Steve Kerr And Fans Celebrate The Life Of Craig Sager With A Wonderfully Apt ‘Moment Of Joy’

“I'd like all of you to join me in an applause for a great man and a life well lived.”

Last week, news of beloved broadcaster Craig Sager’s death sent shockwaves through the NBA and its fans. The flamboyant, likable sideline reporter for TNT had waged a two-year battle against leukemia that saw him bravely face three bone marrow transplants before succumbing to the disease.

Before last night’s game against the Phoenix Suns, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr grabbed a microphone to honor the broadcaster, known as much for his garishly wonderful wardrobe as his on-the-job professionalism. Kerr reminded the world that Sager’s bright wardrobe mirrored his outlook on life and towards other people, so he opted against the traditional “moment of silence” that’s observed to remember the recently departed.

More in keeping with Sager’s ethos, Kerr urged the fans at Oracle Arena to join him in a moment of hootin’ and hollerin’ joy. It was a wonderful moment that won’t be soon forgotten.

Here it is:

It’s hard to imagine a more fitting tribute to a man who brought joy to so many fans and players.

If you’re unfamiliar with Sager and his flamboyant wardrobe, these interviews with former NBA star Kevin Garnett, who constantly ragged on the man for his blinding suits, will better acquaint you in perfect fashion (pardon the pun):

Chances are, if you those videos are the first introduction to Craig Sager, you already miss the guy. He had that same effect on everyone who had the pleasure of working with him.


Between Alexa, Siri, and Google, artificial intelligence is quickly changing us and the way we live. We no longer have to get up to turn on the lights or set the thermostat, we can find the fastest route to work with a click, and, most importantly, tag our friends in pictures. But interacting with the world isn't the only thing AI is making easier – now we can use it save the world, too.

Since 1992, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous has been holding reunion ceremonies between Holocaust survivors and rescuers once a year. But the tradition is coming to an end, as many have died or are too frail to travel. What might be the last reunion of its kind took place when a 92-year-old woman met up with the two surviving family members that she helped hide during the Holocaust, and their descendants.

Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor introduced Melpomeni Dina (nee Gianopoulou) to their almost 40 family members, all decedents of the Mordechai family, the family of seven that Dina and her two sisters hid during WWII. "There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."
