Default Can Pro Athletes Stop Being Stupid?

Or is it just ingrained in their DNA?

Cavs' Pollard says 'Hey kids, do drugs' on camera just bad joke


March 15, 2007
CBS SportsLine.com wire reports


CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Cavaliers center Scot Pollard looked into the camera during a recent game and said, "Hey kids, do drugs."

Pollard was sitting on the bench in street clothes when he made the remark during a 20-second timeout Sunday against Indiana. The Cavaliers didn't find it funny.

"We have spoken with Scot and certainly do not condone his actions," general manager Danny Ferry said in a statement Wednesday. "He regrets his mistake, using inappropriate humor, particularly when he has always been very involved in the community, projecting positive messages to our youth. We will handle the issue internally."

"It was a bad joke," Pollard said in Thursday editions of the Plain Dealer. "That's all it boils down to. There are a number of things people could say about it, but it just turned out it was a bad joke. Obviously, I don't believe that."

Pollard, who has played in only 17 games this season, was not available on Thursday. He would be at practice on Friday, the team said.

A joke? How 'bout this then....

"Hey kids - Scot Pollard is a mindless douchebag."

Dumb a$$.

i live in cleveland and happen to be a bit of a fan of the cavs, of course nothing like the steelers or pens. they should just dump his ass now.. hes completely worthless. the only thing he is good for is laughing at his stupid hair each night while he sits in street clothes making more money than any of us for doing nothing.

What a nincompoop. OK yeah, it was a joke, but not only is it a bad message to send to kids, he shouldn't have said it because he should have known our hypersensitive PC society would jump all over him for it. Sometimes it's best to just keep your mouth shut when you're in front of a camera.

This just in from the CDC:
