Former Kings Center Scot Pollard joins Deuce and Jason Ross to talk about the upcoming NBA draft and all the latest injury news about draft prospect Joel Embiid.
Pollard says he would still take Embiid at number one in the draft and believes Cleveland should as well. He says this being a bone problem rather than a ligament problem is something to look at because bones heal while ligaments could mean something else is wrong with the athlete.
He says he didn’t watch much of the NBA finals but when he did he was surprised that Miami had issues scoring and thinks they will be fine and don’t need to push the panic button.
He touches on a movie he’s been working on and how it has basketball involved. “AAU basketball is corrupting youth basketball,” Pollard says. He talks about his views on youth basketball and why people need to let young athletes enjoy their sport.
