Sacramento Kings Fans Rally Support For Scot Pollard’s Family Post Heart Transplant

Former Sacramento Kings player Scot Pollard is receiving an outpouring of support from friends, former teammates, and fans as he undergoes a heart transplant procedure. A Go Fund Me campaign was launched by Jodi Bacon, a Sacramento-based television producer, to assist Pollard’s family with the mounting expenses. Initially aiming to raise $10,000, the campaign had already received $16,000 in just 15 hours. Pollard, 49, had been battling heart failure for three years before receiving the transplant at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee. His wife, Dawn, has been providing updates on social media, sharing a photo of Pollard’s recovery progress so far.

Scot Pollard is best known for his time with the Sacramento Kings, where he played for five seasons and became a fan favorite. He also had stints with the Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Boston Celtics. Pollard won an NBA championship with the Celtics in 2008 and was a key contributor to the Kings’ successful playoff runs under coach Rick Adelman, including a trip to the Western Conference finals in 2002. Known for his colorful personality and unique hairstyles, Pollard averaged 5.9 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks per game during his time with the Kings. The support for Pollard’s Go Fund Me campaign reflects the impact he made on both the basketball community and fans alike.
