Same goes with Magic Johnson. To bring so much awareness to a disease you have, with the honor he did, is legendary. I am way too young to see any of his boxing live. I still know a lot about the man without ever watching the Will Smith movie. Promote this thread!

Simply the Greatest.One of those names that everyone knows even if they never really saw him fight. Tragic but not unexpected for some reason since he's been in poor health for so many years due to parkinsons.

Not just as an athlete, but as a human being. Actually teared up when I was explaining the moment in the 96 Olympics when they turned the spotlight on him and he was handed the torch, arms trembling, and the look on his face as the crowd erupted. I pulled up some YouTube videos and showed her just how graceful and athletic he was, and then showed her the torch lighting video, and cried a little more . RIP Champ.

Unfortunately, you could say that about anyone who's been in UFC or WWE (or boxing or the NFL or...) for any length of time. I still think he'll fight at least once (and lose badly)
