There is no denying he’s a legend not only in baseball, but in the world of sports. Earlier this year, Derek Jeter announced that he is retiring from the field and will end his run as a New York Yankee at the end of this season.
Although there is plenty of baseball to play this year, tributes for the 40-year-old athlete are already here. Jordan Brand, a subsidiary of Nike, released an ad titled “RE2PECT” featuring a number of famous names in sports and entertainment tipping their hats to Jeter.
In a tight race, the U.S. defeated Spain today (August 12) to win the gold medal for Men's Basketball.
Kevin Durant scored 30 points for the team, topping LeBron James' 19 and Kobe Bryant's 17. The game echoed the 2008 Beijing gold medal game in which the U.S. pulled away in the fourth quarter from Spain to win 118-107.
