RGBNFP Of The Day: Robert “Tractor” Traylor

That’s ‘Random Gone But Not Forgotten Player’ of the Day for those playing at home. And for those who missed the news, former University of Michigan Star, Robert “Tractor” Traylor died today, presumably of a heart attack. I’d love to recap his NBA career, but I’m not sure he really had one. I remember he was part of a draft day trade. Who was involved with that? Hmm, I’d better check. Oh, that’s RIGHT…. the Dallas Mavericks traded him to Milwaukee for Dirk Nowitzki!!! What a devastating move that was for the Bucks.

Anyway, the point of this isn’t to talk about what a disappointment Traylor was in the NBA. The reality is Traylor was THE MAN in college. It should surprise no one just by looking at him that he was a beast. But, the guy had some electric dunks in his day. When the And1 Tour was on ESPN, that big dude named Cadillac or something like that always reminded me of Traylor. RIP Big Man….
