On Friday, Muhammad Ali passed away, surrounded by friends and family. Rightfully considered the greatest athlete of all time -- both for his actions in the ring and in the real world -- Ali was a giant of the twentieth century.
Yesterday, many of the San Antonio Spurs' players took to twitter to express their love and admiration for the GOAT.
Tony Parker chimed in:
