When Craig Sager dropped the bomb on HBO Real Sports that doctors had only given him months to live, the entire sports world was taken aback. News that the beloved NBA sideline reporter was losing his battle with leukemia reached and touched all his fans and all those who he’s had the pleasure of interviewing, including Allen Iverson.
After hearing heartfelt words from people such as his longtime frenemy, Grergg Popovich, and the baby faced assassin, Steph Curry, Allen “The Answer” Iverson let the man known for his quirky colored ensembles that they’re one in the same when it comes to going against all odds.
Interviewing The Answer about his Hall Of Fame induction, Craig Sager got some words of encouragement from the former NBA MVP, “I love you man. You a fighter, and fight. Do what we do. That’s what we do. We fight, aight?”
