TNT analyst & the 2016 ESPN Jimmy V Perseverance Award winner Craig Sager is in rather great spirits after his rare third bone marrow transplant in 3 years. While recovering in Houston, Sager had become pretty lonely because his wife wouldn’t be able to join him for a few days because of a cold.

Enter NBA legend Charles Barkley, who defied his doctor’s orders after a recent hip replacement to hop on a plane and visit his friend & TNT coworker in the hospital. Barkley told the associated press that his doctors were pissed with him because he wasn’t medically cleared to travel after undergoing hip surgery last month.

“Craig Sager is one of the most interesting people I’ve ever met,” Barkley said. ”We go to see Sager to cheer him up and by the time you leave you’re like, ‘Is anything wrong with him?’ He has the most positive attitude … When you go to try and cheer him up his attitude is so upbeat he cheers you up.”
