Kobe Bryant, Craig Sager

The NBA world lost one of its greatest personalities in Craig Sager on Thursday. The long-standing NBA on TNT sideline reporter was known for his eccentric clothing, engaging demeanor and, in the final years of his life, his fight with cancer. Sager was first diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 2014. Although he was able to force it into remission, his leukemia returned in March 2016. Sager pushed through to broadcast the NBA Finals and in July, he received the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the ESPY Awards.

During his time on the sidelines, Sager generated chemistry with some of the greatest stars -- players, coaches, broadcasters -- in the NBA with these 10 establishing particularly notable rapports.
