It’s Never Easy Being A Fan

By Jeff Case

Whether you’re a fan of the Lakers, Heat, Bobcats, Celtics, Wizards … you name it, your team will almost always find a way to toy with your emotions, be it with wins and losses, Draft moves or trades. That last one — trades — can hit you pretty hard, especially if you’re a fan of a particular player more than a team.

Such an example was on display last night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis for the Pistons-Pacers tilt. Tayshaun Prince, the last remaning link to Detroit’s championship team from 2004, was traded to Memphis as part of a three-team deal on Wednesday and, as such, didn’t suit up for the game in Indy. Yet, this poor guy — check the jersey, obviously a Prince fan — waits and waits as the Pistons come out to greet his hero.

What ensues is just sad, as we see in GIF form below:

He’s obviously a Kentucky fan, too (given the UK shirt on under the Prince jersey) and maybe he’s a big fan of the Prince-era Kentucky teams. If so, good news! The Brooklyn Nets, who feature UK alum Keith Bogans, come to Indiana on Feb. 11. That’s just enough time to buy a new jersey, too.

    no wonder the Heat have won 22 in a row because you have to beat them and the refs. I mean its so bad the announcers don’t replay the fouls because there is no foul!

  4. This is a topic that is close to my heart… Thank you!
    Exactly where are your contact details though?
