Robert Traylor Dies In Puerto Rico

Sad to say, this was not hard to imagine: Robert "Tractor" Traylor has been found dead in Puerto Rico, apparently of a massive heart attack. A guy who struggled constantly with his weight, Traylor  was nonetheless a force on the court.  We'll never forget watching him, at the end of the Duke-Michigan game in Cameron, rolling to the basket for the game winner - and Duke players getting the hell out of the way.  We hated seeing that, hated losing that way, but it was undeniably funny to see the whole lane just clear out like that.
