If there's one thing we learned from Chappelle's Show, it's that Prince is a baller on the court. One of the most famous (best) skits (NSFW) of all time featured comedian Charlie Murphy telling a story about Prince and his crew tearing up the basketball court. 

Believe it or not, Prince might actually have skills.

Photos surfaced Tuesday of Prince's basketball days, and they did not disappoint. Minneapolis' Star Tribune went into its archives and found Prince's photos from when he played hoops at Bryant Junior High.

Not only does Prince look like a baller, but he was actually pretty good.
