Everyone's favorite sideline reporter, Craig Sager, has been battling leukemia for quite some time now and likely won't be healthy enough to work any NBA games for the foreseeable future. But while Sager is recuperating, the NBA community has gotten together to help raise funds for the SagerStrong Foundation with some interesting sneakers and T-shirts that the renowned sportscaster would surely wear himself.
Playing off Sager's love for bright colors and patterns, Nike released limited edition Sager Strong Nike Air Force 1 sneakers. Sager had a role in designing the shoes, which will be auctioned off at eBay for Charity, on Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET. According to Bleacher Report, only 100 pairs of the shoes are available and the auction winners will get the sneakers custom made for their size. The best part, 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the SagerStrong Foundation.
The SagerStrong Foundation will also be selling a T-shirt starting tomorrow, which benefits their organization. The T-shirt is basically a play on the ever popular tuxedo shirt, but it is one that is inspired by Sager's fashionable wardrobe. Proceeds from the T-shirt sales will benefit the SagerStrong Foundation as well.
Wanting to also show their support for Sager, the Golden State Warriors will be giving out a Craig Sager T-shirt to all fans in attendance on Tuesday for their season opening game against the San Antonio Spurs. The shirts are being presented by City National Bank, which will be making a donation to the SagerStrong Foundation.
This is just a very cool way for Nike and the Warriors to support Sager and his foundation. And it is also a great example of how much Sager means to the NBA community as a whole.
