ESPN’s Jay Bilas quotes Young Jeezy at commencement ceremony; ‘Real recognize real’ (Video)


Whether it’s him bashing the NCAA or making jokes on the commentary table during a college basketball broadcast, there might not be a coller member in all of sports media than ESPN’s Jay Bilas. Yes, in a company with a wealth of talking heads that are widely criticized, Bilas is among the more revered.

Well recently while giving a commencement ceremony speech, he proved that again as he decided to quote a famous philosopher for all of the young men and women that are getting ready to enter the real world.

That philosopher? Well, Young Jeezy, of course…


Yeah, once again Bilas proves that he’s in touch with this generation, which is what makes him so well-liked around the country in the first place.

But as much as we can joke about it, I’m sure that most of those students that were sitting in the crowd will remember Jay Bilas dropping some rap lyrics on them more than they would anyone else using quotes from a real philosopher.
