    Default If anyone doubts that Pollard COULD have been good for us...

    I advise you to watch Game 7 of the 2002 WCFs. I was watching that last night, and Pollard was night and day between now and then when it came to footspeed, hustle, and his defense on Shaq was SOLID. He just looked sharp, and if we had the Pollard from 2002, he'd have started at C all year. Damn back injury.

    Reggie of 2002 wasn't bad either. 2001, he was hitting half court shots to send into overtime. 2000, he was scoring 40 in back to back games. Scot Pollard of 2002 to is long gone, just like Reggie.

    Play the bugle, line up the persession... these two Pacers are headed to their graves.

    Pollard started the season and even got a second chance start at Sacto. He sucked. Can't blame it on polishing the bench. He flat out sucked in pretty much all aspects of the game.

    DW and LB rolled the dice and came up snake-eyes here. Right now the spin is that he didn't 'fit' the system. Hopefully some NBA team hungry for a center buys it and takes him off our hands (either giving us some spare parts or ending contract in return or else as filler in a bigger trade).

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    He simply doesn't fit in with the Pacers. I can't quite put my finger on it, but there's some reason why he just doesn't fit in. Maybe it was the back injury, don't know, but Scot was a stud from 1999-2002.

    His 1" vertical leap makes me think it is the back injury but don't tell any other NBA teams that!

    Hmmmm... if it IS his back injury I wonder if having 70% of the season off and another offseason could help him?

    A stud? He might have been the best third-string center in the league. But I don't know about 'stud'. Methinks that Adelman's system did a nice job of disguising his numerous weaknesses.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    He wasn't third string until 2003.

    Every minute Vlade wasn't playing, Scott was the one on Shaq in the WCF. And he did well.

    (sorry, I didn't pay attention to the dates.) Regardless...

    ... talk about "Croshering". One decent series against the Lakers still doesn't make him a 'stud'.
