The Houston Rockets plan to honor Craig Sager tonight. Here are Pop's thoughts on Sager: "He wasn't just an iconic figure everybody saw on TV, his personality, his clothes and the whole deal. But that's just a small piece of him. We all knew him a lot more closely and intimately. So he'll always be in everybody's thoughts. When you have a friend like that that you lose, you don't forget those people. So at this time, teams are getting together and trying to do what we can to show the love that we all had for him."
