The 2004 NBA championship will forever be the most memorable on-court moment of Tayshaun Prince's 10-plus seasons with the Detroit Pistons. But as much as anything, Prince will look back fondly on all the friendships he formed since the Pistons made him their first-round pick (23rd overall) out of Kentucky in the 2002 NBA Draft.
“What stands out is the different experiences, the different players I played with,” said Prince, who was traded Wednesday along with Austin Daye to the Memphis Grizzlies in a three-team deal that was struck shortly before a 98-79 loss to the Indiana Pacers.
