Lakers Pay Tribute to Craig Sager

The entire NBA found itself in mourning Thursday as word spread that legendary broadcaster Craig Sager had passed away from a three-year battle with leukemia.

The 65-year-old enjoyed a career than spanned over four decades and became a familiar face for basketball fans who would see him don his trademark, colorful suits while giving his sideline reports for Turner Sports.

The Lakers issued a statement from President and co-owner Jeanie Buss, while the players themselves took to social media to pay their respects.
