Scot Pollard on Phil Jackson: “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 … 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.” Jackson won 11 titles in 20 seasons as a coach. He coached Jordan and Kobe before they won titles. Were they obviously going to be good enough players to win titles, or was his presence necessary for them to achieve greatness? I’ll tell you one thing – Scot Pollard was a scrub. An annoying, attention-starved scrub. [Sports Radio Interviews]
