NBA Players Past And Present Express Condolences, Respect For Ali

The death of boxing legend Muhammad Ali late Friday at the age of 74 drew a massive response from, well, pretty much everyone around the globe.

NBA players were especially active among those offering tributes, taking to Twitter to express their respect for the world sporting icon known simply and affectionately as “The Greatest.”

Hall of Famer Charles Barkley also issued a statement on the passing of Ali: “‘Hero’ and ‘Legend’ are used casually today. Muhammad Ali, Dr. Martin Luther King and Bill Russell are both and always will be. I can’t thank these three men enough and it has nothing to do with sports. Thank you, Champ. RIP.”
