Craig Sager Dies, Celebs Pay Tribute on Twitter - Read Tweets

Craig Sager, known for being a colorful sideline reporter for Turner Sports, has died at the age of 65.

The legendary sports broadcaster was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 2014.

Craig was presented with the Jimmy V Perserverance Award at the 2016 ESPYs and Vice President Joe Biden showed up to present the award.

Craig Sager was a beloved member of the Turner family for more than three decades and he has been a true inspiration to all of us,” Turner president David Levy said in a statement. “There will never be another Craig Sager. His incredible talent, tireless work ethic and commitment to his craft took him all over the world covering sports.”

“While he will be remembered fondly for his colorful attire and the TNT sideline interviews he conducted with NBA coaches and players, it’s the determination, grace and will to live he displayed during his battle with cancer that will be his lasting impact. Our thoughts and prayers are with Craig‘s wife, Stacy, and the entire Sager family during this difficult time. We will forever be Sager Strong,” the statement added.
