Basketball career

After a college career at the University of Missouri and Southern Illinois University that finished in his junior year,[1]Hudson was not selected in the 1997 NBA draft, and played his first season in the Continental Basketball Association. Since earning a hard-fought spot on the Utah Jazz in 1998, which only lasted two months, he later played for the Los Angeles Clippers (also playing during the short-lived 1999 season in the CBA) and the Orlando Magic, where he first developed into an important player, averaging 12 points and 3 assists per game during 2001-02, while appearing in 81 games.

However, Hudson's most productive seasons came with the Minnesota Timberwolves, where he averaged a career-best 14.2 pts and 5.7 assists in 2002-03, also receiving the nickname "Laker Killer" for his outstanding postseason play against the Los Angeles Lakers, where he increased his numbers to 23.5 points in a 2-4 first-round loss.

Since landing a lucrative contract extension in 2003, Hudson was plagued by nagging injuries that subsequently hurt his production, as he only appeared in 70 games from 2005-07 combined. His contract with the Timberwolves was bought out on August 3, 2007.[2]

Originally signed to the Golden State Warriors on September 24, 2007, Hudson appeared in only nine games in the 2007-08 season.[3]Following hip surgery on January 10, 2008, he was waived by the Warriors on January 29, to make room for Chris Webber,[3]averaging 9.0 points per game throughout his NBA career.

Music career

Hudson released one major album, Undrafted, also having recorded around 800 songs. A drum machine usually accompanies him on road trips. "I have my own label — Nutty Boyz Entertainment — and I have three artists (that I manage)", he said in an interview.[4]However, the albums were not big sellers, with Hudson only selling 78 copies of his own in its first week of sales.[5]
