RIP “Tractor” Traylor

I am sad to report that former NBA player Robert “Tractor” Traylor was found dead today in him home in Puerto Rico. One of the true NBA “big men” in my book, Traylor put up a couple big seasons at Michigan before playing 7 years in the NBA.

The story HERE on ESPN states that the fans idolized the big man. I certainly remember times when I played pick-up bball and pretended I was the Tractor down low, plowing over everybody and dominating in the lane.

Just 34, Traylor was said to have died from a heart attack. Rest in peace Tractor, and god bless you and your family.
