NBA on TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager announced earlier this month that his leukemia had returned. He made very clear that he will do everything he can to fight it and he has been working during the course of the NCAA tournament including working the sidelines at the National Championship game in Houston.
Aside from his regularly hilarious bouts with the ornery Gregg Popovich, Sager is known for his garish style. Starting last night, some of his fellow sideline reporters from around the league tweeted pictures using the hashtag #SidelineforSager to show support for Sager in his fight against cancer.
Classy move by his fellow sideline reporters in showing support of the man that we have all come to know and love for his wild style over the years. Good effort by every one of these reporters, but there’s only one Sager. I mean, when you have KG interrupting an interview to tell you to straight up burn an outfit, you’re on a different level.
Stay strong Craig. All of us are rooting for you.
