Players and coaches aren't the only ones honoring TNT reporter Craig Sager.

The veteran recently told HBO's Real Sports (h/t Sports Illustrated) that his leukemia is no longer in remission. When Sager returned to the sidelines, stars like Stephen Curry made sure to let him know how inspiring he is to those around basketball.

Now, it's Sager's fellow media members' turn.

Using the hashtag #SidelineForSager, reporters and analysts around the league paid homage to the 64-year-old by emulating the eccentric wardrobe he's come to be known for.
