Tayshaun Prince (MIN) – “Slenderman”

(Chris Humphreys/USA TODAY Sports)


Forward: 6’9, 215 lbs; 14th year, Kentucky | Career: 11.8 points/game, 4.5 rebounds/game, 2.5 assists/game, 46% FG

The fifth starter on Detroit’s improbable championship squad (2004), Tayshaun Prince is a veteran, lefty forward who has mastered the art of being a “glue guy”; still kicking in his 14th year in the Association – continues to knock down elbow Js and play justtt a little defense; RAZOR sharp elbows – if Prince even slightly connects, you better have Ferdie Pacheco on standby; a solid slasher and outside threat, Prince is the perfect veteran mentor for any young wing player; how much does he have left in the tank?
