Tributes Planned for TNT’s Sager
NEW YORK (AP) — The Golden State Warriors and TNT will begin the season with a tribute to Craig Sager as the sideline reporter continues to battle leukemia.
TNT will unveil a T-shirt during its Tuesday night studio show that was inspired by the suit Sager wore while receiving the Jimmy Valvano Award at this year's ESPY Awards. The Warriors will then give their fans at their season opener against San Antonio a Sager Strong T-shirt. The team also will play a message in the arena supporting his fight.
The NBA is opening with three games tonight. Cleveland will host the Knicks while the Portland Trail Blazers will open their season at home against Utah.
