You may recall he played for Michigan and the NBA(Hornets). http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2011/5/11/2165657/robert-traylor-dead-puerto-rico Promote this thread!

Sad to see someone go that young, but at least it was natural causes.

I actually saw him shatter a backboard in a game. It's a shame his NBA career didn't pan out as he had hoped. You'll be missed, Tractor.

Wikipedia says he was drafted by Dallas and traded to Milwaukee for the rights to Dirk Nowitzki. How foolish that trade looks in retrospect.

How does a 34-year-old man die from natural causes?

Given that he was rehabbing from an injury and his weight (and hoping that pharmaceuticals had nothing to do with it) it was probably heat related. "Don't Blame CANADA, Blame Yourselves!"

Originally posted by ekedolphin How does a 34-year-old man die from natural causes? He had aorta surgery in 2005. A man his size with his history having a heart attack would be considered natural. To MUTigermask - Traylor followed the Fab 5, but he wasn't part of that group. RIP "I'm on my time with everyone." - Kurt Cobain
Given how his play has deteriorated over the second half of the year and (hopefully) hit rock bottom in the playoffs, I'm thinking the timing of this announcement is pretty poor. Maybe he was high when he said it.
