    Damn.. what a sad situation. I wonder what was the reasoning behind Sager's will. Family drama is hard to have a explanation sometimes

    It's a very difficult and (fairly) common situation when someone with an established family remarries, either after divorce or the death of their spouse. I don't know all the details here, but Craig Sr. was married for a fairly long time (15+ years) to this woman. She was a dancer with the Bulls and was 20 years younger than Sager. There are two sides to every story though.

    The all-too-real takeaway is to have a clear will ... and if you're not leaving anything to your children, sit down with them and communicate the reasons.

    This is pretty awful; and I would not be surprised if Sr. wrote another will, but it "disappeared"...

    Not only that, his wife saw the need to launch a preemptive strike against the children challenging a will that left her everything. That's almost like an admission something is up.

    I was in a similar situation. My father was snatched up by someone after my mother died and his new companion did everything possible to terminate any relationships he had prior to meeting her, including us 3 children. It was devastating to our family and to all of my father's longtime friends. To this day, I've never met anyone as vulgar and vile as this person (I'm not young either). Fortunately, unlike Craig Sager, my father didn't "shack up" while still married.

    This happens a lot with men that remarry a younger woman. I don’t handle this type of law but we have a few in the office that do.

    Men more often than they should seem to have no problem erasing their 1st family and replacing it with a younger wife whom they have kids with.

    It must be incredibly frustrating for his grieving children. This gold-digger enters their life a couple of years before he dies and she swoops in, takes everything, takes them to court and leaves Craig's son broke. They're just lashing out, which is understandable imo.

    according to his daughter, one of Craig's daughters and (ex) wife were in a car accident-sent to the hospital all bloody and whatnot, and he postponed his flight home to see them in order to cheat on her with his now wife.

    Aw man, this is beyond sad. How can humans be like this? Lawsuits and court cases over wills, custody and divorce are part of why the US is still a mess. Hope Craig’s family will not suffer any more than they have to. Why are they bringing up these things in public, nobody’s perfect.

    Pu**y or not. There is not a damn thing on this earth that would let/make me treat my child like crap. I am perfectly capable of finding happiness while still doing my best at being a good father.

    I am not saying Mr. Sager was not doing that. Just stating it in general.

    when you read about the truth behind the curtain here, it makes the league's horse and pony show bringing the golddigger on tour from arena to arena this season seem really pathetic now
