Here is a portion of the blog:

The Sixers honored Pollack with a ceremony between the first and second quarters, which included videotaped tributes from ex-Sixer Charles Barkley, Shaquille O'Neal and the rest of the TNT studio crew.

Pollack usually hears from ESPN broadcaster/Hall of Fame player Bill Walton on his birthday, but Walton was on his way to broadcast a game in Sacramento Friday.

On Pollack's 88th birthday two years ago, Walton phoned Pollack and interspersed plenty of complimentary phrases (such as "intergalactic treasure") into a version of "Happy Birthday" that lasted eight minutes.
