Video Caption Contest: Describing Craig Sager's suits

May 25, 2010 |  3:00 pm

It's nearly become a ritual of the NBA season. TNT sideline reporter Craig Sager wears brightly colored suits and often becomes the comic relief during the obligatory in-game and post-game interviews. Shaquille O'Neal once described Sager's wardrobe as "horri-awful." Kevin Garnett suggested last season to Sager that he should burn his pink suit. And in the middle of the Lakers' 118-109 Game 3 Western Conference Finals loss Sunday to the Phoenix Suns, Lakers Coach Phil Jackson compared Sager to the Good Humor ice cream man.

Joked Jackson: "You know I didn't recognize you right away."

To credit the readers of the L.A. Times Lakers blog, many compared Sager during Game 3 to the Easter Bunny long before Jackson's punchline. But I want to hear more comparisons. The best comment will be featured in Wednesday morning's links post.
