Scot Pollard talks 2002 Kings-Lakers Game 6, Kansas, Survivor
11-year NBA player and 2008 NBA champion Scot Pollard visits the Jack Vita Show to talk his time with the Kansas Jayhawks, the new Big 12 (and Kansas' future in the Big 12), dealing with internet trolls, his hilarious "Kids, do drugs" joke from 2007, his time on Survivor's 32nd season (Survivor: Kaoh Rong), his time playing with the Sacramento Kings and Indiana Pacers, as well as many other topics along the way, and stories from his time in the NBA.
Scot fouled out of game 6 of the 2002 NBA Finals, a game that was accused by disgraced NBA official Tim Donaghy of being "fixed" by the league. What are Scot's thoughts on what may or may not have gone down that night in Los Angeles? Scot was also on-hand for the 2004 'Malice at the Palace' as a member of the Indiana Pacers. Hear Scot's thoughts on the melee that ensued and the 2021 Netflix documentary on one of the worst nights in professional sports history. Would the 2004 Pacers have won the NBA Finals if they had beaten the Pistons in the 2004 Eastern Conference Finals? How does Scot feel about the reputation of the 2007 Cleveland Cavaliers that went to the NBA Finals? Panned by many as "one of the worst teams to reach the Finals, that was carried by LeBron James", Scot was a member of the team. What are his thoughts? Scot shares about playing with the 2008 Celtics, after playing with Paul Pierce at Kansas, and much more!
