When Barkley heard Stacy was unavailable, he flew to Phoenix to be by Craig’s side, defying his own doctor’s orders to be with his good friend and colleague. The Hall of Fame forward had hip surgery a few weeks ago and was not cleared to travel. But Barkley told his doctor that he was faced with an emergency. “Craig Sager is one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met,” said Barkley, who has worked for years with Sager at TNT. “We go to see Sager to cheer him up, and by the time you leave, you’re like, ‘Is anything wrong with him?’ He has the most positive attitude. “When you go to try and cheer him up, his attitude is so upbeat, he cheers you up.”

As the United States men’s Olympic basketball team has struggled by its own lofty standards in Rio de Janeiro, former NBA player and current TNT analyst Charles Barkley said the team’s woes are rooted in the construction of its roster. “It’s not a good team to put together,” Barkley, 53, told Sports360AZ.com. “If you take away DeAndre Jordan, every guy on that team is a ball-dominant guy. You see them playing a lot of one-on-one basketball. “That’s the thing I’ve noticed more than anything. Like, you have to understand when you put a team together like that, you have to have some role players.”
