Scott and Sager were renown as broadcasting legends in the sports world before their passing.
Scott graduated from the University of North Carolina and also played on the Tar Heels’ football team. He went on to work for WRAL-TV in Raleigh for a time before eventually finding his way to ESPN, where he became a national icon for coverage on professional sports. Scott passed away in 2015 after a long battle with cancer.
Sager was best known for his work as a sideline reporter for NBA coverage on TNT. He was also famous for his outlandish choices in clothing and was rarely seen in the same suit twice in a row. Before his death in 2016, he was inducted into the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
Scott and Sager were also awarded with the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the 2014 and 2016 ESPN Awards Shows, respectively.
