Scot Pollard, now of the Boston Celtics, has been known to say some wacky things from time to time. So it's not surprising that he had some fun quotes for us when he was introduced to the media yesterday. Pollard was asked by why he chose to wear number 66 for his new team, he had an answer that was as funny as it was true:
“Because all the other fucking numbers were taken here.”
Exactly. The Celtics have retired 21 numbers as a franchise, and -- now this is just a hunch -- I think Pollard's 66 will be available long after he's gone.
Pollard had some other mildly amusing things to say about KG and Reggie Miller, both of which he "hated" to play against:
“In my career I’ve learned that there are certain players you hate to play against, and Reggie is one of those guys. Even though I didn’t guard him I hated the guy. On a side note, I’ve always hated playing against Kevin Garnett, too.”
With the Celtics now being one of the league's marquee attractions, someone seriously needs to get Pollard a blog. I'm thinking with the attention the team's going to get this year, we could be in for some serious Arenas-level entertainment from Scot Pollard.
