Christen Guilford Dudley (born February 22, 1965) is a former NBA basketball player, who spent sixteen years playing for different teams. The oft-injured center was known as a good rebounder and shot blocker but also for his limited offensive game and poor free throw shooting. Once, in a game on April 14, 1990, he missed 17 of 18 foul shots, including a record 13 straight [1]. However, his immaculate work ethic and his ability to play 886 NBA games during his career while being a diabetic earned him much respect.
