Derek Jeter Gets #Re2pect From Michael Jordan, Jay-Z, And Tiger Woods


Derek Jeter has earned the respect of his peers, his rivals, his fans, and his advertising company during his 20 years in the MLB. Today, Jordan Brand released a tribute to the New York Yankees star to show how much #Re2pect they have for him.

Jeter, who was the first Jordan Brand-endorsed baseball player when he signed with the company in 1999, announced his retirement earlier this year. He’ll play in his final All-Star game this week and it wouldn’t be surprising to see a few tributes similar to the #Re2pect ad during the broadcast.

The new #Re2pect ad features tributes from athletes like Michael Jordan, Carmelo Anthony and Tiger Woods. It also features appearances from entertainers like Billy Crystal and Jay-Z. But the biggest tribute comes from Jeter’s rivals, like two Boston Red Sox fans, or a few unnamed New York Mets. Of course, Jeter also received some love on Twitter from his fans after the add aired.  

Check out the moving tribute to Derek Jeter below.
