This is a huge loss for the NBA family as Sager has always brought his own style — both in his clothes and in his reporting — that is truly unique. He treats the NBA with respect but also plenty of joviality and lightheartedness. His repartee with Gregg Popovich is the stuff of legend and makes every TNT broadcast he is a part of truly enjoyable.
There will certainly be something missed for fans with Sager not on TV. The show will go on though.
And we wish Sager a speedy recovery.
