The relationship between colorful TNT reporter Craig Sager and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is a beautiful one.

Popovich has always been rough on reporters, both during and after games. Yet, he has always has had a soft spot for the eccentric suit-wearing Sager.

On March 23, Sager put out a statement stating that he is battling a rare-form of cancer yet again, but will continue his fight against it.

Since the news was announced to the public, pin-maker Patti Lapel created a Craig & Pop pin that highlights their on-court friendship.

The pins are being sold for $10 each and according to the website, 15 percent of all proceeds will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

It wouldn’t surprise me if Pop owned a pin already, but what will surprise is if he gives a sideline reporter an interview that lasts longer than 25 seconds.
