Default NBA Statisticians

I was wondering about how to become a Sports statistician, an NBA statistician specifically? You know like those courtside guys that record the stats and sometimes write reports about them for the team during the season? Anybody know what the qualifications usually are? How hard is it to get into? Whats the pay like? I looked it up and couldn't really find much.

I'd imagine you'd have to get a job like ball boy for some team and get to know the right people. Maybe move onto office assistant for some exec and then to statistician.
