Yesterday, the sports world was rocked by the news of legendary reporter Craig Sager's passing after a two-year battle with leukemia. Sager was primarily known for his work with the NBA, but athletes from other sports were also impacted by his kindness, the quality of his work and the way he fought at the end.
This weekend, Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate will use his cleats to pay tribute to Sager. Earlier today, Tate shared a photo of his custom Air Jordan 9 cleats, which feature graphics inspired by one of Sager's famous vibrant suits. "R.I.P. Craig Sager" also runs along both toes.
As of now, it's not clear whether or not Tate will be allowed to wear the cleats in the game against the New York Giants. If not, they'll likely make an appearance during pregame warm-ups.
