This is amazing news for basketball fans, Craig Sager is returning back to the sidelines!  Sager captured the world’s attention with the blinding suits he’d wear each game but his genuine and charismatic personality is what kept everyone wanting to see more as well as the occasional battle with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich.  The veteran sideline reporter stepped away from his job last April when it was announced he had acute leukemia but gladly he’s now coming back.

Craig Sager Jr. – who’s also ventured into sports reporting himself – announced on Twitter that his father was returning to the sidelines on Thursday, March 5 for the Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Chicago Bulls game.

The news he has put this cancer in remission and can return to work is great news for us as fans, but better news for the Sager family. It will be great to see him on our television screens again.

Even if his suits might blind us sometimes.
