Harvey Pollack, 92, stable

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."
