HoopsHype Troy Hudson rumors
After being away from the NBA since 2008, former Timberwolves guard Troy Hudson was trying to make a comeback by playing in the NBA's D-League for the Sioux Falls Skyforce. Things were going relatively well as Hudson averaged 11 points through the team's first 12 games before foot and hip injuries kept him out for a month. He returned to play two games, but then told the team he was finished. Sioux Falls coach Joel Abelson said that Hudson "texted me that he thinks he can still play and wants to still play, but he just wasn’t going to play anymore, He felt his body couldn’t do it.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune
Hudson -- who played for the Wolves from 2002-07 and averaged 23.5 points in a memorable six-game playoff series in 2003 against the Lakers -- has gone back to his roots with the Sioux Falls Skyforce. He is playing with the Wolves' D-League affiliate -- a comeback in a sense, but one that's "about me having fun this go-round," he said via the podcast. We also learned that Hudson became a born-again Christian since last playing in the NBA four years ago. Minneapolis Star-Tribune
Troy Hudson is a music mogul. Well, that's the plan, anyway. Hudson is a former NBA player. He had a nice career -- 11 years with five teams, including 50 Tyson's hometown Timberwolves. Afterward, Hudson started a record company. He heard of the kid with the YouTube views, saw him, called him, met him, signed him. 50 Tyson's first album, "50 Tyson Presents The Rhythm of Autism Vol. 1," was recently released to coincide with National Autism Awareness Month.
