Former Kansas Jayhawk Scott Pollard played 11 years in the NBA. Most of those with the Sacramento Kings and the Indiana Pacers. In 2008 he got his first NBA championship ring with the Boston Celtics. He was kinda like the white Dennis Rodman of the NBA in a way, but less of a beast on the boards.
This week, Pollard went in on Phil Jackson’s legacy during a radio interview on Sacramento radio station KHTK:
I just think he’s one of the most overrated coaches of our time. He’s only had the greatest players of our era on his teams. Put him in charge of the Sacramento Kings this year, and I don’t mean to offend Sacramento fans, but put him on a team with no Hall-Of-Famers on it at least no one that has established themselves as a Hall-Of-Famer already, put him as the Head Coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers right now and let’s see how he does next year with no Hall-Of-Famers on the team. That’s all I’m saying.
