Legends show Jeter 'RE2PECT' in tribute video

Tribune report

When you're a legendary athlete, you get a legendary send-off.

Michael Jordan, Phil Jackson, Tiger Woods and several other luminaries across sports and entertainment give a literal tip of the cap to New York Yankees great Derek Jeter in a video sponsored by Nike's Jordan Brand.

The spot, titled "RE2PECT," will air just before Jeter’s first at-bat during the All-Star Game on Tuesday (7 p.m., Fox). Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, Jay-Z, Carmelo Anthony, Billy Crystal, Spike Lee and former teammates Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettite also make appearances.

Jeter became the first baseball player to endorse the Jordan Brand when he signed in 1999.  He has 12 signature shoes, the most of any of the brand's athletes other than Jordan.
