    Muhammad Ali is in “grave condition,” NBC Nightly News reports.
    Ali has been in a Phoenix-area hospital since Thursday with a respiratory condition. The Associated Press reported Friday that Ali’s condition “is concerning to family members” and that the respiratory issue is complicated by Ali’s Parkinson’s disease.
    His condition was initially described as “fair” and a spokesman said his stay in the hospital was expected to be brief.
    Ali, 74, is a three-time heavyweight champion. He retired from boxing in 1981 and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s three years later.

    I'm not going to lie, I thought he died a while ago. I know he had poor health for a long time. I hope he's resting in peace.

    I'm sad and thankful for his passing at the same time. Sad, because he was such a great human being. Thankful that finally his suffering has come to an end. You really were the greatest, Muhammad. R.I.P.

    In 1971, my father woke me up in the middle of the night, he wanted his little girl to see the historic fight between Ali and Frazier. He had done this only once before for the moon landing. When Muhammad Ali lighed the Olympic torch in 1996, my father was so moved, he cried for a moment. Next time he cried was in 2014 when he was dying in a hospital.

    Rest in peace, Muhammad Ali!

    “My friend called me a couple of days ago and asked me. He said, Muhammad wants you to — and I said “Yes.” I didn’t even let him finish. He could have said “mow the lawn,” and I would have been down with it.
    Muhammad’s my hero. He has been since I was a child. As you can see, he’s such an inspiration to many people.” - Prince

    I was a kid during the Cassius Clay "I am the Greatest" days. Our neighbors in Ohio were from Louisville, and said the real (then Cassius) guy was a very polite and modest - as opposed to the bluster of his then public persona. I never forgot that.

    I wonder how much of his illness was attributed to constant punches to the head.
