San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich and late TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager continue to have one of the most beautiful friendships despite being in different realms.

Popovich wore a very colorful tie to Sager’s funeral, inspired by the late’s sense of style, combining colorful patterns and different hues. The 67-year-old coach reached out to his son, Craig Sager Jr., and gave him that very tie on New Year’ Day when the Spurs played the Atlanta Hawks.
