I bought the main commemorative magazines about Muhammad Ali's life: Time, ESPN, Rolling Stone and of course Sports Illustrated.
On such occasions they always assign the best resources they own to make a statement. Time's Robert Lipsyte without question carries the best edition, which could be expected considering how Lipsyte was close to Ali. Poor Rolling Stone is not even a shadow of its past and took the last position among its peers.
Was Rolling Stone's short interview with author Stephen King, however, that made the boldest remark out of all I read thus far:
Rolling Stone: What's the best advice you ever got?
Stephen King: It boils down to what Satchel Paige said: "Don't look back, something might be gaining on you." There will be people who like what you do, and people who don't. But if they're picking over the last thing and you're working on the next thing, that's all yours.
Genius. #brazilianjiujitsu #muhammadali #stephenking #philosophy #bjj
