Aw, what the hell. RIP.

Dallas drafted him 6th & traded him to Milwaukee for the rights to....Dirk Nowtizki and Pat Garrity. Garrity was later traded to Phoenix for backup PG Steve Nash.

Don Nelson turned Tractor Traylor & Pat Garrity into Dirk Nowitzki & Steve Nash. Pretty incredible.

Yup. One of the most lopsided trades in NBA history.
Absolutely loved Tractor at Michigan. He was such a character.

RIP
Damn....

RIP.

RIP

''Massive heart attack.''
RIP He was a beast down on the block at Michigan.

Interesting cause everyone knew Mavericks wanted Dirk. Nelson figured he would fall and wanted to milk a couple extra picks from the bucks.

Bucks did make a worse trade in 1975, Sending Kareem to the Lakers for Elmore Smith, Brian Winters, Dave Meyers and Junior Bridgeman

At least Elmore Smith a great shotblocker and a very good rebounder before he got hurt. And Kareem wanted out of Milwaukee, so their hand was kinda forced.
=( RIP
I loved that clip where when he was at Michigan and his shorts kept falling down trying to get that put back

RIP he was cool
when i hear "Tractor" Traylor, i think of Keith Traylor the DL. which wouldve made more sense because hes like 350 lbs.
