RAIDING SAGER'S WARDROBE: In N.Y., Bernie Augustine noted TNT’s "Inside the NBA" crew of Ernie Johnson, Charles Barkley, Kenny Smith and Shaquille O’Neal wore "Sager-style suits during the studio show” yesterday. Meanwhile, announcers Marv Albert and Steve Kerr during Game 1 of the Wizards-Bulls series "donned not-so-regular suit-shirt combos in a nod to Sager” (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 4/21). BROADCASTING & CABLE's John Eggerton notes Albert wore an "Easter Parade-inspired lavender assemblage," while O'Neal wore a seersucker suit and Kerr a shirt "that looked like an explosion in an egg dying kit factory." The pregame of Wizards-Bulls featured a player from each team holding a sign "promoting the Twitter hashtag #getwellsager" (BROADCASTINGCABLE.com, 4/21).
