It saddens me to report that NBA on TNT sports reporter Craig Sager has passed away at the age of 65. Craig Sager has covered sports for over 40 years. When Hank Aaron broke the Home Run record, Craig Sager was there. When LeBron scree 40 point in the NBA Finals as a member of the Miami Heat, Craig Sager was there. Craig Sager made a name for himself with his one of a kind, colorful suits and accurate sideline reporting.
Craig Sager was diagnosed in 2014 with acute myeloid leukemia and he lost the nearly three year battle today. Our prayers go out to the family, Turner broadcasting and loved ones of Craig Sager.
