Kentucky Fan Crushed by Prince’s Trade

One Kentucky fan in attendance at Wednesday’s Pistons-Pacers game in Indianapolis arguably left Bankers Life Fieldhouse more disappointed than anyone else.

Situated by the tunnel out of which the Pistons would emerge, the fan — decked out in a No. 22 Tayshaun Prince jersey over a Kentucky shirt — waited patiently for his favorite player to take the floor. And waited ... and waited ... and waited.

When Prince didn’t walk through the tunnel, the fan started checking his phone and calling friends to find out the status of the former Kentucky star. When he discovered that Prince had been traded to the Grizzlies, he took a moment to collect his thoughts before removing his jersey, underneath which was a Kentucky “Final Four” t-shirt.

It’s clear that the fan will always support Tayshaun Prince and the Wildcats. The Pistons? Not so much.
