TNT Gives Craig Sager Emotional Tribute During Christmas NBA Games (Video)

by

Legendary sideline reporter Craig Sager was diagnosed with leukemia in April, and since then, TNT’s NBA broadcasts have been a little less colorful.

That’s why on Christmas Day, one of the league’s biggest game days, TNT aired an 18-minute tribute to Sager. The video goes through Sager’s journey, from his initial diagnosis to his road to recovery after a successful bone marrow transplant from his son, Craig Sager Jr.

It also features interviews with two of his biggest fans: San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and Brooklyn Nets big Kevin Garnett.

Sager is expected to have a full recovery, but there’s no timeline as to when he’ll be back on the sideline.
