Legendary NBA broadcaster Craig Sager passed away on Thursday at the age of 65 after a two-year battle with acute myeloid leukemia.

It wasn't just his fabulous array of suits and jackets that made him popular.

Sager was quite possibly the most well-respected media member in all of basketball.

He was one of the few people who could break Spurs' head coach Gregg Popovich during an interview. Sager was a gentleman, a professional and a incredible human being.

These are all sentiments shared by the basketball community. Shortly following his death on Thursday, several members of the Wizards took to social media to expressed their deepest condolences to the Sager family.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's own Steve Buckhantz, a fellow NBA broadcaster, provided a brief thought on Sager as well.
