Longtime Clippers play-by-play announcer Ralph Lawler and analyst Don MacLean were calling the game for Fox Sports Prime Ticket when they began to discuss the fact that Nowitzki, a 14-time All-Star widely considered the greatest European player in NBA history, arrived in Dallas via a 1998 draft-day trade that sent Robert “Tractor” Traylor to the Milwaukee Bucks. “Who’s he playing for now?” Lawler asked of Traylor. “The, uh, Detroit YMCA over-40 league,” McLean responded, to Lawler’s audible amusement.
Later in the game, the pair addressed their comments, with Lawler saying, “I was wondering what Robert ‘Tractor’ Traylor was doing today — totally slipping my mind, and I guess Don’s mind, that he passed away a couple of years ago. So, may he rest in peace, and our apologies.” “Yeah, apologies,” said McLean. “I didn’t realize that.”
For almost two hours, Lenora Traylor was inconsolable. Her son, Robert, was laid to rest this afternoon after an emotional service at the Greater New Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church. One of Detroit’s basketball sons died May 11 of an apparent heart attack in Puerto Rico. He was 34. Lenora Traylor moaned, cried and reached out to the casket as a list of local basketball players and dignitaries came to pay their respects to the former Murray-Wright and Michigan standout who played seven NBA seasons.
