As the sporting world comes to grips with the passing away of Craig Sager, one NBA 2K17 user has decided to pay homage to the legendary sideline reporter with "Sager Strong" uniforms and court design.
The Youtube user, who goes by the name Da InFaMous NY, has offered a downlodable file that will allow gamers to get the desired uniforms and court design. There is also the option of creating the jerseys and courts without downloading the file by following a few simple steps from the link above.
The download can also be found in the community creations section of the game. Credit to the gamer who has created a near exact replica of the "Sager Strong" tops that players had sported during warmups (prior to games) this week. Also, the back of the jerseys has the quote "Time is simply how you live your life" imprinted on them. It's inspired from Sager's moving and unforgettable speech during the ESPY Awards a few months before his demise.

The download also includes a special pair of shorts that perfectly match the jerseys. The 2K user has also created a magnificent Sager Strong-themed court which has a picture of Craig Sager at midcourt and the hashtag #SAGERSTRONG imprinted across both baselines. The court is painted in yellow, black and white, the colours that are synonymous with the #SAGERSTRONG movement.
Since the reporter's untimely death, a host of television hosts and athletes have been paying tribute to the late broadcaster by sporting colourful suits, the kind that Craig Sager was known for.
Steve Kerr, coach of the Golden State Warriors, was a colleague of Sager during his days as an analyst with TNT. Prior to the Warriors' home game against the New York Knicks, Kerr delivered a heartfelt tribute.
“We worked together for eight years. Lot of fun games, lot of fun nights on the road. But with Sags, you only saw him for about 15 minutes on the road because he had to move on to the next bar or restaurant to see the next group of people. He knew so many people that he literally couldn’t sit still," Kerr said at the Oracle Arena.
