    It's hard to separate the man from the myth that is Prince. Lest there was any doubt about the R&B icon's basketball skills following Charlie Murphy's infamous skit on Chapelle's Show, these newspaper clips from Minnesota's Star Tribune should set the record straight.

    In newly resurfaced clips, his coach for JV coach Bryant Junior High School recalls him being an “excellent ball handler” and the “sixth or seventh man” on “probably the best ball team that ever came along at Central.”


    More importantly, there's this photo of Prince: young, impressionable, tight afro and vintage short shorts. It's exactly how I want to always remember him:

    From what I read Bryant is a junior high in Minneapolis. 31 looks like he was held back a couple of decades.

    That's one of the funniest skit I've ever seen on TV. Chapelle was great.
