TNT’s Craig Sager Gets Amazing Welcome Back After Leukemia Treatment

Craig Sager was back on the sidelines for TNT on Thursday night in a triumphant return after he battled leukemia.

Sager, 63, hadn’t been on the NBA beat since last April, but he didn’t look rusty at all during Thursday’s Thunder-Bulls game in Chicago, which included the Bulls mascot, Benny the Bull, issuing him a special Bulls-colored jacket, similar to the outlandish ones Sager is known for wearing.

TNT also gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at what Sager’s first night back at work looked like.
