Saddened reactions to the death of Craig Sager and heartfelt remembrances of the witty, flamboyantly dressed sports reporter filled social media after he died Thursday at age 65 following a battle with cancer. Pavel Bure Jersey.There were plenty of outpourings from the world of basketball, of course, where he was best known.He was an amazing guy. The courage that he showed the last few years was incredible in his fight, reigning NBA Coach of the Year Steve Kerr said before Golden State hosted the Knicks with a tribute planned. Its just a tough day.Having worked with Sager for eight years in television, Kerr noted, He had a spirit and an energy that very few people Ive ever met possess.Others around the NBA celebrated Sager- from teams such as the Chicago Bulls or Indiana Pacers and individual current and former players such as LeBron James , who called him a friend. Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul said Sager was 1 of a kind.Thank you for being you! Golden State Warriors star and two-time MVP Stephen Curry tweeted. Brought the best out of everyone you met. (hash)sagerstrongDwyane Wade looks straight into a camera for a video in which he movingly speaks about Sagers legacy, which will never be forgotten, and notes how he left us with so many stories to tell. The Philadelphia 76ers posted a video of an ailing Sager interviewing recent Hall of Fame inductee Allen Iverson , who tells the reporter, I love you, man.Long Live Craig, Warriors star Kevin Durant tweeted. We love you! Rest in Paradise.Young Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns posted a photo on Instagram of Sager interviewing him after he won the skills competition during All-Star weekend in Toronto last year, and wrote Words cant explain how honored, humbled, and excited I was to be interviewed by a legend like you at this moment. The sports world will never be the same without you.Former Detroit Pistons Bad Boy Dennis Rodman once told Sports Illustrated that Sager tracked him down when Rodman went AWOL in 1993 and talked him out of committing suicide.Craig Sager thanks for saving my life when I was in dire need of help in Detroit back in 1993, Rodman tweeted on Thursday. Condolences to your family. RIP my friend.And there were offerings of condolences from college hoops, too, including reigning NCAA mens champion Villanova , which accompanied its message with a photo of Sager speaking to Wildcats star Kris Jenkins at this years Final Four.But Sager was known to, and appreciated by, folks from far outside his area of expertise, so tributes came from all over, whether from the World Series champion Chicago Cubs or the Pro Football Hall of Fame , which called him one of the greatest broadcasters in all of sports.Condolences and respect also poured in from the broadcasting world, which held Sager in the highest regard. Rachel Nichols, an ESPN reporter who previously worked with Sager at Turner Sports, gave a touching tribute at the open of her NBA show, The Jump.I have to tell you, having had so many conversations with him and his family along the way, the way Craig fought this spoke so much to the kind of life that he lived, the kind of values he had and the family he had around him, Nichols said. His son was one of his bone marrow donors. His wife, Stacy, who has been incredible by his side. They just celebrated their anniversary yesterday, and I know it was important to Craig to be able to do that.One simple indication of the breadth of Sagers appeal away from the world of sports: Those commenting on Twitter ranged from the likes of Vice President Joe Biden, who wrote that Sager died as he lived -- with courage, passion, perseverance, to rappers Drake and Lil Wayne, who declared that Sager is Gone but never forgotten.Rest in peace Craig aka Shiny Suit Man, Drake posted on Instagram . Glad I got to talk with you at All Star. Erik Gudbranson Jersey. Jon Montgomerys gold medal in skeleton at the Whistler Sliding Centre and his subsequent auctioning off of a pitcher of beer in the village square elevated him to folk-hero status. Markus Naslund Jersey. Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. http://www.thecanuckshockeystore.com/...lund-Adidas-Jersey/. Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. CARMEL, Ind. -- Roberto Castro kept pouring in birdies and expanding his lead in the BMW Championship until he finished with another 7-under 65 and led by as many as five shots as the other players at Crooked Stick were finishing their rounds.By the end of the day, U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson had set the course record at 63 and was tied for the lead.Johnson was asked to put himself in Castros place. If he had never won in 125 starts on the PGA Tour, had a big cushion when he finished Friday, and then saw someone like Johnson charging into the share of the lead, would he be nervous.Yeah, I would be, for sure, Johnson said.Castro, the Georgia Tech grad who needs a big week just to get home to Atlanta for the Tour Championship, is a practical sort. Hes not as long off the tee as Johnson (not many are) but hes playing well and golf rewards all manners of good play.I think if you look at the tour, it sure helps to be long, Castro said. But the guy who is striping it usually wins.They were at 14-under 130. Next up is round three:DUSTINS PUTTER: Johnson was getting frustrated by not seeing enough putts fall, so he decided to mix it up and try the TaylorMade Spider. The oversize head of the putter is designed to increase stability. Johnson was asked about the physics behind it, and he wasnt going there.I dont go into that stuff -- as long as it goes where Im looking, he said.The putts were going in the hole, including a 25-foot eagle putt on the 15th and a 30-foot birdie putt on the 14th that sent him soaring to the course record.Johnson didnt know he had the course record until Tony Pancake, the golf director at Crooked Stick, informed him.As for the physics? Johnson says he took a physics course in high school.I got an A, too, bud, he said.CASTRO AND EAST LAKE: Castro is at No. 53 in the FedEx Cup and figured he would have to win the BMW Championship to be among the top 30 who advanced to the Tour Championship at East Lake, about 15 minutes from where he lives.Its not that dire. A fourth-place finish might be enough, dependinng on other players. Jannik Hansen Jersey. Third place would all but secure it.Castro is just trying to hit fairways and greens, make a putt or two and see where it takes him.He qualified for the Tour Championship in 2013, and the next year he ended up losing his PGA Tour card.CASEYS BACK: Paul Casey is trending in the right direction. One week after he had the 54-hole lead in the TPC Boston (he finished two shots behind Rory McIlroy), he played bogey-free for a 66 on Friday and was three shots out of the lead.If you can put it on the right side of the flag, it makes your week really, really easy -- or easier, Casey said. So Ive done so far a really good job of that and I would like to continue it over the weekend.He is No. 10 in the FedEx Cup. He is No. 22 in the world. He is not eligible for the Ryder Cup because he didnt want to take European Tour membership, so the FedEx Cup is really the only thing on his mind. That and winning, which Casey hasnt done on the PGA Tour since 2009.MOVERS: J.B. Holmes shot a 65 despite a bogey on the last hole. He was four shots out of the lead, and his name on the leaderboard could -- or should -- only help his cause for becoming a captains pick on Monday for the Ryder Cup.Bubba Watson, the No. 7 player in the world, overcame his fear of blind shots and shot a 67 to tie for 10th. He also needs a captains pick. He only cared about two tournaments this year -- the Olympics and the Ryder Cup. He was in Rio. He would like to be at Hazeltine at the end of the month.DJ AND DAY: Jason Day and Johnson are Nos. 1 and 2 in the world ranking. They started 1 and 2 in the FedEx Cup. And they are 1 and 2 in the Vardon Trophy for lowest adjusted scoring average. And they have played together the opening two rounds of all three FedEx Cup playoff events.The advantage goes to Johnson, who is a collective 13 shots better than Day and sure to take over the Vardon Trophy lead if he keeps it up.
