ESPN’s the G.O.A.T. For What They’re Doing for Craig Sager

Working for ESPN allegedly sucks, just ask Bill Simmons, Skip Bayless, Colin Cowherd, and the rest of the squady.

But today, ESPN gained a million brownie points in the sports community, for doing an all-time unbelievable move, allowing Craig Sager, under contract with TNT, to jump over to ESPN for one night on Thursday to report from the sideline for Game 6 of the NBA Finals, an event he’s never been on the sidelines for.

ESPN doesn’t just do stuff like this. They hate their talent going on other networks, or having somebody else’s people on their shows. So for ESPN to do this shows their respect for a guy like Sager.

There’s a level of bittersweet though. Just think about Jeff Van Gundy throwing it to Craig on the sideline. Salivation. But the thought that this could be Sager’s first and last Finals appearance, due to his health, is painful to think about, and maybe something we just shouldn’t think about, and instead enjoy the history in all its glory.

I’ll tell you this much: the suit will be some Katniss and Peeta at the opening ceremonies type shit.

  1. Great Article, It’s also a good move by TNT to allow sager to work at the NBA Finals. They could been jerks and told him he’s under contract with TNT and made it so he couldn’t go.
