No one told this poor UK fan that Tayshaun was traded

Last night, we shared the news with you that Tayshaun Prince had been traded to the Memphis Grizzlies. Sadly, one of Tayshaun’s biggest fans didn’t get the memo. Watch above as he waits for Tayshaun to come through the tunnel for warm-ups, doesn’t see him, checks his phone, realizes what happened and takes off his Prince jersey to reveal a UK Final Four t-shirt.

    not sure what is funnier. The clip or #2 thinking he is #1

    What if the #2 poster was the same as the #1 poster. He could have just forgot to express how much he loved being first, since its been such a hot topic today.

    Aw, poor dude. That would really suck.

    3) Like he knew he was being filmed? Dude even had a backup plan for his jersey.

    Sad thing is he probably paid $150 for the jersey in the gift shop before the game.

    Hey kid, you might want to consider a move! I hear the cost of living is lower in Memphis than in Detroit, and the arena is nicer too!

    He looked like he may have been ready to propose to Tayshaun. Worked up his courage all day to ask him then Tayshaun gets himself traded. Bummer.

    I was also at that game last night (the family and I are on a mini vacation in Indy) and was similarly disappointed to hear Tayshaun had been traded AFTER we were in the arena. Got to see Brandon Knight at least.

    That is hilarious/awesome. Dudes a true UK fan and Tayshaun wasn’t traded until the day of the game, doesn’t make him, much less UK as a whole, look bad. I would actually say the opposite.

    Seriously though, going from Detroit to Memphis is like going from a fat man’s armpit to his taint.

    lol this is so fake…..look at the fuzzy screen near the tunnel….its being arranged to make it seem like he was waiting for him,,,,great photoshop work though.

    the most disturbing part is the dude is probably in his 30’s, clearly has a wedding ring on his hand, and is wearing another dude’s jersey! Time to put big boy pants on and grow up.

    19. Maybe the other way around. At least you have good BBQ in Memphis.

    if you read the sb nation post it seems they dont understand how diehard UK fans are for former players. They act like he’s just a really big fan of the pistons.

    Should have gone and bought a Brandon Knight jersey!

    At least memphis is a short hop to anywhere good. Detroit is hell on earth.

    #21 I think you’re jealous you can’t afford a jersey. What in your opinion is wrong with a grown fan wearing a jersey to a game? Haven’t been to any games have you?

    I am the same way as that guy, i only care about NBA teams when they have former UK players.



  35. Never
    3:57 pm January 31, 2013 Permalink

    That is why I will never by a jersey with player name on the back. I think you should get 50% back if the trade that player

    should i buy the nike platinum warm up jacket from last year, even though the championship years on the back are now outdated? Or should i just buy the regular white uk warm up jacket?

    It would be easier keeping track of former Louisville players.
