The 2014 NBA Playoffs are set to tip off tomorrow. And you know what that means, right? It means we're going to see lots and lots and lots of really ridiculous suits from Craig Sager over the course of the next couple months. The TNT sideline reporter is known for stepping his suit game up for the postseason.
It doesn't sound like we're going to see them right away, though. Because according to Sager's son Craig Sager II, the legendary sideline reporter is battling acute leukemia at the moment and is going to start undergoing treatment for it today. So he's probably not going to be on the sidelines for the start of the playoffs—and he might not make it back in time for any of the playoffs, depending on how his treatments go.

Obviously, we wish Sager nothing but the best and hope that his treatments go well. The playoffs just won't feel the same without him delivering reports and interviewing players. So we hope he has a speedy recovery and gets back on the sidelines ASAP.
