There is something universally likable about TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager, and the entire NBA community is rooting for him in his battle against acute myeloid leukemia.
The Heat hosted Sager on Thursday for the first time since he revealed that his cancer has returned and honored him with a two-minute tribute video late in the first quarter that ended with “Looking forward to seeing you in the playoffs.”
After topping the Bulls 106-98, Dwyane Wade joined Sager for the post-game interview.
“It was good,” Wade said of their talk. “I enjoy every time I’ve gotten the opportunity. Any time Craig Sager shows up, you know it’s a big game. My words to him at the end were that we all simply love him for what he’s done and the fight that he has and the joy he’s brought everyone over the years. We love him for it.”
