Prince Interview Confirms The Charlie Murphy Basketball Story Was True










Charlie Murphy is known for the best flash black story about Prince that he expressed during a skit on the David Chappelle Show. Charlie described in detail losing a game of basketball while playing Prince. No one believed it, until it recently surfaced that Prince was actually a great basketball player in high school.
The lesson Charlie Murphy learned that night, to never judge a book by its cover, has never been more apt. Prince might have been only 5-foot-2 and wearing clothes that looked straight out of Liza Minnelli's Goodwill donation bag, but dude could ball. 
Murphy didn't make this up, and Prince actually confrimed the story was completely true. During a radio interview Prince stated he schooled Murphy on the court not because he's that good, but Murphy's "just so bad." 
Prince was being modest. Other accounts of his on-court ability tell the same story that Murphy did. The writer Touré, played Prince one on one while writing the book I Would Die 4 U: Why Prince Became an Icon. His impression? "He moved like a player and played like one of those darting little guys you have to keep your eye on every second."
