Craig Sager's ESPY Speech Ranks Among the Greats

In 1993, Jim Valvano delivered one of the best speeches the world has ever seen. If you haven't been fortunate enough to witness it, you need to check it out. Valvano was suffering from cancer at the time, but his positive, heartfelt words were simply inspiring. 

The Jimmy V Award for Perseverance is awarded during the ESPYs to honor those who, in Jimmy V's words himself, "don't ever give up." This year, the recipient was Craig Sager, who's undergone treatment for three separate occurrences of leukemia. He's remained positive and spirited throughout an immensely challenging time. His acceptance speech was no different – do yourself a favor and watch this. It'll brighten your day.
