Gregg Popovich is likely one of the more openly considerate coaches in the NBA, and his relationship with the late Craig Sager was well-documented and something special. Popovich flew to Atlanta the day of Sager’s funeral even though the San Antonio Spurs had a game that same night in Houston.
And according to Craig Sager Jr., Popovich recently gave him the paisley, multi-colored tie he wore to the former TNT sideline reporter’s funeral, one Sr. no doubt would have approved of.
Sometimes it’s the little things. Good on you, Pop.
