The late brother of Eddie Murphy, Charlie Murphy, hilariously recounted a Prince basketball game on the iconic “Chappelle’s Show”.

Charlie Murphy’s Hollywood Stories segment always provided insight with humor for fans on what goes on in the world of our favorite celebrities that weren’t reported in the media. The Rick James story is remembered the most out of all the skits for its classic quotable, but the Prince basketball game story is also highly funny and memorable as well. In the story, Murphy thought that Prince and his crew weren’t athletic enough to play sports but in the end, he is proven wrong as the Murphy brothers got destroyed by a team full of men in blouses.

During an appearance on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Eddie Murphy gave credence to his brother’s story, but also added another note to it. He added that Prince actually gave his teammate some kicks that were three sizes too small.

“My brother was like, ‘Okay, it’s going to be shirts against blouses,’” Murphy explained. “The blouses won, they beat the s–– out of us. We had one dude on our squad Larry who could play and he didn’t have no shoes so Prince gave him some sneakers. And Prince wore like two, three sizes smaller than Larry, but Larry was so excited to have Prince’s sneakers on, he put those tiny sneakers on his feet and he couldn’t do his game right. So we lost. The one dude who could play, Prince’s shoes had him shutdown.”
