This .gif might be the saddest thing you will see all day.
A few minutes before the Pistons and Pacers game was set to tip off, this anonymous Tayshaun Prince fan waited in excitement to see his favorite player come running out of the tunnel.
Here he was: a Pistons fan in Indianapolis, just wanting to watch his favorite player and team play.
Unaware of Prince being shipped to Memphis in a 3-team deal, our friend is confused when Prince is nowhere to be seen. He raises his hands in confusion and begins to search for answers on his phone.
Then he finds out the heartbreaking news he never wanted, or expected, to hear. Tayshaun Prince wasn’t walking out of that tunnel.
He rips off the jersey in disgust and disappointment; his night has been ruined. His favorite player was gone. For 10 and a-half years, Prince had been a part of his life. Each and every year, through championships and lottery appearances, Prince was there.
And now, just like that, it was all over.
