He strategized, he was a thinking man in what some would consider a thoughtless game. I knew then he was the champion of champions and there would be no one in my lifetime that would be better.

Not only was Muhammad Ali a tremendous athlete, but his reach transcended far from the ring during a remarkable time of struggle and change in society. Parker thoughtfully distills Ali’s legendary status but also reflects on his influence growing up. Nice piece of writing, Parker!

Here is the link. It is a worthwhile read.
