A very sad story. He's the best when it comes to sideline reporting.

No one will ever ever top him in the field of sideline reporting.

Some very heartfelt words, from the man who dished it to Sager the most:

http://www.cbssports.com/nba/news/emotional-gregg-popovich-shares-heartfelt-thoughts-on-death-of-craig-sager/

Its really nice to see though, nearly every current and former NBA star and coach, show some love to Sager. Many practices have had players practice with SagerStrong shirts. Just well-deserved for a man who won everyone's hearts, not just with his attire, but also his battle against cancer.

Guess he wasn't kidding about dying.

Really...if your a sports announcer....you want to be a sideline reporter for 25 years? It's like being the weather reporter on the morning news. It's a job for young girls working to be something else.---Yohe

Totally random.

Saw Sager interviewing Dale Brown in a weird spot on a 1986 Saturday Night from March.

A very sad epilogue to all this:

Perhaps this is more the case of Stacy getting in Craig's ear. Hopefully thats the case.

Kacy Sager, Craig II's sister, wrote this tweet to give her side of the story.
