Last week, Craig Sager Jr. disclosed that his father, the famed TNT reporter was battling acute leukemia. With Sr. out of action, TNT had his son fill in on the sidelines for Game 1 of the Spurs and Mavericks first round series. Pop has been especially hard on Sager and his suit collection, which can only be described as a solar powered Christmas light alternative. It's always been in good fun more than Pop's disdain for sideline interviews between quarters. However, before the third quarter Pop requested for Sager Jr. to interview him and got a little serious while sending a personal message to TNT's legendary sideline personality.
Pop specifically requested for Craig Sager's son to interview him after the 3rd Quarter.... That just touches your heart. #GetWellSager— Renato Mazariegos (@RPMSports18) April 20, 2014
Popovich gave me a hand written letter to give my Dad tomorrow. The whole Spurs organization is filled with class and great people. Thanks— Craig Sager II (@CraigSagerJr) April 20, 2014
