• Statistic pioneer Pollack dead at 93


    PHILADELPHIA: Harvey Pollack, who reinvented the art of collecting NBA statistics from the very first season, died on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) at age 93. The long-time statistics and media relations director with the Philadelphia 76ers and their predecessors the Philadelphia Warriors invented things that are now commonplace in NBA statistical fare, including the counting of blocked shots and technical fouls as well as keeping track of both offensive and defensive rebounds.
