Craig Sager’s daughter Kacy brought a touch of levity to his memorial service

1 Comment

Craig Sager, the legendary TNT sideline reporter, passed away last week at the age of 65 from leukemia. Public memorials have been displayed in droves, but on Tuesday Sager’s actual memorial gathered former co-workers, NBA players, family, and friends to remember a life that touched so many in a positive way.

Current TNT host Ernie Johnson gave a particularly moving speech, and Gregg Popovich even flew in to Atlanta for the ceremony despite the San Antonio Spurs having a game on Tuesday night in Houston against the Rockets.

And while memorial services are a place for grieving, so too are they for remembering the life of those who lived and have passed. Sager’s daughter, Kacy, did that in a way befitting of her father as she spoke at the memorial:

A twinge of sad through a smile, that’s how I think we all feel about Sager right now.

Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?

Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.

The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.

That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.

Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.

Too good.

With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.

Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.

After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
