Now we know what Prince looked like all those years ago playing ball in junior high.
Star Tribune reporter Libor Jany got a picture of the icon and posted it to Twitter. What happened next was expected: Everyone lost their minds.
"Another Prince-related clip from the Strib archives, looking back at his hooping days at Bryant Junior High," Jany, who covers crime and justice in Minneapolis, wrote.

He also posted some quotes from Prince's coach Richard Robinson, who called the man "an excellent player" and said he was a great "ball handler, a good shooter."
Prince, now 56, is only 5-foot-2, but his coach said if he were taller, he would have started.
"I knew he wanted to be starting and felt he should be starting. He was unhappy and he expressed that many, many times," his coach added.
