No one to ever grace an NBA sideline has looked as dapper as TNT reporter Craig Sager.

Sager, who battled leukemia last year, is undergoing another round of chometherapy treatments since he announced in March the cancer had returned. He took a break from treatments to attend Sunday’s Game 7 between the Clippers and Rockets as a spectator.

But the NBA wants to give Sager a hometown salute and asks that everyone at Philips Arena for tonight’s opening game of the Eastern Conference finals between the Hawks and Cavaliers show their support for #SagerStrong and dress like Sager.

Not sure how to pull off a Sager look? Here are some tips from Sager’s own closet.

Forget grays, blues and blacks, those are for duds. You want to stand out in the crowd with a colorful jacket.

Add some splash with a tie. Make sure they match the jacket. Dont’ get crazy, now. This is fashion after all.

Accent your look with something even more colorful. May we suggest and alligator belt?

And don’t forget the shoes. Matching the jacket is completely optional.
