YOU KNOW, THIS NICKLAUS FELLA has done alright for himself.
Jack Nicklaus was in New York City last night for the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year Ceremony. In case you missed it, tennis great Serena Williams won this year's SI sportsperson honor against tough competition that included Triple Crown-winner American Pharoah, NBA superstar Stephen Curry and golf's own Jordan Spieth.
Enjoy the above video clip. This from SI Communications:
The evening saw surprise guest Will Smith tribute the legacy of Muhammad Ali, with a raucous speech that included an impersonation of Ali and a heartfelt dedication to "The Greatest." Smith was on hand as part of the first ever Muhammad Ali Legacy Award presentation to legendary golfer, Jack Nicklaus. Lonnie Ali presented the award to Nicklaus who spoke glowingly about Muhammad Ali and his own wife and family, the inspiration behind his philanthropic devotion to children. Nicklaus and Serena also appeared on stage together, with the celebrated golfer praising her work ethic and competitive drive.
