The School of Sager

Welcome to Donning Craig Sager's Suit. Your guides, better known as Sager Savant and Sager's Tailor, will help you become more like a man we all strive to be: Mr. Craig Sager. Oh, and we also plan to talk shit about the NBA too.

Why Sager? Craig is a beacon for the NBA, and his guiding light has helped transform us into the basketball fans we are today. To be blunt, Sager is one of the most underrated names in the game, and most assuredly deserves a lot of credit for the fantastic work he has done for the game.

You really want to know why Sager? Okay, okay. After a Timberwolves playoff victory over the Lakers in 2003, Craig was wearing a bright yellow suit, and Kevin Garnett wasted no time in clowning on the guy. "We don't care what anybody says... we're just like your suit!" It wasn't Sager's mortified look that made us fans for life, it was the reaction of my brother, who laughed so hard from that post-game interview he threw up.

Again, thanks for stopping by, and as a reward for being such good sports, here's a video of a drunk Craig Sager about to down a Jaeger bomb with a bachelor party at [Dan] Majerle's Sports Grill in Phoenix. We're most impressed by Sager not because he's not wearing something ridiculous like a Hawaiian-themed suit, but that he renames the aforementioned drink "Sager bombs."

May the spirit of Craig Sager's Suits be with you.

That is seriously one of the best things I have ever seen in my life. My friend and I went to a Colorado-Oklahoma football game a couple of years ago and we went to the sidelines to meet Sager and we wanted him to bump knuckles with us and he looked at us like we were crazy and touched HIS MICROPHONE with our knuckles. So add the "Mic-Pound" to the "Sager Bomb" and you'll have yourself quite the evening.

Sager is classic. I think he just bar hops by himself when he is in Phoenix. I saw him at a bar during the playoffs. Apparently there wasn't enough tail there so he slammed his beer and got the hell out. Seemed like a nice enough guy though...judging by my 10 word conversation with him.

Something tells me I'll be returning to this site over and over and over again.

I can't wait to see what else Sager-inspired goodness will transpire--"Sager-bomb" here.
