When you think of Prince, you don't think of an athlete or basketball player. You think of iconic, legendary, incredible, etc. performer.
But we're here to tell you that the "Purple Rain" crooner was, in fact, a basketball player...in junior high! And bonus—he was good! St. Paul Star Tribune reporter Libor Jany tweeted incredible throwback photos of the singer before he became the star we all know and love, and they're everything.
"Another Prince-related clip from the Strib archives, looking back at his hooping days at Bryant Junior High," Jany posted along with the photo.
Just look at his hair! Look at everybody's hair! Everything about it is all you could ever ask for and more. Even better, Jany tweeted another archival photo from the newspaper that features an article about the singer's athletic abilities.
