He doesn’t look the same without one of his ridiculous suits, but this will have to do for now.
The NBA on TNT crew tipped their proverbial caps in Craig Sager’s direction today, honoring the beloved sideline reporter as he misses this year’s NBA playoffs to undergo treatment for leukemia.
Craig Sager is starting to feel more like a mannequin than a sideline reporter these days. But there was a time when he did real reporting and by that I mean celebrity slam dunk competitions in the 80s.
Making fun of Craig Sager’s outfits is like making fun of LeBron’s receding hairline. We all know what’s so funny, so much so that we need not comment on it. But when Sager opened his doors to show cameras how the sausage is made, all prior ball-breaking protocol flies out the window.
Craig Sager was spotted at a bar in Kansas City Friday night. That’s not news. What’s news is the startling realization that Sager’s wardrobe when he’s off the clock is not all that different than his on-the-air style.
TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager wears horrible suits all the time. It’s his shtick. You might have seen him in this one, or this one, or this one. And few have been more outspoken about just how awful these outfits are than Kevin Garnett… until last night.

You’ve got it made. You lucked in to rooting for the best young team in the NBA when it moved to your area, and now your Thunder are among the favorites to win the NBA title. And what’s more, now you’ve got prime seats to a playoff game as the Thunder try to achieve that goal, and it’s a marquee opponent in the Lakers, and the Thunder are kicking ass, winning by 30 midway through the fourth quarter. What could be better? What could get in the way of such a perfect evening?
After a 7 game, 20 day layoff (also known as a suspension), Metta World Peace returned to the NBA floor last night. With such a long break, you had to wonder whether the Queensbridge native would able to keep up with his teammates and the Nuggets. But not only did World Peace play well — he was a difference maker in this one. Watch his post-game interview, after the jump.
