Toronto Raptors forward Danny Green wore an awesome jacket Tuesday night prior to his game four win over the Bucks.

Green wore a jacket featuring the faces of Stuart Scott and Craig Sager, both of whom died from cancer in the past few years.

Both men were also towering icons in the world of sports.

There’s no way you’re a diehard sports fan and weren’t also a gigantic fan of Scott and Sager. Sager was known for his unreal sideline persona during NBA games and Scott was one of the greatest men we ever saw on ESPN. (RELATED: Game 2 Of Bucks/Raptors Series Draws Lowest TV Ratings Since 2007)

Tragically, both men lost their fights to cancer, but served as incredible examples of what it means to fight every step of the way.

Green’s jacket was an awesome way to remember both of the legendary sports figures a few years after their respective deaths.

It’s a great example that you don’t have to do much in order to have a large impact when it comes to honoring somebody’s legacy.

All he did was wear a jacket, and the tweet above from ESPN quickly blew up on social media.

It was an awesome move from Green to honor two of the greatest guys to ever grace the world of sports. Both were taken from their family and fans far too soon, but luckily, YouTube is stocked with videos of their best moments.

Major props to Green for taking a moment to remember both men.
