TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager will miss the NBA playoffs as he undergoes treatment for leukemia.
But when San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks played on Sunday, TNT replaced Sager with his son, Craig Sager Jr.
Sager Jr. looked like a pro in the interview, and Popovich was a total class act. Junior is actually a beat writer for the Atlanta Falcons and covers high school sports in Georgia.
Great game. Spurs win 90-85. The family will always remember this game and it gave my Dad a hell of a start to his treatment.— Craig Sager II (@CraigSagerJr) April 20, 2014
Our thoughts and prayers are with Craig Sager throughout his treatment.
