Ep. 14: Scot Pollard on his ‘Survivor’ experience

Scot Pollard played in the NBA for 11 seasons, including three for the Pacers, and he won an NBA Championship in his final season, 2008, while with the Boston Celtics.

2016-01-20 Scot Pollard on SurvivorHe’s on the latest season of Survivor, which currently airs at 8:00 p.m. ET on CBS. The group of 18 is gone for seven weeks and isolated on Kaoh Rong, the second largest island of Cambodia. The lone survivor wins a grand prize of $1 million.

Pollard, 41, has always been up for a challenge. At 6-foot-11 he’s obviously long, and being a professional athlete for more than a decade taught him all kinds of lessons. He’s mentally strong and wanted to test his strength.

And his time away led him to having a child on the way with his wife, Dawn.

    Don’t know if Scot will see this but his actions along with buddy Jason tonight are something to be ashamed of. Shows the true measure of him as a man. Of them. I would not be proud of them if I was family. There is a game then there is cruelty. I don’t think a game forces that showing unless it’s who you truly are.
