Adam Silver’s statement regarding the passing of Harvey Pollack

NEW YORK – NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has issued the following statement regarding the passing of Harvey Pollack:

“There has never been an NBA without Harvey Pollack, who has been part of the NBA family since he was tracking statistics for the Philadelphia Warriors during the league’s inaugural season.   He documented NBA history for nearly 70 years with passion, curiosity and a relentless work ethic.  Harvey has been a true caretaker and ambassador of the game, and he will be sorely missed.  The entire NBA family sends its deepest condolences to the Pollack family as well as the Philadelphia 76ers organization.”
