Just saw on foxnews.com that he died, sad news:

"It's all about winning for me, and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that," he said. "But at the same time I've given myself options to this point, and like I said before, me and my team, we have a game plan that we're going to execute, and we'll see what we get."

"We had a great time together."

The dude was always nimble for a guy with such a large frame. Could also throw it down like a beast.

I guess we know the Cavs next statue honoree.

Former Cav and Michigan player Tractor Traylor was found dead in his home. Just saw it on CNN. Supposedly a heart attack did him in.

As if Mavs fans weren't happy enough about that draft-day trade. :hide:

RIP Tractor.

Did Ed Martin's estate pay for the casket?
