Philadelphia 76ers director of statistical information Harvey Pollack, the only person who has continuously worked for the NBA since its inception in 1946, was in critical but stable condition after a one-car accident Thursday in Philadelphia.
The 92-year-old Pollack suffered numerous injuries and underwent hip surgery Friday.
Pollack was the scorekeeper for Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game in 1962. Nicknamed "Superstat," Pollack also reportedly coined the term "triple-double."
"I'm surprised he didn't walk out of the car and brush himself off," Sixers coach Brett Brown told reporters Friday. "He's a stud, an absolute stud. Our thoughts are with him clearly."
