These days a hashtag can represent anything. In the case of Craig Sager this hashtag represents support, love and immense loyalty from those in the NBA world and all the fans he has touched.
In February, Sager was informed that his leukemia was no longer in remission. His doctors gave him an expectancy of 3-6 months. Even throughout his fight he has continued to report and interview coaches at the end of each game. The overwhelming love, compassion and respect of all staff surrounding Sager has been shown in each interview, each post game and each article.
Craig Sager’s light and energy is what makes him such an inspiration to all those that must fight this battle. “…I’m not going to be that 3–6 months. I‘m going to be that five years. I’m going to make medical history. … I’m fighting this thing to the end. I have too much to do.” Sager says.
He was diagnosed with leukemia back in April 2014 and the disease came back in March 2015. Sager has had two stem cell transplants; the second one in July 2015. He was back at it, on air by the first game of the 2015-16 season.
