Scot Pollard and fellow Boston Celtics alum Kevin Garnett reportedly nearly fought on the 2008 title team

·2 min read

We don’t want to think about who might win in a fight between Boston Celtics 2008 title alumni Scot Pollard and Kevin Garnett, but per Pollard himself, he and The Big Ticket nearly ended up coming to blows back when they were teammates on the Celtics.

Given the very large personalities of both men on the Banner 17 squad, we are not to surprised to hear the Survivor alumnus tell us about the kerfuffle in a recent interview with the folks at Heavy on their “Celtics Collective” podcast. But then again, given their also-very large bodies, it’s probably for the best of the entire franchise that pitched disagreement did not turn into something worse.

To hear the full details of the near-missed dust-up between Pollard and KG in the run-up to the title, take a look at the clip embedded below.
