Scot Pollard is a retired NBA champion who played for 5 teams in the league over 11 seasons.
He graduated from Kansas University with. BS in education. Currently keeps busy professionally by speaking publicly both to businesses and schools, doing some broadcasting, stand up comedy, doing community work with the Indiana Pacers as well as volunteering on a number of local committees in the Indianapolis area with his wife, Dawn.
Personal life revolves around typical suburban dad stuff: Taxiing kids around to sports and activities, coaching one son’s basketball team, and putting up and taking down decorations.
This podcast will focus on any number of the above in addition to my participation on survivor, interviewing cast mates, old teammates, and other people I think are worthy of airtime
Join Scot Pollard with Indiana Pacers play-by-play voice Mark Boyle. Mark talks about working alongside legend Slick Leonard, a classic story with “Slick” courtside, one of the craziest names Mark had to say on the air, why everyone freaks out over politics on social media and living the cigar life.
Brent Joseph joins Scot today to taste some tequila and live the suburb dad life! Brent is a member of the Bourbon Society of Indianapolis, a BBQ enthusiast, and a cigar aficionado.
Planet Pollard Podcast: Charles Barkley isn’t impressed by the Euro competition Luka Doncic dominated
“I don’t trust the foreign competition. I have nothing against foreign players; I just don’t know what type of competition,” Barkley told Pollard. “At 18 years old [Luka Doncic] was the MVP. Well that tells me he’s playing against s—-y competition. Nobody at 18 should be dominating grown men.
“You go back and look at the NBA, there’s only one 18-year-old you can go back and say, ‘Oh, he’s the real deal.’ That’s LeBron James. People forget as great as Kobe Bryant was, he struggled for his first few years. Kevin Garnett struggled his first few years.
“They keep telling me that Doncic won the MVP 18 — I’m like, ‘who was he playing against?’ He should not be dominating grown men at 18.”
