RIP Former NBA player Robert 'Tractor' Traylor

Former NBA player Robert 'Tractor' Traylor found dead – This Just In - Blogs:

Traylor, 34, is presumed to have died of a heart attack, according to Bayamon Vaqueros. The star struggled due to his size - but also heart problems when he tried to make it in the NBA. He had a heart operation in 2005.
I seem to remember some kind of money-laundering scandal around him, but mostly I remember him being a fun player to watch at Michigan and with the Bucks. I was living out in Wisconsin when he was drafted and traded to Milwaukee; saw him in person when he played on that '99-'00 team with Ray Allen, Glenn 'Big Dog' Robinson, and Sam Cassell.
