I will always remember Prince for his constant shade throwing, the time he wrote slave on his face, the numerous rumors about his sexcapades, his cover of Radiohead’s “Creep,” the time he outswagged Michael and James, the mystery and the allure that was his musical career, and so much more.
I remember coming across this video of Toure talking about the time he played basketball with Prince. Toure emailed him some questions for a piece he was working on and in the last one he asked Prince when he would play basketball with him to which Prince replied: “Anytime.” Toure goes on for about 10 minutes about how Prince has a hoop at Paisley Park and always had a pair Nike Air Force 1s on deck. This interview confirmed Charlie Murphy's story for me and I’ll always regret not being able to talk in depth with Prince about his love for basketball. —Angel Diaz, Staff Writer
