the President of the unofficial Tayshaun Prince fan club. Because he was at the Pistons-Pacers game last night in Indianapolis, eagerly waiting to get a high five from his boy Tayshaun as he ran out of the tunnel. Finally, when it became clear that Tayshaun would not be taking the floor, the poor dude went to his phone to see what was up. That’s when he learned the news.
So how did he react? He immediately took off his #22 Tayshaun Prince Pistons jersey.
Take a look:
In case you were wondering, Tayshaun went to Kentucky. So that explains why this guy, who had a Kentucky t-shirt on underneath his Pistons jersey, was such a big fan.
Hopefully he doesn’t have any Tayshaun tattoos, too. Those will be much more painful to remove.
