NBADJ Khaled's Custom Craig Sager Jordan 1s Are Phenomenal
A fitting tribute to the best and most dressed man in the NBA.
Craig Sager is more than just an NBA sideline reporter. He's one of the most inspiring figures in the entire sports world. During his ongoing battle with acute myeloid leukemia, Sager has shown a dedication to his work and a refusal to quit that will just as soon make you cheer as make you cry. In an interview with GQ last season, Sager talked at length about his chemo and how he felt great and how working had kept him energized. So it was sad to learn that he would have to undergo a third bone marrow transplant, but Craig appeared in good spirits when it happened.
Which brings us to some awesome Sager news shared by none other than the key-master himself, DJ Khaled. The famous musician-slash-Snapchat savant rocked a pair of Jordan 1s that were customized to honor Sager's signature wild style. The results? These things are fucking beautiful.
DJ Khaled has said that only two have been made, but added "for now." So hopefully, we'll soon be able to fight each other tooth and nail in a line at some shop or in a browser-refreshing contest so that we can all own a pair of shoes as loud and proud as the man himself. As Sager told us last year:
I just like colors, you know. I like lots of color.
I think if he ever deigned to wear sneakers, these would be the ones he'd wear.
