Sager, who is back from dealing with leukemia, was in Chicago and providing sideline analysis and interviews dressed in his usual, wild apparel.

And guess who was there to greet him? Well, Russell Westbrook, of course. Westbrook, a regular at New York’s Fashion Week and an eccentric dresser in his own right, congratulated Sager before the game.
