The depth of Craig Sager’s touch on the world of sports has been in the spotlight after his passing earlier this week. Whether it was tributes from fans, players or the teams themselves, the loud suit-wearing sideline reporter clearly meant a lot to sports, and especially the basketball world.
On top of all the tributes we’ve seen to date, Sager has one more tribute coming in the form of his own court and jerseys inside video game giant NBA 2K17.
Gamer and YouTube user Da InFaMous NY created #SagerStrong uniforms — meant to look like the shirts being sold to support cancer research — and an awesome court honoring Sager in NBA 2K17. There’s even a video tutorial provided on how you can do the same thing in the video game:

Pretty amazing work by this gamer in just a few days, and certainly a very cool tribute to Sager.
