Before the start of tonight’s Bucks-Bulls game on TNT, the Inside The NBA crew reminisced about their years working with the late Craig Sager. Ernie Johnson was off tonight due to an illness in the family, but he produced a video tribute for Sager, after which Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley, Shaq, and Johnson’s replacement Casey Stern spoke about their memories of Sager. Smith said that he wouldn’t be a broadcaster if not for Sager’s influence.
