Cory Brandt, the Tayshaun Prince fan who didn’t get the Pistons-Grizzlies trade memo two weeks ago, got to meet his hero yesterday in Memphis. The Commercial Appeal and the Grizzlies organization arranged a trip for Brandt and his family to go to Memphis for Sunday’s game and a surprise meeting with Tayshaun. Grandt was doing an interview before the game when Tayshaun snuck up behind him and surprised him with an autographed jersey.
Prince said, “When I saw the Kentucky shirt, it told me what kind of die-hard fan he is.”
Brandt was introduced to the crowd at halftime as the Grizzies’ newest fan.
