RE2PECT: New commercial pays tribute to Derek Jeter

Yankees icon Derek Jeter will be playing in his final All-Star Game on Tuesday night in Minneapolis, as the 40-year-old shortstop will lead off for the American League.

On Monday, one of Jeter's long-time sponsors, Nike, released a commercial paying tribute to the future Hall of Famer. The ad's name ""RE2PECT" is a tip of the cap to Jeter's jersey number - and a host of athletes and celebrities can be seen paying tribute to the Yankees captain.

The commercial features Jay-Z, Billy Crystal and Spike Lee - and even a couple of begrudging Red Sox fans - tipping their cap to the Bronx legend. Of course, the sportswear giant's orginal sponsorship king -- Michael Jordan himself - also makes a cameo.

You can watch the full commercial below.
