Video: Hawks’ Taurean Prince surprises mom with new car

Atlanta Hawks small forward Taurean Prince bought his mother a new car for her birthday and shared the story on Instagram. 

Since he was 13, Prince wanted to do something special for his mother and decided the time was on her birthday in October. 

“HAPPY BDAY MAMA!!!! Been wanting to accomplish this goal for some time now man, what better day than now......words can’t explain the feeling told mama the only thing she gotta worry about now is putting gas in it,” Prince wrote on Instagram Saturday.

Prince shared his plan and how he surprised his mother with Fox Sports before Wednesday’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

"That's been in the works since I was about 13, I think like around the eighth grade. ... Basketball seemed to be the journey that God blessed me with and I was able and fortunate enough to surprise her," Prince said.
