Harvey Pollack, the last original employee of the NBA’s inaugural season to still be working in the league, has died. He was 93. Pollack died on Tuesday. Pollack worked for the Philadelphia 76ers at the time of his death, spending the past 28 years as the team’s director of statistical information.
“He may never have laced up his sneakers, but few have done more to advance the game, in the NBA or Philadelphia basketball, than Harvey,” Sixers CEO Scott O’Neil said. “He did what he loved until the end, and shared that love of statistics and basketball with his family, who we remember at this difficult time.
