For a limited time, Twitter has created a hashflag for Turner Sports sideline reporter Craig Sager, who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2014. Gregg Popovich's buddy is best known for his wild suits, and the emoji accompanying his hashtag reflects that.


The #SagerStrong hashflag will be available worldwide for a week starting at 9 a.m. ET on Tuesday. On a related note, Turner Sports is auctioning off 100 pairs of "Sager Strong" sneakers, created by the sideline reporter himself, to benefit the Sager Strong Foundation.
