Craig Sager is beloved by every coach and player that has ever had the chance to be interviewed by the legendary sideline reporter, and Allen Iverson is among the many showing the love in a major way.
Sager revealed that he is no longer in remission after he was told by doctors he might have three to six months to live as his leukemia has returned. Iverson, one of the NBA’s all-time great fighters, had this message for Sager.
“Man, I love you, man, you a fighter,” Iverson said. “And fight. Do what we do. That’s what we do, we fight.”
Sager will work tonight’s Chicago Bulls vs Miami Heat matchup on TNT.
