Craig Sager passed away today after an inspiring two year battle with cancer.

He was know as the NBA sideline reporter with the crazy suits. When he was presented with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award earlier this year at the ESPYS, Sager said:

Whatever I might’ve imagined a terminal diagnosis would do to my spirit, it’s summoned quite the opposite – the greatest appreciation for life itself.

So I will never give up. And I will never give in. I will continue to keep fighting, sucking the marrow out of life, as life sucks the marrow out of me. I will live my life full of love and full of fun. It’s the only way I know how.

How’s that for a life purpose and lasting legacy?!
