Fan, unaware of trade, waits for a Prince who won't arrive

This is the heartbreaking public sadness of a fan discovering his favorite player has been traded.

y heart shatters into thousands of pieces watching this gif. Oh, the waiting. It's so painful. The nameless Tayshaun Prince fan waits and waits for the player who won't arrive. Of course, Prince was a part of the three-team deal sending Rudy Gay from Memphis to Toronto.

But this poor fan has no clue. And for goodness' sake, how many dedicated Tayshaun Prince fans are out there anyway? This was an away game for Detroit, by the way. He ventured in as a brave visiting fan to sit next to the tunnel, and his favorite player isn't even there. And, no less, he's cheering for the last remaining Piston from that 2004 championship team, as they take on the Pacers in what used to be a huge rivalry game.

The team trots out through the tunnel to warm up, but Prince is not among them. The fan is confused. He leans over the railing to peer into the catacombs of the arena. Perhaps Tayshaun's just getting some more stretching in first. Maybe he's chatting with someone. But no, he's not there either. "What's the deal?" the fan wonders, resigning to simply shrug with his hands. And so the fan hops on his phone and finds out the bad news.

He's so crushed, he takes off his Tayshaun Prince jersey in front of everyone.

Oh, we know the world of sports is a harsh one. It's a business, after all. But the constant reminders never seem to make it much easier on the heart. Alas.

I could have seen this before

I could have seen this before anyone here, but it didn't seem worthy of being posted in my opinion.

Me and Lebron Hairline are

Me and Lebron Hairline are cool. I didn't mean any offense by it. I just think this isn't really worthy of him posting it either.

Wow, I remember the first

Wow, I remember the first year I watched the playoffs was Prince's rookie season and I remember the commentators were talking about how the rookie from Kentucky was really coming along, and he actually averaged 9 ppg during the playoffs that season. Time really does fly, hard to believe that was 10 years ago, and even harder to believe that his block on Reggie was about 8-9 years ago.

This is quite hilarious...but

This is quite hilarious...but even more so is the chicks face staring around all awkward-like. (Especially in the video version)

Also since I just came back today and McDunkin's version was the first I seen, it's the only one that counts.

Cynthia and Mcdunkin coming

Cynthia and Mcdunkin coming back at the same time...because they are the same person. Mcdunkin can't get no girls so he made up his own lennay and jerks it to his thoughts of this girl. Either that or Cynthia is a loser who joined the sife for no other reason than to be online buddies with all the basketball nerds like lebron's hairline, siggy, or tounge our for 69. Also gifs are not funny and making fun of European baller's threads was funny the first time but everyone who had done it after the dalin qualis update is just copying for the approval of the losers on this site.

Also the most important thing I will say. Aamir is such a goody goody I swear if he stepped on a bug he would pray for it; he acts like the pure north ethically when he is just some HS loser who has never had any real world experiences.
