Craig Sager ESPYs

When Craig Sager died in 2016, there was an outpouring of support for the NBA on TNT reporter throughout the industry. When Sager was battling leukemia, his son, Craig Jr. made an emotional guest appearance with Spurs coach Greg Popovich during one NBA on TNT telecast in 2014. And during Sager’s funeral, his daughter Kacy told a humorous story that had those in attendance in stitches.

The past year unveiled some cracks in the Sager narrative. Kacy Sager gave some details about her stepmother Stacy after criticism from someone outside the family that had no idea what they were talking about.

As we transition into 2018, Sager Jr. tweeted that he, Kacy, and their sister Krista were all left out of their father’s will.

Sager Jr. also tweeted that he received another notice:

Kacy has tweeted in support of her brother.

Sager Jr.’s ex-girlfriend also tweeted about Stacy when she learned about the will.

Stacy has two children of her own with Sager, and has been portrayed in public as a loving and loyal wife. The older Sager children apparently feel she is different than what has been portrayed.

An estate can drive a wedge through a family, and it appears that’s what has happened over the past year with the Sager family.
