Doug Gottlieb and Syracuse fans have a very fraught relationship for a number of reasons, but this morning the CBS Sports analyst posted a picture to Instagram that would make any Orange fan smile. Following in the footsteps of Reggie Miller, Gottlieb posted a picture in one of the "Pearl" shirts that the men's basketball program wore during warm-ups this year. The shirts are a tribute to legendary point guard Pearl Washington, who is currently battling a brain tumor. He even got his son involved to complete a "pray for Pearl" gesture.
Fans can purchase "Pearl" shirts to help fund medical care for the former Syracuse point guard PrayersforPearl.com, and donate to the cause at GoFundMe.
