THIS IS EPISODE 273 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Troy Hudson played 11 seasons in the NBA from 1998-2008 with the Jazz, Clippers, Magic, Timberwolves and Warriors. He was undrafted after playing his college ball at Southern Illinois, and made his NBA debut on Oct. 31, 1997, with Utah.
His best season came in 2002-03 with Minnesota, as he averaged 14.2 points and 5.7 assists for a 51-win Timberwolves team. In the playoffs that year against the Shaq-and-Kobe Lakers, Hudson averaged 23.5 points in the six-game series.
Today, Hudson is the team chaplain for the Timberwolves and ministers to players before each game. He also is active in youth sports, coaching and training young athletes in the game of basketball.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Hudson about his role as an NBA team chaplain, the state of faith in the NBA, the importance of guys like Stephen Curry using their platform to be bold about Christ, his first NBA game, and the difference between believing in God and having a personal relationship with Jesus.
