Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Stu's Hunt Down: Former Wolves player Troy Hudson

Please enjoy a piping hot bowl of Commenter Stu as he jogs your memory in a way that only he can. Stu?

--------------------

The Huntdown

Name: Troy “T-Hud” Hudson
 
Claim to Fame, Minnesota: the oft-injured point guard played for the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2002-2007. As this Sports Illustrated NBA preview from the halcyon days of 2002 notes, Hudson was a streaky shooter who got his break as a replacement for the oft-injured point guard Terrell Brandon. His best run with the team came against the Lakers in the 2003 playoffs, where he averaged 23.5 points and 5.5 assists. He signed a lucrative contract extension afterwards, ruined his ankle in a preseason game, then played a total of 70 games from 2005-2007 before the Wolves bought out his contract.
 
NOTE: “Oft-injured point guard” is an actual roster spot on the Timberwolves, as is “Eastern European project that will never, ever pan out.”
 
Claim to Fame, Everywhere Else: as our readers in Yakima and Sioux Falls well know, Hudson played for the Sun Kings and Skyforce in their respective cities. His NBA stops included Utah, the Los Angeles Clippers, Orlando, and Golden State. Hip-hop fans may recall that Hudson also released his own album, Undrafted, which featured collaborations with the Oscar-winning Three 6 Mafia and noted Kardashian-filmer Ray J. It sold poorly.
 
Where He Is Now: Hudson has stayed in the music industry as the owner and CEO of Troy Hudson Enterprises. His most well-known artist is probably former American Idol contestant Paris Bennett.  
 
Has He Blogged at the Huffington Post: yes.
 
Does He Still Have the Hair: no.
 
Is He On Twitter: no.
 
Glorious Randomness: Hudson is a native of Carbondale, Illinois (town motto: “Haven’t You Heard?”). As you likely know, Carbondale is the home of the Fuller Dome Home, which was built by the late R. Buckminster Fuller. Fuller popularized geodesic domes and thus can be held personally responsible for the Pauly Shore/Stephen Baldwin vehicle Bio-Dome. History’s greatest monster? Perhaps.
