Ep. 70: Scot Pollard

Scot Pollard played in the NBA for five teams over 11 seasons, spanning 1997 through 2008. In his final season, he won a NBA championship with the Boston Celtics.

Pollard, 42, lives in Indianapolis and has had no trouble filling the void that is left after basketball. He has dabbled in comedy and will soon launch his own podcast, Planet Pollard.

We cover it all in this hour-long conversation. I think you’ll really enjoy hearing from the always entertaining Pollard. He does not disappoint.

[Pollard previously appeared on the podcast to discuss his experience on CBS’ Survivor]
