Rudy Gay Biography
Birthday: August 17, 1986 (Leo)
Born In: Baltimore, Maryland, United States
Rudy Gay, also known as “The Great Rudini,” is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the ‘National Basketball Association’ (NBA) team ‘San Antonio Spurs’ as a small/power forward. Nicknamed the “Big Truck,” or simply the “Truck,” the ‘NBA’ veteran of 13 years has played for teams such as the ‘Memphis Grizzlies,’ the ‘Toronto Raptors,’ and the ‘Sacramento Kings,’ before joining the ‘Spurs.’ He is currently one of the only two players in the league, the other being living legend LeBron James, with at least 15,000 points, 5,000 rebounds, 1,000 steals, and 500 blocks. Gay has a career average of 17.6 points per game in a regular season, and his shooting from the field stands at about 45 percent. He is known for playing many ‘hero balls’ over the years for the teams he has represented. However, some are of the opinion that he has not really lived up to his top-10 ‘NBA Draft’ pick potential, which is marked by the fact that he has not garnered any personal accolades or titles since his rookie season. He was recently in the news when ‘San Antonio’ re-signed him, offering him a 2-year deal reportedly worth US$ 32 million, his third contract with the ‘Western Conference’ team in as many years, since becoming an unrestricted free agent in early 2017.
