Pollard resided on the opposite end of the Celtics universe from Russell. His brief stay with the Boston Celtics in 2007-08 would have been completely forgettable had it not been for his unique hairstyle and facial hair.
Nicknamed “The Butcher,” Pollard made a Sports Illustrated for Kids list of the NBA’s Worst Hair Cuts and a Sports Illustrated list of the NBA’s Best Haircuts – for the same hair do – while he was with Cleveland.
Pollard kept his beard in its full-blown glory during his 22 games in Boston. But he was probably better remembered for his visits to “Planet Pollard” during CSNNE’s “Celtics Now” telecasts.
