Recently, the NBA lost one of its most vibrant figures; Craig Sager.
Like many who have fought Leukemia, Sager wrestled with it for a number of years. As a sideline reporter, he was known for his colorful suits; and even more colorful personality – matching his overall joy for work and life. When he learned of his diagnosis, instead of of letting it get the best of him, he decided to embrace it. All the tests and checkups that he needed now became a regular part of his routine. He never let it slow him down because his work was what brought him joy.
On the night of his passing, the NBA community celebrated Sager in many ways such as having moments of silence in his honor, and also by wearing colorful suit shirts modeled after the suit jacket he wore at the ESPY Awards. But the Golden State Warriors decided to honor Craig by having a moment of joy. Watch below:
