He was the man. I am going to miss seeing him, especially him talking to Pop.

Oh man, that sucks!  Sorry

yeah it does, same thing as sager had. Problem was he needed a stem cell transplant, so they nuked/chemo'd all the cells, to the point that some infection set in within two days and that was it. Started in a muscle in his butt, spread into abdomen, nothing could kill it. scary shit man.

Sager was all that was right about the NBA, a very classy individual.  I always found it amazing how he could dress like he did, and take the ribbings he did, but still perform an interview as if nothing was out of the normal.  His exchanges with Pop were always entertaining.  Seems he was the only person Pop would bother doing an interview with.  A class act taken too soon...

Yep Sager, as goofy as he dressed was a good dude who loved what he did.   Cancer sucks donkey Dicks.

Philly that cancer that started off in butt muscle is the same one I believe that took Sweet Cora who was Cameron's friend from St Jude.  Peanut Tilman came down virtually every Tuesday when he was off and spent hours with Cora and did so much for her family that most people have no idea about.  Peanut say with and kept her 9 year old brother together all day at Cora's visitation and memorial service that was so large that it was held in her high school. 

**** cancer.  Kids are not supposed to die...**** that mother ****ing piece of shit!!
