Tayshaun Prince Puts Ibaka and Friends on Poster, Twitter Loves It

Jesse DorseyFeatured ColumnistMay 15, 2013

It turns out there's still some lift left in Tayshaun Prince's old legs after all. In fact, quite a bit of lift, as it so happens.

In Wednesday night's Game 5 matchup, Marc Gasol came up with a block on Serge Ibaka on one end, Mike Conley hit Prince in stride, and Tayshaun took off from the dotted free-throw circle, dunking over most of the guys in white on the court.

With the initial shock of seeing Prince absolutely dismantle Serge Ibaka and three-fifths of the Thunder on the court, most of the people on Twitter just couldn't handle their excitement.

Tayshaun "Illegal German Knees" Prince.

"GOOD NIGHT, SWEET." - PRINCE

Prince didn't just throw down a dunk during some heated postseason action, he threw down a dunk in traffic with three defenders coming at him.

THREE DUDES. THREE.

Tayshaun Prince just dunked over a good 5 to 6 arms

Not only was Prince able to throw down what could possibly be the most emphatic dunk of his post-athletic life, but he also came up with a block earlier in the game that made this one of the most highlight-laden games from Prince in the past four years.

Between that block and that dunk, future generations will think Tayshaun Prince was a legend.
