The tributes to Craig Sager keep rolling in on Thursday, and the latest comes from two of the greats in Chris Webber and Kevin Garnett

The entire sports world was shaken to the core on Thursday with the news of the unfortunate passing of beloved sideline broadcaster Craig Sager. TNT announced the news on Thursday that Sager had passed away from complications with his leukemia at the age of 65.

Of course, since the news of his passing, the tributes and condolences have been rolling in from all over, especially the NBA world. Given the job that he was tasked to do, Sager built a special relationship with some of the greats in the NBA.

Thursday night shortly after the news of his passing, Kevin Garnett and Chris Webber got together on the Area 21 segment on TNT to pay their respects to a man both of whom considered a friend.

Webber, an analyst for TNT the past few years, has really gotten the chance to grow closer to Sager as a colleague. He not only spent time with him during his playing days, but he had the opportunity to start off his broadcasting career alongside one one of the all-time bests in Craig Sager.

Over the coming days there will surely be more tributes pouring in, but really, it doesn’t get any better than watching some of the giants of the NBA talking about what Sager truly meant to them.
