Prince undoubtedly looked cool in one of the best celebrity throwback childhood photos we have seen in a long time! The man who discovered the photo and posted it on Twitter, is no other than Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter, Libor Jany. The photo is dated back to Prince’s middle school years when the 56-year-old singer was attending ‘Bryant Junior High School’ and is taken from the school’s yearbook. The funk & Rn’B star is shown posing in basketball uniform and afro hair.
According to his coach, Richard Robinson who spoke to the Star Tribune, Prince was a decent player but he had already shown his inclination in music:
‘Though music was his calling, Prince was an excellent player. But apparently, Prince wasn’t too pleased being the sixth or seventh man, and wanted to be on the starting lineup. He was unhappy and he expressed that many, many times.’, his coach insists.
Well, who knows what would have happened if Prince had followed a basketball career instead of music?
